Quest: Reading in French

I haven't mentioned this before, but I decided to start reading more in French. Broaden my horizons and set a good example for the girls, etc. For my first attempt, earlier this summer I chose Les petits secrets d'Emma, de Sophie Kinsella (Auteur), Daphné Bernard (Traduction) .... which funnily enough is listed as Number 4 on the best-seller list on Amazon.fr! As you can see it is a translation of chick-lit queen Sophie Kinsella. Mais tant mieux pour moi! It is a totally enjoyable romp of a book and I'm enjoying it all the more because, despite the fact that it is absolute froth, I'm reading it in French.

Now I am looking for my next French read....frothy or not. Any recommendations?
