I actually haven't read any Trigani, but I think this book sounds really interesting!

Helen Brady

I loved Queen of the Big Time, and Lucia, Lucia. Wonderful characters ,well written ,both great reads.

JaymeLyn

i loved lucia, lucia!

Nely

I've never read anything from this author but I have definitely been eyeing this book. It sounds good.

Diane La Rue

I fondly remember the first time I opened up "Big Stone Gap". I fell in love right away with Ave Maria, and all of her friends. I wanted to live in her small town!
I can't wait for the movie- Whoopi will be a great Fleeta.
I've read all of the Big Stone Gap books, and every time it was like catching up with old friends.

I listened to "Rococo" as an audiobook, and Mario Cantone was the perfect narrator. If you haven't listened to an audiobook, this is the perfect one to start with.

I can't wait to read "Very Valentine"!

Big Stone Gap is the kind of book you write your name in when you loan it out to others (which you will) because you definitely want to eventually get it back so you can read it again later!

Kate

I loved Lucia, Lucia. It takes place in my neighborhood, and the characters even eat at some of my favorite restaurants. And I really enjoyed the descriptions of her work--I wish department stores had that kind of service now!

Amanda

This sounds so interesting and perfect for this season. Thanks!

It seems like a million years ago when I read Big Stone Gap. I definitely remember enjoying it, but never read anything else by her. Looks like it's time to get back to this author! :)

Julie P.

I loved all the Big Stone Gap books. I can't even pick one. Ms. Trigiani is one of my all-time favorite authors.

Lisamm

I loved Lucia, Lucia!! I read it on a cross country flight from the west coast to NYC (and back). I can't wait to read her new book!

Lisamm

Oh, I almost forgot Queen of the Big Time! I loved that one, too. Read that on vacation in NE Pennsylvania one year, sitting by the lake!

Kathy

My favorite Trigiani book is Lucia, Lucia.

Darby Lohrding

I've seen this book several places now and it seems to be a big hit!!! I love that it is the first in a series!!! My fave book by this author is Big Stone Gap! I love the way her stories pull you right in like you are one of the characters.
Happy Valentine's Day to you too!

I've only read "Lucia, Lucia" so far and it was such an enjoyable read! I've heard great things about "Very Valentine" and I can't wait to read it!

Vicki Wilson

I loved Big Stone Gap. My mother-in-law in England recommended that I read it. It's one of her faves! I'm going to have to make sure she knows that Very Valentine is out, so she can pick it up!

Julie E.

My favorite is "Big Stone Gap," although I plan to read more. This one sounds really good; I'll add it to my list. :)

Lauren

My favorite is "Lucia, Lucia." I must admit, I bought it because the cover intrigued me. After reading it, however, I was so pleased! It was a great read with an addictive story and well crafted characters.

I'm really excited about this book!

shelburns

I haven't read anything by this author, but I would love to start with this one! It looks and sounds like a very good read.

LISTEN NOW TO AUTHORS DISCUSSING THEIR BOOKS

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.
