The Blind Assassin

This book was so good! All the different levels of the story were intriguing and the characters were superb. This was probably my best read in quite a long while. I think everyone should read this one - especially anyone looking to get completely drawn into a great novel.

I just finished The Devil Wears Prada thinking it would be a fun fluffy read. It was an easy read but I didn't enjoy it nearly as much as I thought I would. It felt a little predictable. And while fashion is fun - reading about it doesn't even come close to looking at it. It was pretty eh in my book. Next up is Memoirs of a Geisha. My sister loves it, and she and I usually share the same taste in books. (And no - I haven't seen either of the movies made out of the previously mentioned books. I hate watching a movie before I've read the book - even if it just makes me whiny about what gets left out. I like forming my own picture of the characters -= not Hollywood's versions).
