The House at Riverton by Kate Morton--I love Morton's period novels. This one takes place mostly in the WWI/1920s. I have one month left in the year and 13 books to read to get to my goal of 100. Will I make it??

Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert--I resisted reading this book when it first hit the bestseller list because I thought it was some sort of self-help book and I generally don't read those. Not that I think I'm perfect and not in need of help, I just don't usually like touchy-feely make everyone happy kind of books. I really didn't decide that I would probably like it until they released the movie advertising version with Julia Roberts on the cover. Love Julia and actually liked the book quite well. I could use some quiet time in an ashram.

Heart of the Matter by Emily Giffin--another cheating story, although this time I had a bit more sympathy for the mistress. The husband, predictably, returned to his wife in the end and the mistress's heart "slowly began to mend." I like the author, but this is not my favorite.

Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese---I still don't understand exactly what the title means, although I do understand much more about Ethiopia and more about surgery.
