Some friends and I are starting a book club so let me know if you want in on it (and are someone I know and aren't just a creepy online stalker type). I just finished The Night Circus. I don't want to influence anyone so I won't tell you much about what I thought of it other than it was a good read but I didn't enjoy the ending. Jeanne, I'm not sure if you'll like it or not. It had some non-realistic fantasty elements that I don't know if you would enjoy.
This will be the next book I read. Yes, I know it was a movie but I didn't watch it. I'm a little worried that it will be too graphic for me because I generally don't enjoy novels about children that are murdered/raped/molested/anything else crappy like that. I hear the "bad scenes" are tasteful. We'll see how it goes, though.
Let me know if you have any other good reads for me. I'll tell you up front that I don't really like Jodi Picoult (excessive cognitive dissonance) or Nicholas Sparks (feels like he tries to jerk your emotions around in a weird, artificial way) or VC Andrews (too incesty). I'm not a big chick lit person either but I can do it sometimes. I enjoy the Stephanie Plum series but I would say this is the exception and not the rule. My friend, Kortney, suggested The Shack a while ago which I still haven't read yet but it's on my mental to-read list.
