Haven't seen or read any of those. I do like O'Nan and Chang-rae Lee.

Wow. I think this is the first time that I haven't seen or read at least one of the things on your list. I guess i better get crackin', huh?

Yikes! I have not seen or read any of these either. I'm in the middle of a long series myself. Its total fluff for fun. Not serious reading. Movies are not something I see much. The ones on Xfinity OnDemand aren't very good. Of course I am cheap and watch the free ones. Perhaps if I paid for one I'd have better choices.

Realize I have not read any of these, and these are based on reviews from Entertainment Weekly. I"m not sure if I've read a book yet that I got from EW to see how their reviews are... We'll see!

@Laura - I haven't even heard of the author.
@Churlita - you already crack!
@SR - Fluff is great sometimes!
@ Mrs. - It was a great book. Such a great one I'm scared to see the movie... maybe when I forget it more.
