You've got a fun blog, and I see a great title in your book club lineup: A Thousand Splendid Suns. Just wanted to share a July 4th review of 1776 on my blog about the Navy's Professional Reading Program, which is a list of suggested titles for women and men serving in the Navy. After seeing your cool blog, I think an earlier post: "Why Women Should Rule the World" might be more fitting. Alas, here's my blog:

Don't forget about the third Frank Bascombe title, The Lay of the Land, where you get to see how everyone turns out. Gorgeous, funny writing, and Frank doesn't disappoint.

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.
