Book Club Books for 2014-15

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!


  1. Yes this is an awesome line-up! I wish I could join. ;-) You guys have a lot of good reading ahead.

  2. I love the variety of your list and can't wait to see what you all think of some of them!

  3. I'm excited for a lot of them. But, I'm still sad Dune didn't win, lol. But, at least we have the read-along. :D

  4. Those sound like fantastic books to discuss. Many on my TBR but I haven't read any of them yet. We are reading through Harry Potter, on #4 so far. Hopefully at least weather will warm up and stop canceling our book club meetings!!

  5. What a great diverse list! I'm so curious about The Golem and the Jinni.

  6. I think I'm the one who suggested A Winters Tale and then I saw the movie.... It's going to be an interesting read.

  7. Looks like you have some great plans for the up-coming year. Enjoy!

  8. Loving your book club choices! I pan on reading quite a few of these too - and am reading The Golem and the Jinni now, and loving it.

  9. Hooray! I'm excited for these!

  10. My book club read Unbroken a couple of years ago and it made for a great discussion. We did a multi-generational read and invited our parents to join us. Made for a whole different take on the events.

  11. Lots of good choice here.
    Unbroken was awesome and now that there is a film being made of it you will be able to read and watch it!

  12. What a great looking reading list! You've got lots of variety and a lot of books I've heard good things about.

  13. I loves Pope Joan! Or at least I did when I read it about 15 years ago. I really want to re-read.

  14. So many of these books look so great! I have Unbroken on my shelf and I can't wait to see what you think of Maus!!
