The Fault in Our Stars by John Green: loved it, well four stars worth anyway
I Am Not a Serial Killer by Dan Wells: thought it was okay but that it caused sleep problems
War Horse by Michael Morpurgo: found it accidentally at the DI, read it in an hour or so
Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen: this Robin Hood re-telling come comes out next month, she read it on NetGalley, which lead to a discussion on exactly what that is.

Jenny read:

Suey read:
Persuasion by Jane Austen: needed a re-read!
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green: loved it, five stars worth.
Delirium by Lauren Oliver: another dystopian, a little slow at first, crazy at the end

Whew! We talked a lot about a lot of books! Awesome.


  1. To be fair, I thought John Green HAS seen a therapist, not that he needs to see one. ;)

    I like that you do these recaps. Even though I was there I'm sure others appreciate it. And did you see? Jessica marked Before I Go To Sleep as a TBR.

    1. LOL on the John Green thing... I knew it was something like that! :)

  2. You DID talk about a lot of books! I'm impressed!

  3. As always, thank you thank you for creating this record!! I can always point to these posts as evidence that we do, in fact, talk almost exclusively about books at book club.!
