I need to buy a birthday present for my brothers girlfriend and he said to get her a book. He said she likes Ian McEwan and Jodi Picoult so something along those lines. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

Shelli Jo...I haven't read it...but picked it up at the library sale yesterday....Chasing Fireflies: A Novel of Discoverylooks like it got decent reviews...IDK much about it...but it kind of seemed like those kind of authors.

Thanks, Shelli! One of the reviews compared the writing to Nicolas Sparks which i am sure i have seen on her bookshelf.

J. Rubino (jrubino) A few writers whose names often appear in the "if you like Jodi Picoult" category are: Sue Miller, Rosellen Brown, Anita Shreve, Jacqueline Mitchard. Check them out on Amazon to see if they're what you're looking for.

Diane  (dianedj) I would definitly buy him a book by one of those authors if you can find out one or two that he doesn't have. And if all else fails, a gift card to her favorite bookstore.

Sarah (sarah23l) Jo, if she likes Nicholas Sparks, he has a new book out called Safe Haven.

I'm guessing she will have got that herself. I ended up ordering Fortune's Rocks by Anita Shreve. Hope she likes it!

Mark Slee | 1 comments Good choice Jo, I think she will love it :-))
Chesil Beach is also good and a book I have always recommended which was a surprisingly good read for me was "The Pursuit of Happiness" by Douglas Kennedy

I'm not sure which of Ian McEwans books she already has so i steered clear of him.
Is The Pursuit of Happiness related to the movie?
