Books and Authors I would personally recommend
by Jenny Walsh

Try other books by the same author.  There are many other good books out there.  Just look and read the cover to find out if it is about appropriate content.  Lady Chatterly's Lover is automatically out, even if lots of people recommend it.  The subject is inappropriate.  If the New York Times calls it a sexy, steamy thriller, skip it.  If something makes you feel uncomfortable or you feel like your parents would not be happy if they found you reading it, stop reading.

Have fun reading!  Share your favorite books with your friends!
