The Lovely Bones

This book is about a girl who has been murdered and lets the reader see through her eyes after she has gone to her heaven. We see what happened during her murder, what happened to her killer, and witness her family and friends dealing with the loss.

I have been reluctant to pick this one up and I just got up the nerve on Monday. Let me tell you, I couldn't put it down. When I finished it Tuesday night, I completely broke down. It really brought on a flood of emotions that I probably needed to get out anyway.

I read that it's being made into a movie now. I'm interested to see how they'll make it work. Ryan Gosling is set to play the girl's father.

    This book was amazing, wasn't it? I read it for my old book club when it first came out. The author has a new novel out that I will probably pick up once it's Christmas break.

    That was such an amazing book, once I started it I didn't want to put it down until I finished it.

    Actually Ryan Gosling dropped out, or was dropped. Stanly Tucci is going to be the neighboor who murders her. Mark Wahlberg is now set to play the dad.

    I really loved that book, it wasn't the cheeriest reading, but it was so beautifully written. I can't wait to see the movie.
