Calamity Physics by Marisha Pessl

My step-daughter Kaylee gave me this lovely fat book for Christmas, telling me she had read it and liked it and now it was my turn. Here it is February and I am just beginning it. I'm intrigued by the title alone. On a kid lit note I received many boxes of books last week and was so excited to pull out the 4th Ivy and Bean book by Annie Barrows. J and I love this series and bonus: students also check it out so much that I have even ordered a second set. I also pulled out of the box The Underneath by Kathi Appelt, which I am very excited to read as well. While my dishes ran in my new dishwasher I finished the Friday Night Knitting Club and I cried even though I liked the female friendships plus the excitement of James/Marty and then wondered why we needed cancer to add to the chaos. I thought there was enough going on before she went to the gynecologist. I loved the relationship between Walker and Daughter, Dakota very much.

I read Special Topics in Calamity Physics a few years ago....I will be waiting to hear what you think of it!

I started Special Topics a few years ago, read about 100 pages and never picked it up again. I'll be interested to hear what you think of it!

I'm having a tough time getting through it...seems heavy...and the other chapter books I am reading seem to always take precedence which is always a huge indicator!!
