2013 Book Club List

So I am in a book club. We meet once a month at various places in Houston and talk about our book for the month. I’ve discovered a lot of new eateries via book club, and also a handful of books I would give a 4 or 5 star rating! I’ve been in this book club since mid-2009, and this year we decided to change our book selections somewhat. In past years, each group member brought in a few selections they thought sounded good, and as a group, we selected our favorite one or two (depending how many people vs. how many months) from that. This year, we decided to branch out a bit more and select our books from a set of categories. The selection process was similar in that each member took one category and presented a few options for it. Thus here is our list for this year:

January – historical fiction – The Chaperone by Laura Moriarty

February – classic – The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway

March – mystery – Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

April – non-fiction – Unbroken by Lauren Hillenbrand

May – sci-fi/fantasy – Poison Study by Maria Snyder

June – comedy – Bossy Pants by Tina Fey

July – romance – The Plum Tree by Ellen Marie Wiseman

August – (auto)biography – Brooklyn NY: A Grim Retrospective by Jerry Castaldo

September – recent NY Times bestseller – The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom (my pick!)

October – book made into a movie – Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

November – pick an author – Anne Rice

December – group book swap

  1. This list is amazingly diverse. Good for your book club! : )

  2. Thanks! This is actually the first year that I have been legitimately interested in (or even excited about) all the books on the list! I hope they all are as good as they appear.

  3. I am going to try to keep up with your book club’s list too! I just finished Gone Girl and read it in 24 hours. Really surprising and couldn’t put it down.
