Reading Ideas Needed!

I went to the library today and I checked out two books (The Undaunted and Anita Stansfield's latest.) I'm excited about these books. But I need more ideas. I may have asked for ideas before, but I am ready to make a list this time. So hopefully some of you will take a minute and give me some ideas. The last books I read were written by Nicholas Sparks (just to give you an idea of my typical genre.)

I only have a few "guidelines" when it comes to the books I like to read.

1. They have to have something uplifting in them.

2. They can NOT end sad or bad!!

3. No vulgarity or dirty romance.

Wish I could think of any right now. I am also looking for something new to read.

Have you seen goodreads.com? It is the best place to keep your lists of books and get recommendations from family and friends. I love it.

**One in Thine Hand - Gerald Lund
**The Coffin Quilt - Ann Rinaldi
**The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society - Mary Ann Shaffer
*The Maze Runner - James Dashner
*Hope Was Here - Joan Bauer
*Wings - Aprilynne Pike
*The Girl Who Could Fly - Victoria Forester
*The Actor and the Housewife - Shannon Hale
*Lemon Tart - Josi Kilpack
*Star Girl - Jerry Spinelli
*Found - Margaret Peterson Haddix
*Austenland - Shannon Hale
*What the Doctor Ordered - Sierra St. James

P.S. The *'s don't mean anything. I apparently started with 2 and ended up doing one. They aren't a rating system by any means. :)

Heidi has a ton of suggestions and you can find lots of other suggestions on GOODREAD. My mom has compiled a list also. Let me know and I'll have her send it to you. She assigns 1,2,3,or 4 stars to her books. As for me, unfortunately I haven't kept track very well.

I'm on Goodreads also. I haven't done the best job keeping it up, but maybe your other friends have. I really like it because I add to my "to read" list what my friends are reading that looks interesting.

Yes, check out goodreads, but I really think you would like Janette Oke as an author. She is a Christian novelist. My favorite is the Song of Acadia series. The Love Comes Softly series is also awesome.
