book recommendations

i got so many great book recommendations the other day- thank you! i wrote them all down and took the list to the library and i thought you might be interested in what i'm reading now. i narrowed it down based on what was available at the library that day {and some personal choice too, of course}

currently reading: people of the book by geraldine brooks 
{over half done and loving it}
on standby: on beauty by zadie smith
water for elephants by sara gruen
the corrections by jonathan franzen

and to return the favor, here are a couple of my personal recommendations:
empire falls by richard russo
flight by sherman alexi


  1. eek! i'm reading empire falls right now - and boy, is it getting good!!

    you're going to love water for elephants, i promise.

  2. i just bought 'People of the Book' not too long ago. Haven't started it yet, though. Let me know how it is. :)

  3. I always love book suggestions! Thanks!

    Stopping in from SITS.

  4. I was just thinking how nice it would be to join a book group. If only there were more hours in the day...

  5. We love a good book over at French Picnic! Thanks for sharing your finds. :)

  6. I am not really reading anything right now. I am going though one of those "not reading" fazes. But when I come out of it I will keep your suggestions in mind. :)

  7. oh thankyouuuu i love book recommendations and have been needing some lately
