erinpayton is not currently reading any books.
I’m 34 years old, female, from the United States. I’ve been a DailyLit member since March 23, 2010. My reading interests include Classics.
The Sookie Stackhouse books--starting with #2.
I think genre/series books are great for reading alone, but bad for book clubs/group discussions. If it follows a formula, what's to talk about? Recently i read "Girl with a Dragon Tattoo" (which I didn't particularly care for) for a book club, and really it's a mystery. Once you know whodunit, what's to discuss?
I thought "The Help" and "American Wife" led to some great discussions.
I read 1984 in 8th grade for school and thought it was just way too adult for me--it kind of soured me on a lot of contemporary classics.
The first books that shaped my love of trashy books were "Til We meet again" by Judith Krantz and "So Worthy, My Love" by Kathleen Woodiwiss--both were my grandmother's! I learned things from that Krantz book that scarred me for years! But Woodiwiss definitely sparked a love for trashy historical fiction that continued on for years!
I actually really loved Andre Agassi's "Open." I was surprised at how entertaining of a writer he was.
Quite entertaining--great old-fashioned mystery! Holmes knows absolutely everything!
