Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen (Book Review)

I recently started reading Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen.  I’ve had that book since it’s release and the movie for about a year and haven’t read/watched either.  It was time to finally get to it.  I read the book in two days and watched the movie the next night.  The verdict?  I loved the book…
