The reading sounds like so much fun! I have an e-galley of The Return and need to read it soon before it expires!

I love the idea of putting up the photographs and eating the local foods! I bet the reading was great. More authors need to visit the Penn State campus.


How nice that you got to enjoy a reading by Victoria Hislop. I loved The Island, leprosy is a special interest of mine and so few novels mention it with any real historical accuracy or compassion. I am definitely going to read The Return as soon as I can.


Who is in charge of selling ad space on your site? I have an insurance company website and would like to purchase a text link from you. Please let me know the cost and if I can pay you right now with PayPal..




Haha. I woke up down today. You’ve cehered me up!

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.
