I remember this book was the first real "adult" book with "adult" themes I ever read. I'm glad to see Target is focusing also on a classic to get people to see not only the brand new best seller is worth reading.


My book club read this last year and it was quite a hit. I wasn't able to finish it before the meeting so right afterwards, I delved right back into it to complete it. This one was worthy enough to pass along to my mother.


One of my all time favorites. We've read it for one of my book groups before at my suggestion, and everyone was so glad they read it. Like Laura M, this was one of those transitional books for me--it was a grown up book, even though it begins as the story of a little girl. My 12 yo daughter read it recently and loved it. Wonderful book.

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
