The results are in! Here's what my IRL book club has chosen to read this coming year:
- Unbroken (this book was already on the list and I think we'll finally get to it in October!)
- Persuasion and For Darkness Shows the Stars the same month. Cool!
- Winter’s Tale. Has anyone seen the movie? Is it good?
- Wintergirls for a little taste of a book written in verse. Also because Laurie Halse Anderson is awesome.
- Pope Joan. We've been wanting to read this one forever.
- The Golem and the Jinni. The popular book of last year.
- The False Princess. Because we needed a fairy tale fantasy.
- The World’s Strongest Librarian. He's local! And many of the book club members haven't read it yet, so let's do it!
- Out of the Easy. We loved Between Shades of Gray. So we needed to read this one.
- Catcher in the Rye. Many members haven't read this one and are curious. This could be interesting!
- Maus. We wanted to include a graphic novel and this one is probably one of the most well known. I think. This experiment could be interesting too!
- And Fairy Tale Re-tellings for a summer project! We love summer projects in our book club!
- Plus, several book club members who are also bloggers want to do some bonus read alongs for the following books: North and South, Dune and The Lord of the Rings. I'm sure you'll be seeing more info about those as they come up. We'd love to have you join us!
Well? What do you think? It's an awesome line up, yes? And seven of them I haven't read yet! Double yes!
