About 3 - Is Sofia Kindsell an Estonian writer? Because the name resembles Sophie Kinsella's and she has written a book about secrets as well ...

So, any books of the list so far you would highly recommend? =)

:D icon!

oh.. hehe ups. Thats what i get for copy pasting from my random notes and not paying attention to all that, i mean i even had the headline wrong. Thanks for the heads up :)

Highly recommend...
well i suppose not particularly but all of them have been rather ok books.
First off I'd say Coraline the audiobook, just cause Neil Gaiman reads it himself and does it brilliantly - it was such a joy to listen to it, really.

My favorite so far has been Kim Harrison's "The Good the Bad and the Ugly" it's the second in Rachel Morgan series and was better then the first one. I mean if you like Witches, Vampires, pixies, werewolf's action/mystery stuff.

Thanks for the recs. :D I'm making a mental note!

hehe :D well you couldn't make me read shopaholics on a gun point (mostly because i just don't like the style and find it utterly boring ... as far as I've gotten from it, maybe I read a page) but I've done my share reading of these things or well maybe not books that close to can you keep a secret. Usually I just forget reading them really quick. It was lying around the house so i sort of picked it up and started reading it was funny and i enjoyed it. I've even read Barbala Cartland and thats saying a lot! gawd *laughs* i love to mock her tough.
