1. Room by Emma Donoghue- I enjoyed this book, especially seeing how a Mother could keep a child entertained in such a small space for so long. A must read, in my opinion.
2. Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen- I dislike the circus to the point where I will not entertain the idea of doing a circus unit in my classroom. Still, a friend suggested that I read it. It was hard for me to read some sections, but overall I did enjoy the book. It still makes me dislike the circus.
Currently I am reading Unsweetined by Jodie Sweetin. I am about halfway through. I wasn't expecting to enjoy it, but she is a good writer and it flows really well.
