Book Club Books Selected

21 Jul

For those interested in what other book clubs are reading, I thought I’d update you on what one of my clubs has selected:

  • July: I Think I Love You by Allison Pearson
  • Aug: Devotion: A Memoir by Dani Shapiro
  • Sept: A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan
  • Oct: The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
  • Nov: Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand by Helen Simonson
  • Dec: Divergent by Veronica Roth
  • Jan: Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri
  • Feb: Just Kids by Patti Smith
  • Mar: Swim Back to Me by Ann Packer

Has anyone discussed any of these with their book clubs?  How did it work out?

      I was very happy the group selected it! This club has traditionally read a wide variety of books, usually with 1-2 SF/Fantasy choices, as well as at least one YA or even children’s book each year. This batch is more literary than usual, probably as a reaction to our last year being a little lighter than usual. We’ll see what happens next time :-).

    The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks for a one-time book club (we just met to discuss this book, it’s not a formal book club) and we had a great discussion especially since some people there were doctors so they were able to give us their perspectives. Here is my review if you are interested: Haven’t read the other books…
