I'm quite a big fan of crime novels, stuff like Kathy Reichs, Martina Cole etc. I really like Karin Slaughter as well and her 'Grant County' series. The first in the series, 'Blindsighted' is pretty bleak and pretty graphic, but at the same time it keeps you hooked. Martina Cole is very similar in that respect. Not for the squeamish really.

I did think that American Gods by Neil Gaiman should be made into a film when I first read it, but they're making it into a tv series which is obviously way better. I have two favourite books that I think they should make into a film.
The Historian- Elizabeth Kostova
The Tiger's Wife - Tea Obrecht
The Tiger's Wife is set in the Balkans and explores with a young doctor, Natalia, trying to uncover the circumstances around her Grandfather's death. There are also two myths within the story itself, which feature her grandfather; his experiences with the Tiger's Wife and The Deathless Man.
It's very strange but an incredibly beautiful story. I'd love to see it made into a film.
