Can you recommend some good books? ?

I want a real page turner. Something so good you don't want to put it down.

I'm 26 and a woman. I like novels.I like the work of black women writers Bebe Moore Campbell and Mary Monroe. I recently read Middlesex and that was good. I read She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb. I'm looking for Oprah Book Club-esque type books. Thanks.


Sorry for the errors but I am rushing right now. I'm trying to do a lot.

    Well I am 11 and I like different things but I reccomend you try the Percy jackson and the Olympians it is fantasy but very addictin

    Of course almost every bookworm has read the Harry Potter series!

    What about Eragon it is not my favorite but good.

    I read Little Women and love it one of the few books that I have read that are not fantasy.

    The Yearling is alright I don't know why but it popped in my head.

    Oops I just read how you said you wanted oprah books sorry well i guess other people might like these?

    Carl Weber has some good books. So You Call Yourself A Man is indeed a page turner. If you haven't read it yet, then you should. Your mouth will be hanging open at the twists and turns. Playa Hatas is also a good book by him as well.

    There is another author call Daaimah Poole who has some good books also. I read three books of hers and they were all good. She's one of Essence magazine Best Selling Authors.

    Currently I am reading The Sisters of Theta Phi Kappa by Kayla Perrin. So far it's alright. Two people have told me that it's a really good book, so I am looking forward to reading the rest of it.

    I was going to suggest the Twilight saga by Stephenie Meyer, but I'm not quite sure if that meets your Oprah Book Club-esque type expectations.

    I will still put the recommendation out there, should you want to check it out.

    It's an amazing series, I read each book 4 times over.

    You should honestly try reading it.
