Any suggestions??

Post by Sarah on Tue Feb 17, 2009 10:40 pm

Looking for ideas as I'm hosting April's bookclub in my neighborhood and I have to be ready in a month w/ my pick. The women are all older than me...probably ranging from 30-50

I thought this was a good book - the Island by Victoria Hislop http://www.amazon.com/Island-Victoria-Hislop/dp/0061340324/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1234926397&sr=8-1

I'd say it would be a good one for a book club.

And hey!!!! 30 is young Lecture

I just finished reading Remember Me by Sophie Kinsella - very good! Total chick lit & super funny.

Thanks ladies-keep 'em coming...and Natalie...I wasn't saying 30 was old-trust me, I'll be 30 next Jan. I was just saying that I'm the youngest in the group and the books I've read in the past I guess seem "younger" to them.

If you want to do a deep thinking religious kind of book I have heard that "The Shack" by William young is good. My sister and my mom are both reading it right now and I am giong to read it when they are done.

It was my month to pick our book and I chose The Shack. We haven't had our meeting yet, but the girls are all really excited about it. I just started it, but my mom said it is really good.

Would The Shack be a good choice if I have no idea what religion or not these women are?

Hmmmm...probably not. It's definitely a Christian book. And I was going to add that it's a super quick read, I read it in about 2 days, so maybe not the best for a month long book club anyway?

Then again, it is a true story so the guy is just retelling what actually happened to him, so it's certainly not preachy or anything like that...

We're reading Kite Runner for our book club in April. I've also heard it is really good!
