I've got Suite Francaise that's just been itching to be read for a while now. And what can be better than a nice glass of wine and a good book right!

Julie E.

Can we make other French-themed suggestions? Because I really liked "Shakespeare & Co." by Sylvia Beach and "Time Was Soft There" by Jeremy Mercer.
I also want to read "Suite Francaise," and the Baxter book sounds intriguing.

Deirdre Greene

Two nonfiction French-themed books you might be interested in:
A Journey into Matisse's South of France and A Journey into Flaubert's Normandy.


*Suite Francaise* is such a great book! The backstory in the appendices adds to the intrigue. I haven't read any of Nemirovsky's other books.

Have to admit that I haven't read anything else on the suggested list either: "we'll always have Paris" is simply a line from Casablanca to me!

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.
