Ive been reading...

I recently finished Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen and I loved it. I enjoyed it from beginning to end and can't wait to watch the film version next year. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for an interesting, superbly written read.
* Note: Sara Gruen's new book, Ape House, is coming out next month in USA. 

I have just started reading Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. Ive been wanting to read this book for over a year or two , but when so many people started to read it (and talk to me about it) and there was so much hype about it - I decided to read it at another stage of my life or not at all (i don't know why, its just how i felt at the time). Anyways, so here I am starting to read it on the week that the Eat, Pray, Love film is released in US cinemas (and no, I wont see the film until I finish the book). I have not read very much yet, but so far I am really enjoying it (i finally get why everyone has been raving about it). I absolutely adore Gilbert's style of writing. I will keep you posted on what I think of the book.

What are you reading right now? do share...

Actually just starting Eat, Pray, Love. Just finished "A Reliable Wife"- Robert Goolrich, which was ok. reminded me alot of that movie Original Sin with Antonio Banderas and Angie Jolie.

I have just finished reading 'The Voluptuous Delights of Peanut Butter & Jam' by Lauren Liebenberg and it was brilliant. The story of Nyree and her sister Cia growing up on a farm in the later 1970's in the then Rhodesia. What an amazing writer and nominated for the Orange Prize for New Writers.Usually anything with a Booker or Orange prize mention is worth reading. This blog is a new discoveyr and I am so glad I discovered it.
