This Year's book club list
Permalink Closed


I thought I would try to creat discussion here by posting our book club's reading list.  So, here it is (I'm leaving out the authors due to laziness on my part):

Sarah's Key
We Need to Talk About Kevin
Little Bee
The Piano Teacher
Home Game
Shanghai Girls
Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim
Water for Elephants
The Glass Castle

I love hearing what other book clubs are reading, so if you're in a book club, post away please!

That looks like a really good list! I recently read The Piano Teacher - it was very good.

Our club loved the Glass Castle, but the reviews were mixed on Water for Chocolate.

Our next book is The Kids are Alright

gossipgirl - do you mean Water for Elephants or Like Water for Chocolate?  We are reading Water for Elephants.  I've heard of The Kids Are Allright.  Let me know how your club likes it!

hehe - mistake - I meant Water for Elephants. I liked it, maybe not as much as the Glass Castle, but some weren't thrilled with the story line.

I've already read the Glass Castle and loved it.  We are also reading Never Let Me Go and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.

You have a David Sedaris! If you've never read him before, you're going to love him. He's so funny and weird.

I love funny and weird!  A lot of us have read him and we kind of just picked him by default because we were trying to find something light.  All (or most) of our other choices were a bit heavy and we wanted light reading during the winter months.  I'm looking forward to reading it, but after the meeting I remembered a book called "Sh*t my Dad Says" that I want to read that I think would have been great.  Have you heard of or read that one? 

Any other light (but not chick lit) books that you guys recommend?

Have you ever read A Year in Providence by Peter Mayle? It's about an English couple who move to a quaint little town in France. The book is nonfiction and quite funny. Anything that can go wrong with the house does and the culture shock of living in a small French town is hilarious. He wrote a series of books on his experiences in Providence, but I think the first book was the best.

I haven't read Anthony Bourdian's new book, Medium Raw, yet, but I loved his other books.

Thanks, Boots.  Yep, I've read A Year in Provence and liked it!  I've also read one of Anthony Bourdain's book - Kitchen Confidential I think.  Going to check out Medium Raw now.  Thanks for the rec!
