I want to read the books - do you recommend reading books first or seeing movie first? I think sometimes it makes a huge difference and other times no difference at all.

Book Club Girl

I would recommend reading the books first -- they're super fast reads so you can get through all four of them while the movie is still in wide release I would say. I think they're a richer experience than the movies, which, while I really enjoyed, can't do justice to all the storylines. A tv series would have been great.


I just loved this series. I can't wait to see the second movie. Glad you and your daughter enjoyed it!

I had previously bought my 2 girls these books. We saw the first movie and am taking them this week to see this one Can't wait!

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.
