We had book club last night and I didn't get home until way too late (unfortunately WAY too late is now 11 pm for me) to finish a post I'd started earlier.
I finished these two books this week (although not for book club). I would definitely recommend The Secret Life of Bees. I'm really excited to see the movie- but since I'd already seen previews I couldn't shake the idea that Lily (the main character) looked/spoke like Dakota Fanning. I wish the book had ended a little sooner and I got a tad bored for a few pages- but overall I enjoyed it.
It was so strange to me that these books were written by the same author. They are SO different in every way imaginable.
I would NOT recommend The Mermaid Chair. ew. I really really didn't like it at all. It was all about a woman who has an affair with a Monk. ew. I hated the premise and the theme.
I'm starting the book Ghost Story by Peter Straub- anybody read it?
