The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer I've read the books before the movies came out and I had a PERFECT Twilight world created in my teenage mind... Even Edward was so beautiful yet he doesn't even exist. aaand then the movies had to ruin everything- but it did wake me up to REALITY lol
The Shopaholic Series The Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella was a guilty pleasure of mine in my early 20s, starting with Confessions of a Shopaholic. I read the whole series in a few short weeks. Whether leading lady, Rebecca Brandon (née Bloomwood), was rationalizing outrageous Harrods purchases or wrecking havoc in her personal life, the books were quick and really fun reads.

I seriously love this book. It is one of the most powerful and stick with you books I have ever read. I actually read it before any of the Twilight books (it is why I read them). Now, granted I love Sci-Fi/Fantasy so it didn't scare me off like it may some, but damn what a great story. I also just discovered they are making a movie of it out next year.
