The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides. Bought it because the summary on the back made it sound like it was going to be this almost Jane Austen-esque tale set in the college years circa 1982. And the front quote had a Talking Heads lyric. And it was "buy one, get one half off" and I needed to read something.
About halfway in and I don't hate it, but I don't like how bogged down with the little details about the characters he seems to like to describe. Could be because religious studies isn't really my bag and it is for one of the character's. Ad nauseum. It seems to not be getting the greatest of reviews but I"ll finish it.
and then maybe I should write the damn book I thought I was going to be reading.
Just read The Hunger Games. Was depressed for 2 days after :/

The Street Sweeper- Elliot Perlman. A black janitor and an elderly Auschwitz survivor's freindship. I really enjoyed it.
All of God's children are not beautiful. Most of God's children are, in fact, barely presentable.

The chick who wrote the Twilight books should be ashamed. She doesn't come across as a bright, strong woman in interviews so it's no surprise Bella is a completely unlikable, weak, vapid bore.
I started Hunger Games yesterday. It's shocking how fast it sucks you in and the pacing is great. It's been ages since I've read a book that I didn't want to put down.
I'm probably just talking out my ass right now. I wish I had read this when I was taking cell biology. I need a damn refresher so the explanation pages are useful.
I hear the series is getting progressively worse, this being the worst yet. I dont know. I have yet to get past the second book.
