I've read The Pact by Jodi Picoult. The book was excellent, but the movie was just dreadful. It butchered an excellent story. Do you have a favourite book from her collection?

 

Lately I've been into psychological thrillers. I enjoyed watching both seasons of You and decided to pick up the book by Caroline Kepnes which inspired the programme. The book is supposed to be better, but I guess that's usually true. I plan to read her next book too.

Interesting, I didn't know that any of Jodi Picoult's books were made into movies. I don't have a favorite, I have loved them all. They are so real.

 

I haven't heard of Caroline Kepnes. I will look her up to see if I want to add her to the must-read list, thanks!

A fair few have been made into movies. The best one is probably My Sister's Keeper. The story is riveting, but be prepared for the waterworks because it's a tearjerker. Are all of her books evocative?

I think I've read most of her books too. I watched My Sister's Keeper, I loved it. It was very sad but a great movie. Nineteen Minutes was probably the saddest one I read. It took me at least 3 times to finish it. I kept putting it down and read something else in between.

Nineteen Minutes was a tough one to read. I love that the books are real. School shootings, Autistic kids, family drama, etc.. I haven't watched any of the movies. I am more of a book person.

Jodi Picoult has been writing for the longest time (her debut novel Songs of the Humpback Whale came out in 1992), but I feel embarrassed that I haven't read any of her works. I will challenge myself with one of her books before the end of next month. I can't think of any favorite authors as yet, and my current read is Oliver Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout.
