What a fabulous way to discover new books - I love how it pushed all of you out of your comfort zones. Thanks for sharing your story!

What a great story! Loved IN SEARCH OF THE ROSE NOTES. I've already been blabbing about it to everyone within shouting distance (and, with the Internet, shouts go a long way). Thanks for this lovely post, Emily. :-)

Thanks, Katie and Susan!


Great post! What other books were highly valued in your group?

Some that come to mind are-
The Wind-up Bird Chronicle by Murakami
Random Family by Adrian Nicole LeBlanc
My Traitor's Heart by Rian Milan
The Secret History by Donna Tartt

I also remember a number of volunteers talking about Lincoln's Melancholy a great deal, but I never managed to get my hands on that one.

There was a copy of The DaVinci Code that made the rounds, and a Harlan Coben book. Any fast-paced book that was like watching TV was appreciated for the lonelier evenings.

A great movement is upon the Earth, and we are all finding our way home. Spirit cannot be denied, and the present global systems that seek to keep us separate, desperate, ignorant and in fear are crumbling before our eyes. This time is one of releasing these qualities that keep us distracted in the world of apparent forms. Going to the center of All-That-Is, this is the cosmic moment to re-establish a strength of heart that keeps us connected to all of Life in the eternal Now.

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.
