I adore award shows as well. Well, the red carpet coverage in particular. For the Oscars, I make food all day in anticipation of the event.

My book club has done the movie/book meeting before and it was a lot of fun. It's easier to do when the movie it out on DVD though. We never seem to be able to time it right for the movie to be on the big screen. We are looking forward to The Road but now I heard it may go straight to video. That would be a shame.

I love awards shows too, especially the Oscars. I never understand the people who complain they're too long. My book/movie pairing suggestion would be "The Orchid Thief" and "Adaptation." I love the movie "Adaptation," and it would certainly spark discussion in relation to the book it was supposed to be based on.


Well I apologize, Slumdog Millionaiare, which just won, is based on a the novel Q&A! Here it is:


I very much appreciated how Tom Hanks, Kate Winslet and Danny Boyle gave shout outs to the books on which their films were based. Kudos.


I didn't know "Slumdog Millionaire" was based on a novel until the writer won and mentioned it! Glad to know I wasn't the only one who made that mistake.


If you have a chance to see Slum dog Millionaire, go see it. A Indian young man plays the Game you want to be a millionaire. Each question is asked, and each time the young man flashes back to his life from the question he is asked. You won't be sorry to see this. I have never seen a movie or read a book this way. It was so different I loved again. I can't rave enough about it.

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.
