Book Blogger Hop! (3)

It's time again for the weekly Book Blogger Hop hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books!  The question this week is:
Book Blogger Hop

Tell us about the book you are currently reading!






I am currently reading two books:

Fallen by Lauren Kate
(description from Goodreads)

There’s something achingly familiar about Daniel Grigori.
Mysterious and aloof, he captures Luce Price’s attention from the moment she sees him on her first day at the Sword & Cross boarding school in sultry Savannah, Georgia. He’s the one bright spot in a place where cell phones are forbidden, the other students are all screw-ups, and security cameras watch every move.
Even though Daniel wants nothing to do with Luce–and goes out of his way to make that very clear–she can’t let it go. Drawn to him like a moth to a flame, she has to find out what Daniel is so desperate to keep secret . . . even if it kills her.
 
I absolutely LOVE this book so far.  I'm a little more than halfway through it, and it's really captivating.  I really want to know how this book ends.  Not that I want it to! :)
 
I am also reading Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
(description from Goodreads)
 
This beautifully written, heartfelt memoir touched a nerve among both readers and reviewers. Elizabeth Gilbert tells how she made the difficult choice to leave behind all the trappings of modern American success (marriage, house in the country, career) and find, instead, what she truly wanted from life. Setting out for a year to study three different aspects of her nature amid three different cultures, Gilbert explored the art of pleasure in Italy and the art of devotion in India, and then a balance between the two on the Indonesian island of Bali. By turns rapturous and rueful, this wise and funny author (whom Booklist calls "Anne Lamott’s hip, yoga- practicing, footloose younger sister") is poised to garner yet more adoring fans.
 
This is possibly one of the best books I have ever read!  I am reading this for an online book club, and am two thirds through.  I have connected with the author so much that I may even make this my first re-read! :)

  10. I've heard great things about FALLEN. I'm currently reading THE TENSION OF OPPOSITES by Kristina McBride. It's a powerful, moving book and I've just started! It's about a girl who's best friend is kidnapped, then returns home.

  11. Yes it's Monday Night! Since I'm in here watching WWE Monday Night - I thought I would visit the websites I didn't get to this weekend.

    Plus I would like to get you saved in my google-reader before I miss anymore posts.

    Blessed Be ~ Tresa
