Water for Elephants
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen is a fantastic book; I am so excited for the movie to come to the big screen! (the book has me talking in their terms now) It's a historical novel about a young college student Jacob Jankowski. (later to be played by Robert Pattinson- yum!) He's 23 and preparing for his finals as a Cornell University vet student. Because of events (I won't spoil it for you) he runs away and joins a traveling circus. There's drama, action, romance...it's great. Read it. Reese Witherspoon will play the leading lady; however, as I was reading I imagined Rachel McAdams playing her part. So, we shall see how that turns out. There is some language and vulgarity, but just enough to make it interesting! I can't wait for a circus to come to town!
