I can't believe that we are going to read a book by same author that has written "Practical Magic" and one of my favourite movies. I so much enjoy watching "Practical Magic", that when I got the book, I couldn't contained myself from skipping to find any of my favourite parts which was in the movie. Of couse, I feel bad for not reading each page, so, I'm getting the book again from the library on Tuesday. Is "Skylight Confessions" a contuine to "Practical Magic"? Can't wait to start reading it and chat with other people about it.
Anyone else read the sample of the above book featured in Suzanne's giveaway - sounds to be a great read - have that one on hold at library as well - also the poems she featured in another book giveaway - so great - she shares so many great and various things with us - Thanks Suzanne -
Yes, I read the excerpt of "Water for Elephants." I would like to read the book. It sounds very interesting. I love stories that look back at a life and the consequences of choices made in youth. My friend finished reading the book and recommended it to several of her friends. She thoroughly enjoyed it.
I have to add my message to Doris's. Suzanne provides such enrichment to my reading life with her fiction and non fiction selections. I acknowledged my appreciation during National Libray Week by sending an e-mail to my local librarians whose cheerful reminders to pick up a reserved book brighten my day. The books on reserve are often ones from Suzanne's chapter a day selections. But it was Suzanne's reminder that prompted my e-mail. I had the added pleasure of winning the poetry book give-a-way. I'm anxiously awaiting its arrival. Thanks Suzanne, for all you do for your reading public
I must say this week's choice is intriguing. I have read Alice Hoffman before, and it really didn't appeal to me. This novel, however, has definitely got me interested. I can easily picture and feel that mystical attraction that Arlie and John feel, and at the end of today's entry, I can understand exactly how when you wake up from a dream you see the flaws in your surroundings. I want to know what happens now.
Great choice, will check it out at the library. Absolutely.
I just got this book from he library today. (I have a stack of fifteen right now, but this is a two week loan so I'll have to get to it soon!) and I am excited. I loved practical majick. and I wonder how this author writes a novel. Also, I read "Water for Elephants" when it came out several months ago and I just loved it even though circuses usually scare me in that "irrational fear" kind of way. The focus is more on the characters and their development than the circus aspect. And I loved the surprise twist plot arc around the elephant. The first scene was confusing ( I read it twice and still did not understand something), but the plot twist gives the story greater depth.
