Book Club

Friends, I absolutely LOVED your reading-list suggestions from last time, so please keep them coming!  I still have four more books to power-through before I can start adding to my queue (for sanity’s sake, not because there are actual rules).  Because we all seem to be into that sort of thing, I thought I’d compile the list of your suggestions for all of us to enjoy:

The Girl Who Played With Fire
A Thread of Grace
The Millenium Trilogy,
 by Stieg Larsson
The Glass Castle
Anything by Jodi Picoult
Anything by Chelsea Handler (I’ve read My Horizontal Life – it’s good, but if you loved I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell, you’ll find it tame)
The Joy Luck Club (Tawny, I somehow managed to escape reading this one in H.S.!)
Anything by David Sedaris
Water for Elephants (Back in my book-club days I read this one – highly recommend)
Life of Pi
All Creatures Great and Small
The Gun Seller
The Hunger Games Trilogy
No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (I love this book SO hard.)

In the meantime, here’s what I’ve been reading over the past few weeks…

Audition, by Barbara Walters






The Omnivore’s Dilemma, by Michael Pollan










An American Wife, by Curtis Sittenfeld












I know I have enough reading suggestions to keep me going until at least January, but if you think of (or happen to read) any other books that really take you some place wonderful, please share them!

And naturally, don’t forget to enter the giveaway for a Coach Mini Skinny!

  1. I love the new look with the pictures! Also, if you would like more suggestions I would highly recommend Sarah’s Key and for a very different book check out Other People’s Love Letters.

  2. Katharine Graham is my hero. Seriously. -Katie*

  3. Awesome compilation! I’ll be referring back to this 🙂

  4. i NEED to read The Omnivore’s Dilemma! everyone keeps saying how great it is. i saw Michael on Oprah (a rerun) last month and the things he talked about made lot of sense. (and yeah, if i find a good read, i’ll be sure to pass it on :))

  5. Let me know when you start Hunger Games…mine’s waiting to be read. Also, read The Book Thief. You can borrow my copy–it’s great!

  6. I loved “Omnivore’s Dilemma”–fantastic reading! I’m also a huge fan of Curtis Sittenfield…I really enjoyed her book “Prep.” Thanks for the great reading list!

  7. I loved “Omnivore’s Dilemma” too! It was definitely not the most exciting read, but it was very well written and interesting to read!!

  8. I’ve read so many of these books and I’ve loved most of them but oddly enough I could not get into Water For Elephants. I don’t know why?

    The Glass Castle will forever be one of my favorites. It is possibly the most inspirational book I have ever read!

    Have you read Bitter is the New Black? Slave? Not Ready for Mom Jeans? Madras on Rainy Days? I could go on for hours. 🙂
