Sherry  | 3570 comments Life Sentences- laura lipman (i was disappointed with this one)
Live to Tell- lisa gardner (another good one by gardner, although the story was a little dark)
The Blessings of the Animals: A Novel- katrina kittle (loved it)
The Passage- justin cronin (if i'd know this was the first in a trilogy, i'm not sure i'd have read it. was good, but not my favorite genre)
The Red Thread- ann hood (i needed something much lighter after reading the passage and this fit the bill perfect. loved it)
One Day-david nicholls (everyone i know who read this book loved it. i didn't . i liked it, but didn't love it. the ending was very predictable)

Barry (barrypz) | 2943 comments Lippman seems to have changed her genre. I'm kind of afraid to buy her now.

I have this on library reserve. It seems to be the new favorite among reviewers which often means that I won't like it either. I'll let you know if I ever get my copy (tons of reserves ahead of me).

Melodie (melodieco) | 3589 comments Not a bad month. I haven't been reading THE PASSAGE threads, but am thinking about giving it a shot.

i think you'll like the passage, melodie. read the no spoiler thread and you'll get a sense of the book without any spoilers.

I caught Laura on TV on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson this week and the new book sounded intriguing. I haven't read enough of her books to note a change of genre? She mentioned it is a very dark book. I guess I thought her books were rather dark.
