The Uncut Diamonds Hype
After hearing so much about this book, I could hardly wait to go out and buy it. I know, I said I wasn't going to buy anymore books for awhile. Well, it's the weekend, so it's time right? I treated myself and bought Uncut Diamonds and 13th Reality.
The book is sitting right beside me. I'm so anxious to read it. The cover is even more vibrant and beautiful in real life than in the pictures. This book, by Karen Jones Gowen, has been called "everything you have always wanted in an LDS novel. It is Steel Magnolias with Mormon characters." I wish I knew who said that.
I expect this novel to make me laugh, pull at my heart, and tug at my emotions. For those who are not LDS, this book will provide an interesting insight into a curious and foreign culture.
As soon as I have it finished (which will probably be Monday), I'll post my thoughts. If you haven't heard about this book, now is the time to get to your local bookstore and ask about it.
