Currently Reading... in Written word Posted March 24, 2004 Just finished The Secret Life of Bees and have started Lovely Bones. For those of you who have read both, you're now thinking about the very strange theme I have going on. Lovely Bones is a good but very very sad book. I read her memoir "Lucky" after I read Lovely Bones. Middlesex is a good book for all the reason mentioned above, but I don't think it was worthy of the Pulitzer.
