Thank you for the link to the review. It's ridiculous how much I love Emily. I still have to get a copy of Winona and Carney. But, I do look forward to it.

Melissa Mc (Gerbera Daisy Mom)

I just posted my review of MHL's Early Candlelight on my blog today and mentioned that I would never have known anything about her without the help of book blogs! It was a lovely story -- I was completely wrapped up in it until the end. And then it tanked. But, it hasn't lessed my new found admiration for her works. I have the three stories mentioned on my shelf, I will be reading them soon.

YAY for these wonderful books - and the praise of them. I just reread Betsy and Tacy Go Downtown (again), and am thinking of Emily as I "muster my wits" during this cold winter.

Dawn - She Is Too Fond of Books

I snatched the Weekend Journal out of J's hands when he walked in with it last Friday. "Oh, a book thing," he said, when he saw me flipping to the Reviews section.

"A book thing?!? No, it's a Betsy-Tacy thing!" I stormed.

Yes, then I mustered my wits and patiently explained Maud Hart Lovelace, Betsy, Tacy, "the gang," the NewBetsies, etc.

I don't think he'll dismiss me with "Oh, a book thing" again :)

Dawn, I love it. I think all of our loved ones have experienced such moments of being victim to our passionate rants. I remember, years ago, giving my mother the high points of the entire series and totally choking up when I told her about the end of Great World. Honestly, I looked like a lunatic. But as she's my mom, I think she thought it was pretty great.


I'm not American, so this is a discovery for me. I've googled the books and they seem quite interesting but, could anybody tell me about the values they teach? Are they the typical "marry and become a housewife" stories or are they more revolutionary?

Thanks a lot!

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.
