I have this one on my list too, my sis-in-law bought it for me for my birthday...I can't wait to get it started because I have heard so many great things about it. I hope you really enjoy it.

I'm loving it so far Bethany - stayed up late last night reading it so feeling a little tired now (but worth it!).

Thanks Trish - I read a bit more of the book last night and am still really enjoying it. The characters just seem so rich and well written - amazing writing! What challenge book are you reading at the moment? I still need one more for my list.

Actually, I just used The Robber Bride (Canada) for the challenge--and my first read was A Long Way Gone (Sierra Leone). So far I'm really enjoying this challenge! I think I'll read Half of a Yellow Sun next month...?

Thanks for coming by. :)
