I also enjoyed John Grisham, back in the days when I was dreaming of becoming a lawyer, and way before the books became movies. I used to read Nicholas Sparks too, but felt his books to me too emotional for me.
In college, I devoured Judith McNaught & Jude Deveraux. After college, I went through the Asian female authors like Amy Tan. Chick lits are another favorite - the Shopaholic series, the two books of Kristin Gore. And who could not love Paulo Coelho and Gabriel Garcia Marques?
I used to buy a lot of books - and not from the discounted shelves. But now, I mostly buy from the sales or discounted racks. I'd rather buy the new titles for my little one. And that's where I found Blue Bloods by Melissa De La Cruz. I couldn't put it down, had to sleep at 3am on a week day! I enjoyed it a lot. I didn't have time to hunt for her other books on a real book store after reading the Blue Bloods... you know, life took over. So I was super elated when E, an office mate, showed me a link of online books and I found 3 more books of Melissa! I read Masquerade, Revelations and The Van Alen Legacy in 2 days, resting only for sleep, meals and a bit of work LOL Loved the books and can't wait to get copies of the last 2 books in the series.
