    Memoirs of a Geisha and White Oleander I loved both of those, with Memoirs of a Geisha I seen the movie first and then I knew I must read the book, if you ever get the chance read them both. 🙂

    Hi Lori… I haven’t seen either movie. I read White Oleander years ago, but just read Geisha earlier this year. I really enjoyed both.

    I’m not a fan of the fantasy type books (or movies) either.

    You MUST read Pride and Prejudice – it’s an all-time favorite of mine!

    My sister is a huge fan of Barbara Taylor Bradford’s. We met her at a book signing/speaking engagement last year… she’s a fun woman!
