Oh!

What did you think of ‘Sing you Home’? I thought the combining of music with the book was really interesting. Loved the ending too :)

i quite enjoyed it - it was my first ever Jodi Picoult read~

and i found it quite absorbing.

like you, I liked the ending~ found it very fitting. :-)

i’ve heard, though, that she has a bit of a formula going on, so that when you’ve read a couple of her books, you kind of know how the rest are going to go…

... have you read more books by her? if so, do you find that to be true?

I have read

quite a few of her books, she’s one of my favourite authors :)

I think the theory that she has a formula for her books is true to some extent, especially for her later ones. On the other hand, her ‘House Rules’ I found very different to her usual style. The same with ‘Keeping Faith.’ To me, it’s the same formula, but each book still has it’s own uniqueness to it.

Would definitely recommend ‘My Sister’s Keeper’ and ‘The Pact’ if you’re interested in reading more by her.

thanks for the recommendations`

I will definitely check them out sometime, although right now I have at least 3 books that I’m concurrently reading, plus a whole bunch more on my holds list, so it may be a long while…

but eventually… :)

No problem

Wow really? I can manage to read two books concurrently, I think I’d struggle with 3. Although, I’m reading Lord of the Rings now and find I need to break it up a lot with lighter reading.

I love holds :)
