I absolutely LOVE reading the Books & Bars posts--they make me wish I lived in Minneapolis.

Unfortunately, I don't have any book recommendations at the moment, but I'll mull it over . . .


How coincidental, I'm actually just about to start reading that book. I've heard that it's been getting mixed reviews, so I'm interested to see if I lean towards the 3 star review or the 1 star review. I'll let you know!


Some of my club's best discussions came from books that were not well received. Funny how that works. I think strong reactions either way is really what does it.


I agree with Ti, some of our best meetings were discussions over books that were not universally liked. Great post!

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.
