the time traveler's wife


I've just completed one of the best books I've ever read and now, when it's time to tell you all about it, I am at a loss for words. You know when you've just finished watching a movie or reading a book and you need that time to truly process what has happened? You have to ask yourself kinds of questions and try to come up with your own answers, so that it makes sense and you have peace. Or, if you're me, a lot of times you'll just beg someone (usually my mom or husband) to make something up! :)

The Time Traveler's Wife was written by Audrey Niffenegger and published in 2003. It is her first novel. It's both engaging and thought provoking. It's smart, imaginitive, and captivating. It doesn't take long for the characters and even the idea of time travel itself to become real.

I've seen it so many times on the shelf at Barnes and Noble and always thought how good it looked. Maybe it is time for me to buy it!

I'm ALWAYS looking for a good book. Do you own it? Wanna swap? I have LOTS of books. I'll send you a list, if there are any you wanna swap with me....we can be a library:) Have you read Sushi for Beginners? I really liked it. Not life changing, but much deeper than I thought it would be.
