If you like the idea of a state-wide book festival, are you familiar with the National Book Festival in DC every September? It is my favorite event of the year!

Five groups in two hours was pretty hectic, but it was a breeze compared to Malice Domestic, a mystery convention where first time authors give their five-minute pitch over two-dozen times (I counted 26 tables) in two and half hours. I love the blind man with the elephant analogy. You get done and wonder, what the heck did I just say to those people?

But what a wonderful event those New Jersey librarians put on. Thanks for mentioning 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.
