You've probably seen it out in bookstores, it is a #1 NY Times Bestseller, but now you can take my word for it, too (basically, I like a wide range of books as long as it's not The Canterbury Tales. Don't mean to offend all the Chaucerian followers.):
Speaking of great books being turned into films, Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen is set to be released April 2011.
This book was a little more "romantic" than The Help but equally intriguing. It's starring Reese and Rob Patz, which make for an interesting real-life couple (considering their age difference, Reese = 34 and Rob = 23!) but I just watched the trailer, and it looked pretty good. As long as the screenwriters stuck to Gruen's entertaining plot, the movie should turn out great!
And, since we're on the subject of love stories, Emily Giffin's Something Borrowed is also being turned into a movie with Ginnifer Goodwin and Kate Hudson. This is Giffin's first of 5 novels (yes, i've read them all) but definitely read it before you see it - only if you're into Chick Flicks though!
Happy Reading, Happy Monday :)
