under the big top.

the great depression.  the circus.  and of course, love.  these three things added up to one of my favorite books read in 2010, water for elephants, by sara gruen. and yes, that makes me very excited about the movie's release this weekend. 

to me, the most fascinating part of this book is the research that went into it.  gruen wove true stories seamlessly into the narrative, and was then kind enough to include an explanation of what was fact and what was fiction in an appendix.  as is often the case, the truth proved the more fantastical.

{pretty excited about this cast!}
