I'd love to have a chance to read this book please. Thank you very much.


I just purchased the book for the Kindle. It sounds really interesting. I don't have a book club to recommend it to, but I will certainly pass on to a couple of friends. I'm interested to hear the radio broadcast!

Carolina Gal's Literary Cafe

Oh, well I did not get in. But that is ok, as I have been able to recieve a few books back to back. I am looking forward to the blog radio in September.


My Book Club just finished Men of Gain by McClelland and not only did we never want it to end but we had a lot of great discussion.

Stephanie C.

I absolutely want to read this book - it sounds so interesting!

Book Club Girl

according to the book's editor, this is the first literary novel about Katrina. I can't wait for this discussion!

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.
