    #2After Forever Ends

    After Forever Ends

    After Forever Ends by Melodie Ramone is a chick lit about women's coming to age and reliving life lessons and love. Go for a one-sitting read with this book but better be prepared with a box of tissue for fallen tears caused by imagination.

    "If you are a fan of Gothic literature then The Thirteenth Tale will be an enjoyable read. I'm kind of disappointed that the novel didn't really go more into detail about the twin characters, but I really enjoyed their role in the novel."

    "Twins share that special bond that no one else, except for other sets of twins, can truly understand. The novel "Ill give you the Sun" by Jandy Nelson does an exceptional job capturing the story and bond between two inseparable twins. I loved how dynamic each character was and how each page keeps the readers interest to learn what happens next. A best book for both twins and nontwins to enjoy!"

    "Shakespeare isn't for everyone, but if you're interested in reading something a bit more light-hearted from his oeuvre, this would be a good choice. I'm not sure that I would consider it a "best" book featuring twins simply because it's not as approachable as you might want a book to be. "

    "Pat Conroy is a classic writer. If "My Losing Season" or "Lords of Discipline" wasn't for you because you aren't into sports or from a military family, The Prince of Tides might be your best bet for experiencing his style. Families coping with painful events is what Conroy does best, and in this book, that familial feeling focuses on a set of twins. If you are a twin or have twins in your family, this may especially resonate with you, because there are some pains that only they know."

    "Exotic regions and a patina of history, not to mention a unique and novel story line, make this a must read for all lovers of historical fiction. Too many books of this genre follow a somewhat rote formula, but this novel breaks away from the pack."

    "Wally Lamb is one of my favorite authors ever! In "I Know This Much Is True", Lamb weaves together intertwining stories that, taken as a whole, bring the reader through the lives of twin brothers. The saga of the Birdsey twins is heartbreaking, sensitive, sweet, and at times, funny. I have read this book three times, and each time it has struck me and stayed with me for a long time after I finished the last page. "
