Well so far I'm NOT liking this book..

The Road, it has an IMO awful writing style and after 43 pages, I still dont know whats going on, there is no plot and no nothing....

So hubby and I went to Barnes and Noble today to get books for our vacation.. this is what I got:

Salem Falls by Jodi Picoult
walking in circles before lying down by Merrill Markoe
Fall on Your Knees by Ann-Marie MacDonald
Plain Truth by Jodi Picoult
the namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini

And hubby and I are going to read Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah together again.

I agree. I'm not a fan of the writing style at all. I only gave it 15 pages before putting it down.

In the past 10 days I read:

Adventures of a Shopaholic (hey...I was in Hawaii...needed a beach book!)

Little Earthquakes by Jennifer Weiner

Choke by Chuck Palahniuk


Loved them all...however I have a feeling I may not be getting everything I was supposed to from 'Choke'. Not sure if I was in the best mindset to be reading it, but it was still great!

For school I'm reading Nectar in a Sieve by Kamala Markandaya. For a school book it's really not that bad, nice and short, though a bit depressing.

And I also just started reading Merle's Door by Ted Kerasote last night. I'm only one chapter into it but it seems good so far.

Oo! I just got a new book called The Theory of Clouds by Stephane Audeguy. It was in the new author section at Barnes and Noble. It's pretty good so far.
