I am dying to read this one! I can't wait to hear what you think!


I'm in the middle of it now and it is delightful! I was afraid it was being 'oversold' so perhaps I wasn't expecting much. It's an easy and enjoyable read so fare with really accessible characters. I'll look forward to seeing what you think.. :)

Thanks for the video - I hadn't seen it yet. It definitely explains the book for me! I've been hearing about it for a while now, but this was very helpful.


I haven't heard about this book yet and think I will put it on my to-read list. :)

I loved this book and am recommending it to everyone I know that reads. Enjoy!


I absolutely fell in love with this book. I hope you like it.


I hope you enjoy this as much as I did. One of my top reads of 2008!

Oh Jen,
That is a great pick!!!! When you announced it Wednesday night I couldn't understand what you said and so I have been waiting for this post to see what our next read was to be. I have tried to request this book from the library and the wait list is so long to long!!!!
Do you have copies for your group members??? I sure hope so and please count me in!!!


I reviewed this in August and I loved the book myself. I usually give away my ARCs but this one is a keeper.
My review is here if it interests anyone:

And I can't wait to hear your thoughts on it.

Darby Lohrding

My mistake....this is for your hometown book club, my excitement of seeing your new post I just automatically thought you were writing about our next read for the on-line book club and author chat! I still want to read this book and am still eagerly awaiting your post on our next book.

Sorry about that Darby! I'll post more info on my next pick on Sunday night, in the meantime, you can do a little investigating on your own -- she appears right under the picture of Ann on the right-hand side of the blog.


One of my book groups just read it for Wednesday night! We loved it. We spent most of the meeting re-reading our favorite letters! I highly recommend this one--truly wonderful and beautifully done. Plus, we are all dying to take a trip to Guernsey!

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.
