My favorite book so far, is Paint It Black, by Janet Fitch. I think I'll just copy paste what it's about, since I'm not good in telling long stories in a few sentences :)

From the inside cover:

Josie Tyrell, art model, teen runaway, and denizen of LA's rock scene, finds a chance at real love with art student Michael Faraday. A Harvard dropout and son of a renowned pianist, Michael introduces Josie to a world of sophistication she had never dreamed existed and to his spiritual quest for the beauty that shines through everyday experience. But when she receives a call from the Los Angeles County coroner, asking her to identify her lover's dead body, her bright dreams all turn to black. "What happens to a dream when the dreamer is gone?" This is the question Josie asks as she searches for the key to understanding Michael's death. And as she struggles to hold on to the true world he shared with her, she is both repelled by and attracted to Michael's pianist mother, Meredith, who holds Josie responsible for her son's torment. Joined by their grief, the two women are soon drawn into a twisted relationship that reflects equal parts distrust and blind need. Passionate, wounded, and fiercely alive, Josie Tyrell walks the brink of her own destruction as she fights to discover what is left of the brilliant vision of the future she and Michael once nurtured together.

I liked it for several reasons. First, it happens in the early eighties. Second, it's about art (well, not all the time, but I like it, since I'm in Art Academy for the first year now). And third, it's kind of a sad love story. I like it when there's not a happy ending, for a change. Although I was kinda sad to have finished the book, knowing there won't be a part two :P

Does anyone know the WARRIOR CATS books?
I love them :lol: <3

A forest. Four clans. And all want to survive.
For generations, four Clans of wild cats have shared the forest according to the laws laid down by the powerful ancestors. But the warrior code is threatened, and the ThunderClan cats are in grave danger. The sinister ShadowClan grows stronger every day. Noble warriors are dying -- and some deaths are more mysterious than others.
In the midst of this turmoil appears an ordinary housecat named Rusty . . . Who may yet turn out to be the bravest warrior of them all.
Fire alone can save the Clan...

For interested :lol:

I'm very into books about things that have happened in real life. One of my favorite authors are Torey Hayden who writes about her experiences with children. She's a specialist on psychological handicaps. "Ghost girl" is emotional, scary, confusing and very interesting.

I'll translate the back-cover as well as I can...
"As a specialist for psychologically handicapped children Torey Hayden comes to a small town in the middle west. She has a great deal of knowledge about these sorts of problems and lots of experience. But even for her, a child like Jadie is a mystery; an introvert and tortured girl who refuses to talk when she's in school. When Torey with great patience gets her to talk, a ghost like world opens up. Jadie's imagination about odd symbols and sexual behaviours is a sign that she's been exposed to ritual asults. Her surroundings fear and unwillingness don't make things easier when Torey is forced into a confrontation with black magic and satanism."

It's the story about Pamela des Barres, the world's most famous groupie, in wich she tells you about all the love-issues she's had, and pretty much her whole life with the rockstars.. Mick Jagger is a perfect example of someone she used to fuck. ;)
