Another Good Surprise from Keyes and What's Next for Me

I am winding down Angels and just like in Anybody Out There, Keyes gives us something unexpected. This one is not near as shocking as in Anna's story, but it makes you understand Maggie better (maybe Garv's not soo horrible, we'll see). So after some bondage and lesbian experiences, she is coming back round to herself. Her family just popped in for a visit, and you just have to love them, too. Anyway, I am rooting for Maggie in that she finds herself and her happiness amidst the pink champagne and I Will Survive. She's got a great best friend, and it makes me appreciate mine!

On another note, my 9 year old is presently devouring the new The 39 Clues. I am anxious to see how this series plays out. What a great concept to grab them in, books tied into a website where the reader can become one of them - she loves it, though it is a little on the scary side.

I'm trying to figure out what's going to be next for me and I'm thinking of a book I saw on Amazon, Goldengrove, by Francine Prose. I have read her essays but not her fiction. Maybe that or Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. If anyone has a great suggestion, I am open!

I know, I have a super diverse love of books. I'm always switching genres around. That's one reason I thought blogging would be fun! Thanks for reading.
