Hi, my community. :)

I think I get pickier with age. I'm fairly particular about what I like to read now. I like it when books make me feel hopeful and inspired. I tend to prefer somewhat light-hearted stories with a female main character. It's nice when she's in her 30s like me, but I'm kind of flexible. I'm not really into high-school-aged main characters anymore, though (but there are exceptions when it's a unique situation--such as in Cinder). I like some romance, but I don't want it to be the entire topic--a little goes a long way with me. I like happyish endings. I don't mind an unlikely situation, but I don't want super cheesy lines and completely unrealistic reactions. Mysteries are fun sometimes.

Authors I've really enjoyed lately:

Mary Kay Andrews
Sophie Kinsella
Beth Harbison
Emily Giffin
Sarah Strohmeyer
Kristen Heitzmann
Rainbow Rowell
Lauren Weisberger

I'm currently reading one by Hester Browne, and it's pretty good so far.

Authors I've tried but am not really in the mood for, in case you're going to suggest them: Jennifer Weiner, Mary Stewart, Cecelia Ahern (actually I have never made it through a book of hers--so boring!), Elizabeth Peters, Elizabeth Adler, Dorothea Benton Frank.

I loooove audiobooks and don't put in a lot of time reading book-books, so I'm looking for suggestions of authors who have audio of some books available. I'm open to Christian and non, provided the Christian isn't totally corny, and the non isn't full of sex scenes.

So...have I been too specific, or do some of you have some ideas for me? :)
