which book should we read for book club?

Thursday, December 13, 2012

Attention virtual book club members:

I received a bunch of suggestions and put them on the future H&J book club list-- Thank you for all of your input!  For the initial round of the book club I have selected these four novels to choose between. I think that each one brings something a little different to the table. Please peruse the books on amazon or goodreads and then cast your vote!

1. Cinderella Ate My Daughter-
2. The Red Tent-
3. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn-
4. Dispirited- (Bonus: I know the author of this book and she said she would speak to us if we chose it!)

You can cast your vote in the comments or at the top of the right side bar. Voting closes in five days and then the real party begins.



  1. I'm not sure if it's too late to sign up for your virtual book club but I would love to take part! I love ghost stories with a lil edge of romance to them. I'm all for Dispirited!! The synopsis really grabbed me! =)


  2. I totally want to do this! Yay! I vote for 1, or 3. Mainly because I already have both books.

  3. I vote "Cinderella ate my daughter" only because I am Cinderella obsessed and i want to hear your review on it!


  4. My husband read #2 for a englishs class I think. I vote number #4 although I never said I was going your book club. Can I join now. LOL

  5. Asking the same like Chloe Moon,can I still sign in for your club??
    And I already voted for book number 1 on your poll :D

  6. The Red Tent is one of my favorite books! It's very serious and there is a lot that happens that may make you think "this is terrible", but it's fascinating. A beautiful story. I highly recommend (as someone who reads quite a lot)!
