    The City of Devi- Manil Suri.

    I just finished it. I recommend it highly. Love, Mumbai on the brink of nuclear annihilation, a touch of Bollywood. Very witty, sweet and sad.

    I started Lisa Scottoline's "Don't Go" yesterday, and also "Beautiful Creatures," the first in a YA series, after seeing the movie.

    Is it the unedited version, with all the sexual references and critiques of her parents' marriage?? I have that version. It changes her in my eyes, but for the better. More human and less saintlike.

    OK, so plowed through the YA "Beautiful Creatures" series, read a couple of beah oriented stories while out of town, and now have fallen in to the YA "City of Bones" Immortal Creatures series. Think Clary could give Katniss a run for her money.

    Angels and Demons, the prequel to The DaVinci Code. I loved The DaVinci code because it required a bit more thought than most suspense/mysteries. I loved the art references and enjoyed looking up some of the paintings I wasn't familiar with. So far A&D is cut from a similar cloth but it's interesting 10 chapters in.

    I've read all of Brown's books and this one is probably my favorite.

    Yes, it was the unedited version. It definitely gives a more rounded, realistic view of her.

    I finished The Orphan Master's Son. Excellent. Depressing (it's set in North Korea), but excellent.

    Also read The Burgess Boys by Elizabeth Strout (she of Olive Kitteridge fame). Forgettable, predictable, weak plot.

    Currently reading, Russel Brand's bio, My Booky Wook. Although his wordplay is amusing, I'm a bit bored reading it. He is very honest, but it feels like he takes you through every hour of his life. Plodding.

    If you like the ya stuff, read the Divergent series. I like it a lot and the movie has already been filmed.
