message 1: by Sherry (new)

Sherry  | 3831 comments only 4 books, but 2 BFB's.

We Are Water- wally lamb- loved it
The Art of Hearing HeartbeatsJan-Philipp Sendker- another really good read
The Goldfinch-donna tartt- it seemed like it took me forever and a day to read this- although i didn't hate this as much as liz did, i didn't really like it. i've read one of tartt's other books and enjoyed it but tried to read another and couldn't finish it because it was so wordy. overall, i liked the story, but don't care for the way she writes. if i wasn't reading it with all of you, i probably wouldn't have finished it.
Sycamore Row-john grisham- a fast read, definitely needed after reading the goldfinch.

Ann (annrumsey) | 15061 comments I was glad to have your thoughts in the discussions of The Goldfinch, Sherry - so I am glad you read it too. I found myself thinking of the book yesterday when the news of Philip Seymour Hoffman's overdose death broke.

Carol/Bonadie (bonadie) | 8302 comments Glad to hear you loved the Wally Lamb, Sherry.

It was so fun to hear everyone's perspective on The Goldfinch, What shall we read next?
