Julie P.

Thanks for hosting! I had a terrific time!


Thanks for hosting another really great interview! It was really interesting to hear Victoria's take on aspects of the book and why she took the direction she did with the people and circumstances, etc. I would love to see this novel made into a movie-it would be terrific! Thanks again. I look forward to next month's interview.


Great interview! I love the phrase "emotional hairball" when she shared how very personal (yet not truly autobiographical) some of the topics are.


Jen, Great show and I nominated you for a blog award:)

Book Club Girl

Well thanks! And if you're so inclined, feel free to rate the show over on the BTR site!


I loved listening to this show last night!! I was only able to read the first couple of chapters yesterday but after the show I just had to finish the book!!! When I realized how personal this was for her it was even more heartfelt for me as I read. I am looking forward to your next show and participating!!!


I just had a chance to listen - last week I was on vacation in STONE Harbor. Very interesting. These interviews always add more to my understanding of an author's work. I too also loved her reference to 'emotional hairball' - - she must be a cat lover?!

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.
