2015 Book Club List

2015/01/img_10381.jpgThis year’s book club list was created similarly to last year‘s list*. We have a list of genres to choose from and depending how often you actually make it to book club dictates the order in which you get to pick your genre. I picked literary fiction this year, as I wanted to mix it up a bit. The three possibilities that I brought as options were Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline (which we selected), Florence Gordon by Brian Morton, and Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel.

This year we added an additional category–banned books. However, we did not drop any genres. So this year, the last person had a choice between 2 genres which ended up meaning that no one picked a classic for this year. I guess I’m going to have to pick one to read for myself.

Without further ado, here’s our 2015 list**

January (Young Adult) – We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

February (Historical Fiction) – His Majesty’s Dragon by Naomi Novik

March (Best Seller) – All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

April (Literary Fiction) – Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline

May (Mystery) – The Prisoner of Heaven by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

June (Romance) – The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion

July (Pick an Author) – TBD**
