Jeff's blog was interesting as it offers insight into the avenues book clubs use for selecting books. With my latest book, "The Brightest Moon of the Century" receiving some great publicity in a review in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune as well as two dozen more reviews, I still have not caught the interests of a book club yet, and I'd love to do so. Would offering a video Skype session with the author (me) help?

I taught "The Time Traveler's Wife" in two of my Freshman English classes, by the way, and my students loved it. I thoroughly enjoy talking about literature, which is what led to my writing it.

I think the book Princess Bubble is one that all girls/women need to read. Have you heard of this?

Jeff Kamin

Christopher, feel free to e-mail me directly and send a review copy for our club.

Kylie, I have not, but our club is also about 40% male. Would it appeal to men as well?

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.
