I'm reading Infidel for my book club right now. I'm enjoying it.


I really love visiting this site...I'm such a book addict. I finished reading the Twilight saga from Stephenie Meyer and I'm about to read "The Book Thief" by Markus Zusak. Keep it up!


I just posted a review of Guernsey the other day and almost as soon as it went up, my sister called and told me not to lend my copy to anyone until she's had a chance to read it.

I am so glad to hear that all of you enjoyed GUERNSEY. My book club is reading it for November. I read INFIDEL when it first came out and found it fascinating. I hope you enjoy that one too!

Serena (Savvy Verse & Wit)

Sounds like another good read for the book club. I haven't seen this one around much, but I'd be interested in giving it a try. I'll have to check if the library has it. Thanks for posting this and keeping us updated.


*Infidel* is an amazing memoir! Ayann Hirsi Ali's life has been a whirlwind, and it continues today. The stories of her girlhood are shocking; it's so sad to realize these things go on in our world today.

I read Infidel from a recommendation from my rabbi. The book for me explained what it was like to be a muslim and how hard it is to become a free woman is a free democratic society. It was is very interested. A great book for a discussion in a book club. It would be awesome if you could ever get her on book club radio. Is this book part of Harper Collins?

I'm so glad to hear so many of you have heard of and liked Infidel! It's not a Harper book, it's published by Simon and Schuster, but I agree she'd be great for Book Club Girl on Air....

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.
