Alligator by Lisa Moore

This is another library selection that I made on the basis of the cover. This novel is written by a Canadian author and is set in Newfoundland. It features an unusual cast of characters. For example, the first character readers meet is 17 year old, ecoterrorist Colleen, who is downloading video clips of beheadings after watching a man who places his head inside the jaws of an alligator. The book is told from multiple points of view, and I was mildly fascinated by whole lot of folks Moore creates in this quirky little novel.

Nature Girl by Carl Hiaasen

This book was a Christmas book from my husband, David, who said he bought it for me because of the girl in the red kayak on the cover. I have a red kayak and he said it look just like me - right? I love Carl Hiaasen for a fun read and this one was perfect for two consecutive snow days we had this week. Honey Santana is the sort of character that makes you want to say "You go girl"
