Anybody Out There? by Marian Keyes

If you liked the other Marian Keyes book that we read for book club, you'll like this one too!

Bestselling author Marian Keyes has delighted readers with the lives, loves, and foibles of the irrepressible Walsh sisters and their eccentric mammy. In this Life in the Big Apple is perfect for Anna. She has the best job in the world, a lovely apartment, and great friends. Then one morning, she wakes up in her mammy's house in Dublin with stitches in her face, a dislocated knee, hands smashed up, and no memory at all of what happened. As soon as she's able, Anna's flying back to Manhattan, mystified but determined to find out how her life turned upside down. As her past slowly begins coming back to her, she sets out on an outrageous quest—involving lilies, psychics, mediums, and anyone who can point her in the right direction.

Marrying life's darker bits with wild humor and tender wit, Anybody Out There? is a strange and wonderfully charming look at love here and ever after.

*giggles* I can't help but think that Laurie might have picked this particular title to drum up a little discussion here at the Book Club blog! IS "Anybody out There"???

I wish I had a good book to share, but everything I have read lately is total crap. I started a new book last night, so we'll see how that goes. Hopefully I will be able to get through a little of it this weekend and post something good then!!!

Yeah, the only things I've been reading lately are law or books about the bad things about to happen to my "hoo-ha." Ugh.

We need to get Marley & Me rescheduled and then I've got a new book to suggest.

I started a new book last night too. I am grateful to be on a reading spree right now. During the school year it is hard for me to find any time to!
