Looking forward to your thoughts on Water for Elephants and Bad Girls Don't Die. I have Water for Elephants on audio and Katie Alender's book is on my wishlist.
Have a great week and happy reading :-)

I think I'm the only person not to have liked Water for Elephants. Maybe I will have to wait for the movie to see if it sways me one way or the other.
Have a great reading week.

Is the audio of Water for Elephants any good? I know people love the book, but the reader can make or break an audio.

I'm anxious for your review on Water for Elephants, I've heard mixed reviews. I must be the only person who hasn't read it yet.
