Default Book suggestions?

I need a new varitey of books to read. I just finished a book by nicholas sparks and one by kristin hannah and I really want to get away from those type of books. For the most part I enjoy them, but I feel like it's the same old thing all of the time.

Here are a few of the books I've read and really enjoyed lately:
The Help
Princess Academy
The Book Thief
Nothing To Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea
The Heretics Daughter

Can anyone give me a few different authors or books to check out? I don't care for fantasy type books or romance - I don't want any sex or foul language.

THANKS in advance!!!

I'm reading Murder of a Bookstore Babe by Denise Swanson. I loved that it was about books. So far it is very good and was difficult to make myself put it down to go to bed last night.

She has a whole series of Murder books, but this is the first I've read.

oooh that sounds good - I'll have to look into those books! I haven't read too many mysteries, but as long as they aren't too scary I'm interested. (I'm a HUGE wuss and have issues with scary books )

I just finished the first book in the series The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson. The begining was a bit slow but then I couldn't put it down. I am headed to the library this afternoon to pick up the next book!
