morgan's book corner.

So it's that time again my friends! I need your book recommendations. Currently I'm reading Water for Elephants {for a second time}. It's not often that I read a book twice but this book is that good. 

With the movie coming out, starring Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson, I thought it was the perfect time to re-read and let me tell you. It's just as good the second time.
Speaking of the movie.... did anyone see the new Vanity Fair cover? I'm not a die hard Robert Pattinson fan but this cover completely catches my eye.

So....whatcha got for me? What books should I add to my library for the spring?
Thanks loves!

I just read Jeannette Wells' "The Glass Castle" and "Half Broke Horeses"... Loved them!!!

Dragon Tattoo Books are a must if you haven't read them yet....

Oh I can't wait to read this book, and I'm really excited there's a movie coming out based on it!

I'm plowing my way through some classics on a 30-before-30 list. I just wrapped up "Lord of the Flies" and now I'm diving into the second half of "David Copperfield" (I had to return it to the library before I could finish).

That cover is pretty much an eyecatcher. Seriously, an alligator?! Crazy. Or is it a crocodile? Either way it's a novelty for sure. I haven't heard of "Water for Elephants", but now it's on my reading list! Anyways, I can't believe how perfect your blog looks. I'm very jealous, and my jealousy has made me your newest follower. ;)

I loved water for elephants too! I just read 'unbroken' - a true story that is both amazing and unthinkable. I highly recommend. it is hard to read at times (p.o.w war story...) but at the same time it is very uplifting. I love good suggestions!

PS: Thanks for coming to see me, lady! You are fantastic. :D

I'm reading "Little Bee: A Novel" by
Chris Cleave

Have you read it? If not I can't tell you what its about, the author says so...seriously. I was in love with it after the first paragraph, it's really good. :-)

I've been meaning to pick up Water for Elephants as soon as my semester is over - I've heard great things about it!

If you haven't read The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton it's a great fiction; check out my book list on my blog: under the heading Books

I also just finished The Friday Night Knitting Club, a great sappy happy story that make you just wanna be part of it.

Those are the two that just popped into my head but I have TONNES more!

Love your blog!

so glad i discovered your blog because i love chatting about books! water for elephants IS so good. i would recommend Cutting for Stone if you're OK with a bit of doctor-speak.
hope you're having a great weekend!

I LOVED THIS BOOK! Seriously. I can't wait for the movie! :) I just blogged about a book I just finished that I loved. Read that one!

Carol {Everyday Delights} said...

I've heard this book was great! I just finished The Help and thats another good one you should check out!

I of course ADORE RPattz and will be seeing this movie because of him. And because I have heard nothing but good things about the book.
I am still trying to get back to reading for fun... so darn hard though. I read ALL day and it ruins it for me when I finally get home.

ha ha I was just going to recommend Alive I Have Been and I see it under this post - lol! Another good read is Oogy (about a dog) and The Hunger Games - currently reading this and loving it! I really want to read the book you are reading right now!
