Okay, I work in a library and I hardly ever read fiction...most times I can't get past the first page without yawning. I don't like suspense, mysteries, chick lit or historical fiction...
I tell the patrons when they ask me to suggest fiction that I can't help them..I only read comic books and the backs of cereal boxes.. :p most patrons know I am kidding...I have the most fun with the patrons who are so uptight they think I am serious.
BTW, I mostly read children's books and non-fiction.

anyway...I haven't read a novel in over a year. I am in tech services and process all the incoming materials and this one just caught my eye..
took it home and I am GLUED...stayed up last night past 11pm reading which I never do. Found time this afternoon to read more..wonderful story, beautifully written. The way I judge whether I like a book is that if I am reading and the story is so compelling and the author can take me right to that place in my mind, so much so I forget that I am actually reading...hours go by...
this is that kind of book for me. If you read it, let me know what you think.
The God of Animals by Aryn Kyle
here is what Amazon had to say about it..I haven't searched for any other reviews:
The Significant Seven Spotlight Title, March 2007: Aryn Kyle's haunting coming-of-age novel is the kind of book that you want to share with everyone you know. Twelve-year-old Alice Winston is growing up fast on her father's run-down horse ranch--coping with the death of a classmate and the absence of her older sister (who ran off with a rodeo cowboy), trying to understand her depressed and bedridden mother, and attempting to earn the love and admiration of her reticent, weary father. Lyrical, powerful, and unforgettable, The God of Animals is our must-read, must-own, must-share book for March. --Daphne Durham

Molly, I'll get on that for my next book club selection.

I'm reading Kite Runner, a story about a boy from Afghanistan, and I love it!
