Water for Elephants

i'm late to this party but my word this was an amazing book.

its unfortunate we already had baby h's name picked out because i loved the main character, marlena so much i would have named my daughter after her. like really. loved her.

i say this a lot but you absolutely MUST read this book. i'm so so so excited to see the movie this weekend (comes out friday). i saw reese witherspoon on the CBS morning show this morning and she looked adorable as always. perfect casting for marlena.

its an easy read- i finished it in 3 days by the pool in kauai (ahhh take me back!) and loved every. single. page.



  1. you have inspired me to read the book :) thanks girl!!

  2. OMG I read it in the Bahamas last week, it seriously took me a day and part of a morning... I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN. I haven't been so thoroughly happy and satisfied with an ending in so long :)

  3. I absolutely loved this book as well!!! I'm just hoping the movie does it justice

  4. ACK! I really wanted to read this before I saw the movie. But I have a feeling I'll just be watching the movie. Thanks for the quick review!

  5. such a great book! trying to convince they boy to take me to the movie tomorrow! :)
