Book Club starts FEB 1, 2010. We will be reading The Help, by Kathryn Stockett. Feel free to pick the book and join us.
I just completed The Quickie, by James Patterson. I was a bit hesitant to read this book as I'm not one for murder mystery type books. I have to admit I was into the book in the beginning, then in the middle not so much. I forced myself to continue reading and I have to say that this book surprised me. I didn't think it was as great as everyone portrayed it to be, however the ending really made the book. There were a lot of twists to the book, however it started to become a bit predictable, and left you wondering what was going to happen next. I was expecting it for some reason to be a choppy read, because of all the twists I was told this book takes. I actually found it a smooth easy quick read. I actually think this would make a great movie.
Have you read it? What was your take on the book?
So I'm going to attempt something I've never done before. Read two books at one time. OH YEAH! I will be reading The Help along side, Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. I think I could use a little inspiration these days. It's been raining for 10 days straight and I need a pick me up. I love the rain, but this dark gloominess that is my world needs a bit of sunshine.
What are you reading? Will you be joining me in reading either of these two books?
