December Books...

Just one book again for the month of December! (But I've already started AND finished one book in January!)

My book club read Water for Elephants this round and I loved it! It's a quick read, a page turner, and an interest keeper! I went into it knowing nothing about the book and quickly got caught up in the story! The entire story centers around a circus and is set in the 1930s (I think...). The book follows Jacob, an almost-veterinarian (almost because he dropped out after the death of his parents) as he hops a circus train and is thrown into the craziness (and drama!) that is a circus! His story is woven in with another character, Marlena, who is an act in the circus, and her husband, August.

Water for Elephants: A Novel

Please, please, please read this book if you haven't already. It's wonderful!

AND! They're making it into a movie with Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson. I can't wait!
