A Book Club Slate for 2012

One of the book groups I follow allows the host to choose the book of the month; no rejections allowed.  Deciding which books to read and discuss a year in advance can be daunting, especially if the intent is to interest as many readers as possible.

Always looking for new ideas for books to read, I like lists of books.  And, if I’ve read many of them – all the better to look forward to revisiting a favorite story.  Here is their list for next year; click on the books in red to read my review.

  • January:  The Secret Daughter by Shilipi Somaya Gowda
  • February: Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese
  • March:  The Swan Thieves by Elizabeth Kostova
  • April: State of Wonder by Anne Patchett
  • May: Into Thin Air by Jack Krakauer
  • June: Nina’s Journey by Nina Markovna
  • July: Sweet Thursday by John Steinbeck
  • August: Old FILTH by Jane Gardam
  • September: Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosney
  • October: The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison Allen

    Into Thin Air is one of the best non-fiction books I’ve read. I don’t think I’ve read any of the others, but many of them are on my library list thanks to your reviews!
