Ugh, stupid Mr. Linky thing left the wrong description. My link is not to a post about The House at Tyneford, I swear! Although it's kind of appropriate because it's also one of those Downton withdrawal books.

Can't wait for this read along! I've been waiting for it ever since the idea started getting tossed around on Twitter.


I have been waiting for this! I have a copy of the Duty to the Dead all ready to go already!


Loved Maisie! Want to try Bess. Looking forward to this readalong. Bought Duty to the Dead on Kindle-Yeah deal!! Would love to start Impartial Witness. Thank you.

I bought A Bitter Truth because I've wanted it forever but didn't have extra money to spend on books. I know, sad.

Thanks for letting me know about the ebook sale. I bought it this morning as soon as I saw your post on Facebook. So glad to join in this discussion!


I bought the ebook of A Duty to the Dead - can't wait to read it!

Jen - Devourer of Books

Yay, I'm SO EXCITED for this read-along! I bought the DUTY TO THE DEAD ebook, can't wait to get started!


Hi! I am going to join in, too. First time I have been to your blog. I will have to look around a bit. :) I just went to buy DUTY TO THE DEAD and it is up to 2.99 from what I can tell. I have my copy, but FYI for anyone else looking to do it. :)

I'm linking to facebook, but in the process of setting up book blog. It's there, just haven't used it yet.
I just bought the e-book but do not have An Impartial Witness yet. Very excited about being a part of this. Thank you.

Haven't watched Downton Abbey yet but these books sound like they are right up my alley. Am looking for the e-book on Nook as soon as this is posted. Looking forward to the read-along.

gaby @ Starting Fresh

Just signed up. Am really excited for the read along. Thanks!

Patti Obrien

Excited about reading the Bess Crawford series, as I have already read almost all of the Ian Rutledge books!

Martha @ Hey, I want to read that

Hurray, I love Bess, she's a worthy compatriot for Miss Maisie. I've been waiting for this read-along.


I'm going to join in and listen to these on audio. I'll add it to my post on Sunday and then link back. These sound great!

Katie @ cakes, tea and dreams

So excited for this!


I may or may not join the read-a-long if I can get the books at the library...but I've announced it on War Through the Generations.

I tried to sign up for the Read Along with Bess program, but since I don't have a blog, and I'm not on Facebook or Twitter, I wasn't able to sign up. Maybe I am not your target audience, hmmmm?

Book Club Girl

I should clarify - if you want to sign up but don't have a blog or Facebook, by all means do enter a comment here that you're joining us. It's ok if you can't add your name to the Mr. Linky itself. We want as many people as possible, not just bloggers and facebookers!


I just bought the ebook! Looking forward to reading it!

Jane Fricker

I am looking forward to joining the discussion of the Bess Crawford series of books

Jessica @ Quirky Bookworm

Loved The Confession! Looking forward to these ones...

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.
