Hey y'all! Happy Wednesday! (I'm back!)
I didn't get to post about our March/April Book Club yet, so here we go.
For March we all read Water For Elephants by Sara Gruen. I'm not sure how everyone else felt about it yet because we decided to wait and have our March meeting in April when the Water For Elephants movie comes out. This means April will be a double whammy and we'll have not one, but TWO books to read and talk about. :)
I can only tell you how much I loved, loved, loved Water For Elephants. Once I was past the third chapter I couldn't put the book down and was instantly transformed into a wonderful world of elephants, circus acts, speakeasy's and tales from life on the train as the main character traveled with the touring circus. I can not wait to see the movie (I love Reese!) and compare the two.
I'm thinking maybe we should even make our meeting food/beverage circus themed...what do y'all think?
For April I have selected Wench by Dolen Perkins-Valdez. I recently read a review of this book was very intrigued by the description. I love history (especially American history) and have always loved to read period pieces. I don't know much about this book beyond the description, but I do hope it's good because after reading Water For Elephants, Wench certainly has a lot to live up to in order to keep my attention.
Have any of you read Water For Elephants or Wench? What did you think?
