I have only read six of her books and generally the newest ones at that. I'm trying to check her older books out of the library but there's such a wait!
Currently my favs are The Pact: a love story and The Tenth Circle. But I'm starting Nineteen Minutes tonight! So, we'll see if I change my mind.
edited for touchstones
I have also read My Sisters Keeper and Keeping Faith of which My Sisters Keeper has been my favourite although i thoroughly enjoyed Nineteen Minutes
I try not to read books by the same author, one after another, so i have just started Sparkles by Louise Bagshawe
So far I've also read Keeping Faith, Plain Truth, and Salem Falls ... I didn't think they were all that great though, so they don't make my "Favourites" list.
My next Picoult read will be The Pact: A Love Story ... I'm really looking forward to that ... I've heard great things about it.
I really like Plain Truth, Keeping Faith and Second Glance, of those I think Plain Truth was my favorite...but that's a hard call.
I wasn't that impressed with Picture Perfect or Salem Falls...they seemed to drag for me...

She is a great author and I am looking forward to her next book release over here!
1. My Sister's Keeper-- the first book I ever read, and I literally could not put it down
2. Nineteen Minutes-- a very close second
3. The Pact: A Love Story
4. Plain Truth
5. Perfect Match
6. Vanishing Acts
The next three I didn't care for all that much:
7. Second Glance
8. The Tenth Circle - boring
9. Songs of a Humpback Whale - horrible!
5 stars: My Sister's Keeper - Absolutely loved it!
4.5 stars: Songs of the Humpback Whale - Sorry #18, I have to disagree with you on this one - I found it quite original in the way it was written, as well as entertaining.
4 stars: The Pact; Nineteen Minutes; and Harvesting the Heart
3.5 stars: Vanishing Acts; the Tenth Circle; and Perfect Match
3 stars: Salem Falls - Still a good read, but not likely one I'll ever go back to.
I am new to this group. I love all of Jodi's books. I have read them all. I am currently reading Change of Heart, I think it might be my new favorite. But from her past novels I think I liked Vanishing Acts the best.
I'm currently reading my fourth Jodi novel - The Pact and have yet to find myself having that "same song, second verse" feeling that so often comes with reading several works by the same author.
I'm even hoping to get my fiance hooked on her books too!
Handle With Care =1 (I was attracted to all of this book)
Keeping Faith=2 (I believe in miracles)
Tenth Circle=3 (I have read Dante's Inferno.. bravo)
My Sisters Keeper=4 (a real thinker)
Mercy=5 (little ticked off at these characters, wanted to beat Cam..#$@&)
Vanishing Acts=6 (did not care for this one very much)
Have just ordered Nineteen Minutes, The Pact and Change of Heart... and cant wait for lazy days of summer.
Just got a hardback brand new book of Harvesting the heart as a christmas present - really looking forward to this.
Just read House Rules - very very good.
My Sisters Keeper is my favorite so far, because I have a sister who I would do anything for. Also my sister went to a doctors appointment with me one day, and she pulled My Sisters Keeper out and asked if I had seen it yet. We both got a kick out of the fact that I had brought the same book to read. I always thought we were 100% made to be sisters, and that just proved it.
I love ninteen minutes, i was so close to doing the same thing myself, I saw the light.
Just finished 'Change of heart'
