I just finished "I Know What You Did Last Summer" by Lois Duncan - I felt it was brilliantly written. There were many plot twists, and sometimes a bit of sharp wit tossed around in there. All in all, one of the best books I've read in a long time.
I started "The Word for World is Forest" by Ursula K. LeGuin; it's amazing. I'll type out what's on the back of the book for ya. That's what got me hooked. What I love is her description methods. My grandpa loved this author before he passed.
"The planet Athshe was a paradise whose people were blessed with a mystical awareness of existence.

Also, I really want to read Tortilla Curtain - Looks very interesting, and I happen to enjoy informational books that will deliver some powerful message. Or, at least, that's how I perceive that book's story.
A flurry of Ted Dekker books is my biggest wish for Christmas - I am, indeed, copius with his work already, whether it be with Frank Peretti or on his own. Still. He's my favorite author, with John Grisham being a close second. The books I want are: Skin, In The Blink Of An Eye, and Adam.
