This morning I finished Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen. I absolutely loved it. It was one of those reads where you can't read it fast enough because you want to know what is going to happen, but you want to go slowly because you don't ever want it to end.
I bought it a while back on clearance and have been hesitating to read it for some reason. I am so glad I did. Even though I am not a big top supporter I have a sense of wonderment about the circus. It seems like something magical, until you get below the surface. The book delves into that grit below the surface of the circus in the 30's, but also into unconditional love, madness, friendship and adventure. I just can't say enough good things. I think I am going to have to find out what else Sara Gruen has written so I can read those books as well.
What are you reading?
P.S. I have a little crush on this picture. I wish I had a wall that was just like that. :)
I found the pic on weheartit.
Happy Saturday! I am going to watch a movie and sew some crafts.
