Book Chat-The Little Giant of Aberdeen County by Tiffany Baker

First of all Thank You Mariam from Hachette for sending the ARC.

I am going to be talking about this book with Dar from Peeking Between the Pages this week. I am excited to co-review a book with Dar.

Dar and I have been part of an on-line book club for over five years and we have read OVER 60 books together. I look forward to having this special time with her.

So far in the first section we are just getting to know about the "doctor" legacy of the Morgan Doctors and we are learning about the Town of Aberdeen.

We are given insight to Truly's birth. I think she is going to be a really likable character. Just the origin of her name and the events following is a very enticing introduction to this book.

In the first segment we are introduced to the Evil Amanda Pinkerton. She is just nasty as can be.

From the start I really like this book. I think the writing is enchanting and clever with a lot of imaginative phrases. I mean really good. This might be a favorite for me in this year. I really do not know what is going to happen but I am so excited to find out.

This book is coming out in hardcover January 2009. Keep your eye out for it!

Please tune in with A Circle of Books and Peeking Between the Pages all week long to hear about what appears to be a captivating original novel. We are just two good friends sharing a book together this week. It doesn't get much better than that.

Stay tuned for more. We would love to hear your thoughts.

Toni, don't you just love the name Truly? I really like it-it's different but good different.

Amanda Pinkerton-boy are you right-I don't like her already being so mean to Truly.

I think you may be right about this ending up being one of our favorite reads.

I can't wait to get on to the next part...

This is a great idea. Are you going to be doing this for the other Hachette group books? I like the idea of a book group. I think I need the motivation sometimes!

Dar - Love the cover art. I believe the background is the "quilt" :)

Bermudiaonion - I hope you get it too.

Bonnie and Jenn.. Read along. Jenn.. I forgot that you got this one to. I really like it so far.

Sharonanne - No further plans but this is so fun I hope to do it again. As I mentioned Dar and I have shared A LOT of books together over the last five years. I might be posting a list soon.
