Ashleigh Motbey | 1082 comments Updated!

For anyone wanting to fit in Water for Elephants because of the group read, Sara Gruen has American citizenship, even if she wasn't born there, so it could count for that prompt?

Could also fit with 10 based on my multiple viewings of the movie. Either forcing the elephants/animals to work hard, or the circus owner lacking in foresight of his treatment of the animals. I'm assuming the book will have a similar theme.

Read Mexican Gothic for the Asia/Cicada theme. Really enjoyed this book. It is high on gothic atmosphere, and a slow burn especially for the first half of the book. However, once the action gets going, it really becomes a page turner.
