I began to read 19 Minutes today, I reccomend that^...I'm only 110 pages in but I have a theory on what the twist/secret of one of the main characters might be already..

My Sister's Keeper is one of my favorite books, and it's what got me intrigued into Jodi Picoult's stories. I'm in the middle of The Tenth Circle right now. It's good, but it's not really holding my attention. Trixie turns me off a lot, just as others were saying a page back.

I love Jodi's books! My Mum introduced me to them and I've been hooked ever since. I've read a few, 'Vanishing Acts', 'Salem Falls', 'Keeping Faith', 'The Pact'. Ummm... I can't remember anymore. The law bit interests me a little bit but it's the topics she covers which capture my interest. I think Keeping Faith was my favourite one

I finally started My Sister's Keeper and couldn't put it down. This is one of my favorites so far! It's been a while since a book has brought tears to my eyes, but this definitely did.

I also finished The Tenth Circle since the last time I posted. I didn't know what to expect because I read some comments on here that weren't great, but I still read it. I thought it was good, but felt like it left some things unresolved at the end. Definitely not one of my favorites, but I'd still recommend it to Jodi fans.

I didn't know Nineteen Minutes was released already, but know that I do, I'll be buying it soon

I actually got to read her book, My Sisters Keeper, and returned to my library to renew it, never saw it again. Someone took it.

It's my favourite book... I read it in Grade 6, when my teacher gave it to me to read because I had practically read everything in the library, and I really loved it.

I Jodi!

So far, I've read:

Vanishing Acts, My Sister's Keeper, The Pact, Perfect Match, Salem Falls, The Tenth Circle, and Nineteen Minutes. And currently, I am halfway through Mercy.



I was very please with every book overall, but the only one I did not feel a special connection with was The Tenth Circle. It was good, but something seemed off to me.

I finished Nineteen Minutes about a week or so ago. It's an amazing book. My Sister's Keeper is my number one--but this one definitely gave it a run for it's money.

Sad that a week later a similar story unfolds on the actual news.

Heartbreaking.

The book really makes you see how something like this can affect everyone--from the shooter to the victims, to the parents.

I have five of her books: The Pact, My Sister's Keeper, The Tenth Circle, Vanishing Acts and Nineteen Minutes.

Which one do you recommend that I start with?

My Sister's Keeper was the first book I had ever read of hers and it's the one that made me fall in love with her writing.

But as for what is going on in the news I might lean more towards Nineteen Minutes (Which deals with a school shooting)

You really can't go wrong at all though with any of the books. (Except maybe Tenth Circle--it's my least favorite of her books)

My Sister's Keeper is the first book of hers I ever read as well. Loved it. And I just all of Jodi's books.

I haven't read Nineteen Minutes yet though. I'm going to pick it up this week.

I've only read The Pact so far, but I also have Nineteen Minutes and My Sister's Keeper.
I'm excited for the next book, I've read alittle about it. Is it true that some of her characters from an older book will be in the newest? If so which book?
