What the Book Club Picked!

For anyone interested, here is what my F2F book club decided on for next year's line up:

September: Summer Project: Book to Movie Experiment (read a book, watch the movie, discuss)
October: Ella Minnow Pea
November: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
December: The Wednesday Wars
January: I Capture The Castle
February: Atonement
March: The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat
April: Watership Down
May: Precious Bane

Any comments? Suggestions? Cheers? Warnings? What I love about this list is that I've only read three of them already! Perfect!

We need to figure out a fun book to movie to do for the summer, one that's not overly obvious, or familiar already. I'd love suggestions!


  1. LOVED I Capture the Castle, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, and Watership Down (though it's been years since I read it). I also quite liked Ella Minnow Pea. Atonement is good but I can't say I liked it, exactly, it's quite sad. I don't know your other selections but it sounds like great stuff! Keep us posted.

  2. Aw, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. I should totally re-read that. I know I loved it, but it's been so long now since I've read it that I barely remember it!

  3. There are some great picks! Sounds like fun.

  4. I'm excited about all of them but Atonement. I hated, HATED! the movie. So if the book is anything like the movie get ready for the rant of a lifetime. ;-) I'm glad you've only read three. I always feel bad when you've already read the books we read.

  5. Karen AND Jenny: I'm a little nervous about Atonement actually.

    Megan: I think I've read it twice, so here's to third time around!

    Mouseprints: It does look fun, doesn't it! I love have a whole new list to look forward to!
