Cats and books just go so well together, don't they?
And I have so much to say! Heh.
I'm reading 'Second Chance' by Picoult. I read one of her books, expecting not to like it, and fell in love with the way she writes, and how her stories have plots that twist and are completely unexpected.
I just finished 'A Crack in the Edge of the World: America and the Great California Earthquake' by Simon Winchester. It was very, very detailed, with all sorts of geography as well as socialital impact. It seemed to drag at times, but was very informative.
I also just finished 'Eat Pray Love' by by Elizabeth Gilbert. This book follows a woman across Italy, India and Indonesia after her divorce. I LOVE travelogues (I'm quite proud of my ever-expanding collection
), and I'm interested in nearly everything about India (I worked there for six months), so this book was very close to my interest. It was written well, making it a fast, easy read. Didn't go into depth as much as I'd like as far as her reactions to the cultures, but was definately entertaining.
Up next to read:
'Alive' by Piers Paul Read. This is the story of the sports team from South America that crashed into a mountain, and some of them who survived for 72 days before being rescued.
'Forever' - Pete Hamill. This is a book I picked up on one of my famous, spend all my grocery money at the bookstore, extravaganza. The back cover describes it as a man who comes to New York in 1740, and is granted immortality as long as he stays on the island of Manhattens, and goes through to present day.
'Shantaram' - Gregory Davis Roberts. A reread, and another book set in India.
I love recommendations, so throw some my way! I read all genres, and don't really have a favorite, and I'm a sucker for detail in writing.
