2011 so far: Seattle skylines, circus tents, London shops and Paris

okay so not actually in person, but in books
it's official I have had my nose in a book the whole year
day 27 of the new year and I started my 4th book
that's a lot for me
i am a slow reader.
so far i have loved them all.


30 year old love story fanatic mormon girl finds loves in an unusual way.

So much more than circus life during the Great Depression.
 But I don't want to give anything away, just read it.
But warning you are going to want a pet elephant after.

As long as Sophie Kinsella writes about Becky Bloomwood I will read it.
I laughed the whole way though it.


I am only on page 19 but I have a feeling that I am going to like it.
Yes it is true that not a single one of these books is on "the list", i will get there. And I have crossed a few off "the list" The Other Boleyn girl:check, Pride and Prejudice:check, 1776:check, The hungry games series:check. And a few others off the list. check.check.check


I also need to add a few to the list off the top of my head: World War Z, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, The Uglies series, Son of a Witch, Frankenstein, finish Confessions of Georgia Nicholson books.... okay new list coming soon. Get your suggestions in now.






I need a book club.
Are there such thing as online book clubs?

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is one of my very FAVORITE books ever. Definitely a must read. Safran Foer's wife, Nicole Krauss wrote a book called The History of Love that is also really great.

I haven't read any books so far this year...should prob start.

Also, have you checked out goodreads.com? I'm a fan.

Oh, oh, oh, I want a book club too! I've already read 5 books this year. Is Water For Elephants really good? Would I like it? I love mystery and detective novels but the mini shopaholic looks good too. Right now I'm reading George Bush's Decision Points and it's pretty good but not a page turner.
