Stacy Julian: the big picture
Read it and apply the concept. It is liberating!
Richard Russo: Empire Falls
Nora Roberts: Red Lily : In the Garden Trilogy (In the Garden (Paperback))
Nora Robers is one of the best chick lit authors around. I turn to her trilogies whenever I am looking for a little romance and mystery.
Jennifer Weiner: Little Earthquakes
I read it, I loved it, and I'm leaving it on the list for a while. It's as good as In Her Shoes, but completely different.
Elizabeth Brundage: The Doctor's Wife
I could not put this book down.
Amy Krouse Rosenthal: Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life
Get it. Read it. Try it with journaling.
