Blogosphere Book Circle reading list

I've gone and joined a book club, we'll be reading one book a month and sharing our thoughts and reviews on our blogs. It's been organised by the lovely Penny at Walking Upside Down and it's going to drag me kicking and screaming out of my usual genre comfort zone of SF&F and make me try something new and different for a change. I'm looking forward to it!

Here's our reading list for the next 12 months.

Feb: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows

Mar: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer

Apr:
In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto by Michael Pollan

May:
The 19th Wife by David Ebershoff

Jun:
The Zookeeper's Wife by Diane Ackerman

Jul:
Letter to my Daughter by Maya Angelou

Aug:
PS I Love You by Cecelia Ahern

Sept:
Beautiful Boy by David Sheff

Oct:

Nov:

I'm excited too. The first book is one I've fondled in bookshops recently as it looked good.
Off to reserve it at the library.

I'm 448 out of 451 in the hold list for the first one! So I think I'll be taking up Em's offer of a lend of her copy. :P

Yes, there are a few on the list that will take me out of my comfort zone too.

In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto by Michael Pollan sounds interesting.

Hi there

I'm excited about the group too. Have belonged to several book groups over the years, in various forms, but not for a couple of years because of parenting commitments.

LOL, I am 183 out of 183 on the reserve list at our library for the first book.

Oh yeah, if you email me I will give you the PW for my blog, if you like. Only if you like though, lol :)

I'm doing it too - hoping it'll make me read stuff I wouldn't normally - still waiting for the first book from the library b ut I have the March one so I may read them out of order.
