I’m always looking for discussable books to present to my book club, so it’s endlessly interesting to me to find out what other clubs are reading these days. I asked some blogger friends what their clubs were reading, and thought I’d share the answers here:
Meg Waite Clayton, author of The Wednesday Sisters: The Wednesday Sisters Book Club is reading Dreams From My Father by Barack Obama
Suey from It’s All About Books: The Third Thursday Book Club is reading The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd
Melanie at Lit Chick Cafe: We are reading Still Alice by Lisa Genova in April, then A Golden Age by Tahmima Anam in May.
Julie at Booking Mama: The Preschool Moms Book Club is reading The Ten Year Nap in April and The Help in May.
Author Laura Fitzgerald: The Desert Chicks are reading Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates.
Heather from A Lifetime of Books: Stories delle Sorelle (italian for Stories of the Sisters) is reading The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz in April, Queen of the Road by Doreen Orion in May (including a chat with the author!), and Little Bee by Chris Cleave in June.
Jen at Devourer of Books: The Wine and Book Club is reading Expecting Adam by Martha Beck
Gayle at Every Day I Write the Book Blog: her online book club is reading Buffalo Lockjaw by Greg Ames
Tara at Books and Cooks: The 8 is Enough book club is very organized and plans ahead for the whole year. Their list is HERE.
Beastmomma: Her club is reading Ali and Nino by Kurban Said (she adds that it is very interesting but tough to get through!)
Kristen of Book Club Classics: Her club is reading Rushdie’s The Enchantress of Florence.
Jessica of Barney’s Book Blog: Her club is reading The Last Days of Dogtown by Anita Diamont
Stephanie of Stephanie’s Written Word: Her club is reading The Big Girls by Susanna Moore.
Lesley of Lesley’s Book Nook: Her group is reading The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.
AND last, but not least, Trish at Hey, Lady! was embarrassed to tell me that her club is reading My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult. I told her not to be embarrassed- I loved that book!
Have you read a book recently that you could not wait to discuss? Or one that you were embarrassed to admit that you were reading (and possibly even enjoying)? Leave me a note and tell me what it is! I must know!!
