2016 Book Club List

 This 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 had the first pick this year! I chose to pick a book made into movie. (Last year I picked literary fiction, and 2014 I chose sci-fi/fantasy. I’m trying to branch out a bit every year.) The three books that I took for consideration were: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen/Seth Grahame-Smith, The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins, and the one that we ended up choosing–A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness.

Without further ado, here’s our 2016 list**

January (Sci-Fi/Fantasy) – The Speed of Dark by Elizabeth Moon

February (Memoir) – Hedy’s Folly: The Life and Breakthrough Inventions of Hedy Lamarr by Richard Rhodes

March (Classic) – Persuasion by Jane Austen

April (Historical Fiction) – The Promise by Ann Weisgarber

May (Young Adult) – The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer

June (Non-Fiction) – Fearless by Eric Blehm

July (Mystery) – The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler

August (Romance) – The Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Philipp Sendker

September (Book into Movie) – A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

October (Literary Fiction) – My Name is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout

November (Best Seller) – The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

December – Book Swap

*If you want to see the last five years (pre-dating the blog) of our book choices, go here.

**The person responsible for mystery was unable to attend so that will be determined at the January meeting. We also have one less person in book club than we have months, so the November book will be chosen later in the year, either by a new attendee, or by me (!!) because I had the first choice for this year.
