Name one book that you read and enjoyed recently. What did you like about it?

"Where'd You Go, Bernadette". I enjoyed it because it was quirky. It was about a daughter's struggle to find and connect with her brilliant, yet odd and emotionally stunted mother.

Who is your favorite writer?

That is a hard question! I love George Eliot because there is such beauty and feeling in her writing. Arthur Conan Doyle and Michel Faber are the only two authors I've read so far who actually make me feel like I'm in London. As Byatt's works are moving and creative. Laurie R King has such imagination when it comes to adding a new character to the Sherlock Holmes saga, and bringing Holmes into the 20th century. JK Rowling is a beautiful storyteller. Jasper Fford's "Thursday Next" novels are a wild ride. Mark Twain's works are smart and full of wit. I love the Russians. The Russian writers do emotions well. I can go on and on and on!

Share one other detail about yourself

I will never read Fifty Shades of Grey. There I said it.


Hi, I'm Lauren. I'm 26 and I work as a consultant from home. I moved to Boston after living for six years in London. I moved here to be with my fiance. I love reading, cooking, animals, and traveling.
