I just ordered a few new books –yay!
1) Prep – Curtis Sittenfield
I just finished reading another book by this author (thanks Halie!): it’s called American Wife and it’s loosely based on the life of a well-known political figure. For someone who detests politics, I have to say, I really enjoyed the story. I’m still trying to figure how much of the story is fictional, but regardless, it does make you think twice about the famous/public people you *think you know. It’s worth reading – I liked it.
2) Anna Karenina – Leo Tolstoy
I did my high school senior thesis on Anna Karenina and I’m embarrassed to admit that I don’t remember very much of it (although I DO remember loving it). I’ve been wanting to reread it for years. I can’t wait. I hope I’m not disappointed.
3) The Unnamed – Joshua Ferris
This is a bookclub book. And when I say “bookclub”, I mean getting together with a group of friends so we can drink, catch up and not discuss the book. 🙂 LOVE IT!
