The book club has picked books! I love this part of book club... choosing the line up for the next year. Since our book club uses library book club sets, we have to choose well in advance (a whole year) so we can reserve the books. This way we are pretty much guaranteed our first choices.
So here's what we've decided on:
Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
Mrs. Mike by Benedict Freedman
About a Boy by Nick Hornby
The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
The Bone Collector by Jeffery Deaver
The History of Love by Nicole Krauss
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy
Unwind by Neal Shusterman
I Am the Messenger by Markus Zusak
1984 by George Orwell
Pope Joan by Donna Woolfolk Cross
The Actor and the Housewife by Shannon Hale
What do you think? Has your book club read any of these books? Did they go over well? Are there any of them you think we shouldn't do... ones that won't work? Or any of them we should be especially excited about?
