I loved the book and look forward to Wednesday's show.


OMG... I cannot put down either. I'm sick, my daughter is sick and I just keep sitting here reading this book!!


I really want to read this one also.

Totally agree...this has been one of my favorite books to read all year.

I am not finished yet, but this book is definately a great one! I am loving it!


I have this one on hold at the library. I'm trying (and failing, I might add) to remember who told me about this book, but I know so many people in that spot, squeezed between two generations and trying to make the best of it.

I seem to be on a roll, these days, with "women-related" books. (Don't most of us go through phases of a bunch of similar kinds of books, before going on to something else? Maybe it's just me.) But in between the latest Robert Parker and my continuing affection for the Betsy-Tacy books, I've been reading great vignettes by women on how they achieved success. It's The Power of Women United," and is just very interesting. It's real words, by real women that have resonated -- as I imagine Kelly Corrigan's words resonate in her book. It's inspiring, for women who want to really see their goals realized.


Hmm -- can't tell if you take links or not -- here's one to the book: Hope it works.

Thanks Lizzie, and are you really a Betsy-Tacy fan or are you just teasing me? Check out the link to the convention on the upper left side of the blog!

I loved the book and will be listening tonight!

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.
