I learned that The Space Between Us was published in India and has done quite well there. Thanks for the great giveaway!

Thanks for the giveaway! I loved this book and the show the first time around! I learned a bit about a culture I had never really read about before when I picked this up last year.


I learnt that many people who read the book are able to relate to the characters or circumstances being mentioned in the book.

i haven't read this book yet but i get the majority of my book reads from suggestions - thanks for the tip on this one. i've added it to my "to-read" list.


I learned that the book is about two women who live very different lives, who discover they have a real commonality between them. This book sounds like it would be an excellent read!

Martha@Hey, I want to read that

This has been on my list for a while. Thanks for hosting a giveaway. I missed this show and look forward to catching up.

Loved hearing the interview . . . I am always searching for new authors and looking forward to reading Ms. Umriger's books. Thanks for the site!!


I really enjoy the book suggestions. I haven't read The Space Between Us yet.


I learned that Thrity didn't intend to make the characters good vs. bad. My book club mentioned this aspect too - of the women being portrayed as good and the men as bad. But, as Thrity discussed she didn't see it that way. She saw her characters as humans that have been shaped by their circumstances and their upbringings, etc. A great book - we had an awesome discussion and even though I read this in the Fall - listening to this author chat brought all the characters back to me - the sign of a really great characterization and memorable plot. Thanks!!!!


I love books that let me glimpse into the life of another culture, especially one as foreign to me as India. Can't wait to read this one!


"The Space Between" sounds like it delves into some topics that interest me: power, gender, social/cultural conditions and the human condition/psychology—from a perspective I think I understand if not empathize with. I am definitely interested to read it and check out more about Thrity. Thanks to author and hostess and questioners! :-)


I read this book and loved it so I enjoyed listening to your discussion with the author. I like the point she made about the book's theme of power and those that wield it - I hadn't considered that but it does feature in so many of the relationships in the novel.


This book explores the culture and unique characters which sound fascinating and memorable.


My favorite things that I have learned is about authors I had previously never heard of. I have added several to my revolving Farris wheel of favorites. This author is a case in point.


I've never heard of this author or book before and I'm always happy when i stumble upon awesome books!

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.
