Water for Elephants

On monday I bought the book "Water for Elephants" by Sara Gruen, I finished the book Friday night.

It. Was. Fabulous.
 I couldn't put it down.

The story is written from the perspective of Jacob Jankowski, an old man who is reflecting back on his days as a young man in the circus during the great depression era.   It's a wonderful story that touches on the difficulties of the time, the complexities of the circus, and his impossible love for the ring master's wife.  This book has everything: action, romance, even murder.

If you haven't read it, go get it today, I promise you won't be able to put it down! 

Plus... the movie comes out soon, starring Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon.  

I can't wait to see it!  View the trailer below.

Oh.... and don't forget about my giveaway.
