I just finished The Help by Kathryn Stockett and loved it! I have never been one to scan the best sellers list for books to read but when I heard all the great reviews for this book then I figured I needed to check it out. So I put my name on the waiting list at the library and was so excited when they called and said it was waiting on me. I will say that this books starts off slow and it took me a while to get into it. It also took me longer to read then most books this size but its only because its such a heavy subject that I didn't want to miss a word. I would highly recommend it to any book lover.
I just started Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen and it is very good so far. I will review it soon.
