Name: Twilight

Genre: Fantasy, Romance

Story Outline: 
Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) has always been a little bit different, never caring about fitting in with the trendy girls at her Phoenix high school. When her mother remarries and Bella decides to go live with her father in the rainy little town of Forks, Washington, she doesnt expect much of anything to change. Then she meets the mysterious and dazzlingly beautiful Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), a boy unlike any she's ever met. Intelligent and witty, he sees straight into her soul. Soon, Bella and Edward are swept up in a passionate and decidedly unorthodox romance. Edward can run faster than a mountain lion, he can stop a moving car with his bare hands, and he hasn't aged since 1918. Like all vampires, he's immortal. But he doesn't have fangs, and he doesn't drink human blood, though Edward and his family are unique among vampires in this lifestyle choice. To Edward, Bella is the thing he has waited 90 years for - a soulmate. But the closer they get, the more Edward must struggle to resist the primal pull of her scent, which could send him into an uncontrollable frenzy. But what will they do when Laurent (Edi Gathegi) and James (Cam Gigandet), the Cullens' mortal vampire enemies, come to town, looking for Bella?

Why do you recommend it: It's a fun and interesting read.

Michael Connelly. He's the IT author for the crime genre nowadays. His novels are gripping, realistic and always have a bumper climax. His writing style is very easy to follow, and he doesn't bore you with too many details and avoids sounding like a poet. 

Try any of his novels, you'll love it.

Hug thank you soo much..
i really appreciate it..
i would love to try " The Scarecrow". but i dont think i will go for "city of bones".
though i love racy thrillers i cant handle out n out murder mystery well.
i read james hadley chase's Orchid series a looongg time back n they still haunt me.
and i believe Michael Connelly deals with only murder mysteries..
Too much of murder n i ll switching lights on in nights...
So plz plz plz if i m not asking for too much can u suggest someone who deals with different genres ala Michael Crichton..( my personal favourite is matthew reilly.unrealistic but entertaining)...
Thank you soo much once again..
regards,
Nimmi
