2014 Book Club List

This year’s book club list was created similarly to last year’s list. We had a list of categories for people to pick from, however, this year, the categories were chosen in the order of how many meetings you attended over the past year. I was second to pick,  and I chose sci-fi/fantasy.  The three books that I brought to the meeting were Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, The Snow Child  by Eowyn Ivey, and The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi. I hope to actually read all three of these over the year, but we only pick one per category, and Ready Player One  was that one. We did have a few slight changes to our list. We removed the categories comedy and (auto)biography. We chose to remove comedy because it was too difficult to find books in that category and comedy is not something that is consistent from person to person. We chose to remove the biography category because it was too difficult to find books for that category in a size that would be feasible to read in one month (most are 500+ pages). In their place, we added literary fiction and young adult. So, without further ado, this is our list for the year:

January (Classic) – The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

February (literary fiction) – The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time by Mark Haddon

March (book into movie) – Divergent by Veronica Roth

April (nonfiction) – I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai

May (romance/love) – Child of the Mist by Kathleen Morgan

June (mystery) – The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz

July (best seller) – Innocence by Dean Koontz

August (historical fiction) – The Heritic’s Daughter by Kathleen Kent

September (young adult) – Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

October (sci-fi/fantasy)- Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

November (pick an author) – Any book you choose by John Grisham

December – Book swap
