I have been reading books written by Donna VanLiere. She's a new to me author. I read her book The Good Dream and really liked it. 

I found a couple more books at my library. I read A Christmas Secret and now I am reading The Christmas Promise. I think it's a whole series but I am not reading them in order, lol.

When I am finished with this one I have November Hunt by Jess Lourey waiting, haven't read anything by this authour yet.

No, Water for Elephants was written by Sara Gruen. I loved that book, the story was great and well written.

I am also a huge Jodi P. fan. My absolute favorite by her is 19 minutes~ it was so good, I felt so sad for the character who was bullied through the years.

Quoting courtneyann29:

Is Water for Elephants a Jodi Picoult?  I love her too.  I always have to take a break after reading her books...they are so good, but I need to squeeze in some fluff reading afterwards. lol  The last one I read was 19 Minutes.  It's so good, you don't want to put it down, but at the same time..you want to stop reading because you can't imagine what comes next.  I've got my mom hooked on her books, now. :)

Quoting bhow:

Read it, loved it!  I know one I will not ever forget is 'water for elephant's'.  It was quite graphic and disturbing.  I didn't know what to think about some of it.  Our 12 yr. old loves elephants and she asked me about reading it.  I was stuttering trying to explain to her way she was not allowed to read it now, and might not ever want to.  Maybe it's just me, IDK.  Most things don't bother me but that book did.

Quoting cafay:



Quoting bhow: I love Jodi! She moves me. I can cry, get angry,and laugh all in one book.They are interesting, every one of them. Even if sometimes, they are too deep!My sisters Keeper made me cry  for days afterward. My husband thought I was nuts for reading something that would make me cry!

I read them so fast I can't remember one title from another.  Just finished a Jodi Picoult.  Sorry.

Quoting bhow: I havent read that one, and from the way you speak, I'm not sure I want to. Are they mean to the elephants? If its about or contains animal cruelty, I wont read it. Ican't go there!
