Book Club-November (Edited 11/12/12 04:27PM by Jess)
So I was told today that it is my turn to pick three books for everyone to vote on. I don't know if anyone will even like these choices, but I'm gonna gonna give it a shot...

The Night Circus~Erin Morgenstern

The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway: a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them both, this is a game in which only one can be left standing. Despite the high stakes, Celia and Marco soon tumble headfirst into love, setting off a domino effect of dangerous consequences, and leaving the lives of everyone, from the performers to the patrons, hanging in the balance.

Beautiful Creatures~Kami Garcia

Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she's struggling to conceal her power, and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.

Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town's oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.

In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.

Divergent~Veronica Roth
In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

I got a chance to read Night Circus (I won a copy online last year)   I enjoyed it, and my two younger children did as well.   Very rich and descriptive scenes. 

Divergent sounds interesting.

Divergent is similar to Hunger Games, but different enough to be fun. I've read it already though, so I'm voting on a different one laugh (I'll probably read them both...been itching for new reading material)

I've got hold requests on both Divergent and Beautiful Creatures at the library.  Just started reading Abraham Lincoln:  Vampire Hunter.  I'm glad I am finally coming upon some time to read for pleasure.

Once I got into it, I really enjoyed it. I'm on the 2nd book now - it's kind of weird, but I'm loving the history integrated in with some pretty accurate occult stuff. It's a pretty quick read.

I just put the 2nd book on my "reserve" list at the library (which is growing exponentially based on recommendations from here and on other social network sites).  I'm glad I have a few free weeks on my hands.
