I love a good story. As I mentioned above, i seem to have an affinity for circus theme books. I rarely buy books - I'm an avid library-visitor.
Lamb by Christopher Moore: the bittersweet, irreverent, and hilarious story of Jesus' best friend, Biff. World War Z by Max Brooks: yes it's about zombies, but the parallels to our current world are chilling. 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami: one of my favorite authors, this guy is the MASTER of tone. Sadly, this book was a bit of a miss for me as I like his other books better. The Final Confession of Mabel Stark: granted, I read this one awhile ago, but I love any books that have a circus theme (The Night Circus, Circus in Winter, Geek Love, Carter Beats the Devil (not technically circus) etc). At the moment I'm ready Sacre Bleu, also by Christopher Moore, and so far so good.
I've been away from the club for a bit, but looking forward to seeing all of you again soon!
