    My absolute favorite is Welcome to the World, Baby Girl by Fannie Flagg. It's basically a story of a woman trying to find out about her past and how that affects her life.

    I am a BIG fan of Melanie Rawn (I have all of the books she's ever had published but 1) Especially the Exiles (unfinished) trilogy.

    i can't think of all the titles of the great books that i've read, so i'll go by how they're classifyed...could be by series, or by author, or just by the bookstore/library way of putting it

    romance
    historical romance
    fearless series
    the lurlene mcdaniel books
    any books by marianne curley
    alias books
    avon true romances
    x-files books

    and so many more...it's not even funny

    ::nods:: (y) Francine Pascal...These books are wonderful! They're full of action and tension and deceit and killing... and it's, to me, very much like Alias!!!!

    eeeee... :shocked: i used to like those but now that i think about it... those were reeeaaallly baad!!! :wacky: but...

    Fearless is so different... it's a totally different type of story, writing style and the main character, Gaia is NOTHING like those diztes in Sweet Valley who worried about their hair or makeup... Gaia worries about her life!
