I read Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister. I liked it. Very interesting.

I just finished reading a book by a local author. I understand it's gaining momentum and people have compared it to The Secret Life of Bees. I didn't think it was anything like The Secret Life of Bees, so I think they're just referring to the way it's gaining popularity from the readers and not from advertising. It's called The Richest Season and it was pretty good and the author will travel to almost any book club to discuss it.

But I wouldn't call it eclectic though.

I like Esmerelda Santiago books. I think hers are more eclectic because they have more levels than most books I've read. I've read two--I think there are three. "When I was Puerto Rican" and "America's Dream" are both fantastic. The first is a memoir and the second is a novel.
