January Reads!

Hi all!

So I like the thought of this being more of a healthy living and my life blog. So that’s what it’s going to be from now on. You won’t just see what I eat and do at the gym every day, although that will still be a part of this new direction. I have 3 readers I don’t even know why I feel the need to explain myself every post haha. Anyways, anyone who knows me knows I am obsessed with the blog PBFingers and every month she picks a book for the book club. I have been through almost every show on On Demand I like reading a lot so I decided that for as long as I can I will try to read the books she posts every month. That may become tricky when school starts back up again since I am loaded with senior level classes this semester and no easy classes, but I am going to try!

This months pick that I actually voted for was The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. Here’s the amazon link if any of my handful of readers would like to join along http://www.amazon.com/Night-Circus-Erin-Morgenstern/dp/0385534639/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1325974573&sr=8-1. Anyways, on February 1st I am going to post my review and would love any comments that you guys have if you read the book. She will also post her review and you can post your comments in her comments section as well.

Basically the book is about two people who fall in love while still being competitors at this circus that creepily just pops into town without warning. Yes, that is my synposis. No it’s not very good so let me put the real one up. 😉

This is the excerpt from Amazon: The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway—a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them, this is a game in which only one can be left standing, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will. Despite themselves, however, Celia and Marco tumble headfirst into love—a deep, magical love that makes the lights flicker and the room grow warm whenever they so much as brush hands.

True love or not, the game must play out, and the fates of everyone involved, from the cast of extraordinary circus per­formers to the patrons, hang in the balance, suspended as precariously as the daring acrobats overhead.

So I hope someone reads along if not keep an eye for the review and maybe that will spark you to read it or light it on fire depending on if it’s good or not! =]
