A Million Little Pieces
Date Posted: 5/21/2009 | Go To Book Page

whether it's true or untrue, this book was one i couldn't put down. Having lived with others in life who are truly addicted to various substances, the way the author described the grip his addictions had on him was a relief. It allowed me to realize that the families and friends of addicts are helpless when it comes to changing a person. This book allowed me insight into a world I never want to experience for myself, yet have always yearned to understand. I had to actuallly close the book a couple times, due to the graphic scenes being described, but after my wave of nausea passed, I picked it back up and finished it.

The Lovely Bones: A Novel
Date Posted: 5/21/2009 | Go To Book Page

Read this book in a couple days, not my all time favorite, but a good read. I haven't ever read anything close when it comes to the storyline, but the idea of those in Heaven watching over us always warms my heart. Should you read it? I don't know. The author deals with several complex real llife issues in the book. Rape, murder, grief, alcoholism, sex, separation. And then there's the supernatural, which I also believe in and that is when Susie re-visits earth.

Water for Elephants: A Novel
Date Posted: 6/2/2009 | Go To Book Page

This book was given to me and it sat on the shelf for a long time, but when I finally took it off the shelf to read it, I couldn't put it down. I probably would have never read it had it not been given to me, but I am so glad that it was! No matter what genre of fiction you read, this book is awesome, and unlike anything I have read before. I enjoyed it immensely. I view the circus as a whole different animal now! THe story teller in the book is 90 year old Jacob, who is now a widow and in an assisted living home. He recollects his first few months in the circus throughout the book, the tradgedy, friendships, the hardships, and the love. Definitely read it. I liked it alot!
