Kristen: 2 of 15

Title: Water for Elephants
Author: Sara Gruen
Pages: 350
Rating: ****

So I set a mini goal (that I really didn't think I'd actually achieve) of completing two books before the end of January.  I  started book #2 on Thursday night, and even in the midst of a rather busy weekend, I got so wrapped up in the darn thing that i couldn't put it down.  When I reached the end I couldn't help but wish for more.

This was a great story and I'm looking forward movie that's coming soon.  The book follows the Depression-era circus life, from the perspective of it's main character.  The author did her homework, studying historic circus life and beautifully weaved truth into her work of fiction.

Thanks to my sis for recommending this one to me.  It was well worth the read.
