Recommend me a good book!

What have you read lately that's been really awesome? Or your all time favourite 'must-read'? I'm not a fan of sci-fi or fantasy, so Harry Potter and LOTR and the like are out, but open to almost everything else.

I thought I'd never in a million years read HP, couldn't think of anything worse. Then a friend finally talked me into at least trying and I was hooked by about page 5 of the first book! Looooved it!
I'm currently making my way through the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. The first book, One For The Money, was made into a movie with Katherine Heigl. I'm up to the 7th book now and still loving it. I literally laugh out loud reading it (which often annoys my husband as I only read at night in bed these days)

Melissa, I'm really open to anything, but at this point I suppose something light would be best to ease into things. I'm quite interested in venturing into books about feminism, but maybe should get some fluffy stuff under my belt first.

Some books I've read lately and enjoyed (I've managed to read them while being back in full time work for the first time in six years - so they're all lighter reads but not complete 'fluff'):
The Rosie Project (Graema Simsion) https://www.goodread...e-rosie-project
The Forgotten Garden (Kate Morton)
Life after Life (Kate Atkinson)
The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared (Jonasson, Jonas)
Memoirs of an imaginary friend (Matthew Dicks)
The light between oceans (M.L Stedman)
A week in winter (Maeve Binchy)
What alice forgot (Liane Moriarty)
Me before you - Jojo Moyes

Both series are cosy mysteries set in Melbourne, but Phryne Fisher is 1920s, while Corinna is modern.
Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries (TV series on ABC) is based on the Phryne Fisher books. The first one is Cocaine Blues.
The first Corinna Chapman is Earthly Pleasures - I think this is the better series but many people love Phryne

When I am grown up I will understand how beautiful it feels to administrate my life effectively.
Until then I will continue to torch all correspondence that bores me and to dance naked over the remnants of its still glowing embers. ~ Edward Monkton
