I also have several by Jodi Picoult. I know that I have liked several books of hers, so hopefully these will be easy reads.
I also have 2 books by Kristin Hannah-True Colors and Winter Garden. I've never read anything by her, but they were buy 2 get one free several months back at BAM.The Help by Kathryn Stockett, they are making a movie based on this book, so it's on the must list!
These are the ones on the top of my list. We will see how this all turns out by the end of the year.
