I showed you my Book Club L nominations. After the members of the club voted, here’s what we picked:
- 7/10 The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
- 8/10 Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher (my review)
- 9/10 Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese
- 10/10 The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
- 11/10 The Help by Kathryn Stockett (my review)
- 12/10 Mennonite in a Little Black Dress by Rhoda Janzen (my review)
- 1/11 The Unit by Ninni Holmqvist
- 2/11 North of Beautiful by Justina Chen Headley
We went beyond our usual ~6 months of books so that I wouldn’t have to coordinate new book choices in November/December, we’ll deal with it next January/February.
I’ve read half of these books (the ones where I list reviews, plus The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo). I have mixed feelings about this. I know they are good books, and I think they’ll lead to interesting discussion, but I’ll have to reread them (I have a lousy memory), and there’s so many other books I want to read!
The one’s I’m looking forward to most (for reading and discussion) are Cutting For Stone and The Unit.
