Fun, Inspiring, Optimistic
An enjoyable, quck read

This was a fun book. A quick and easy read that was welcomed after taking on some previously heavy book selections. The suggested activities on the last pages were a spring-board for one of our liveliest, most interactive meetings to date!

Fun, Inspiring, Optimistic
Great story and an easy, fresh read.

Our club really enjoyed this book and it was especially welcomed after some previously heavy book selections. We all felt we could relate to the characters and story line. There are some suggestions in the back of the book for activities and games that work off the theme of making a life-list of things to do. Not only did that go over well, but we were able to arrange a telephone conference with the author and had a ball discussing the book with her!

The Shack by William P. Young
Insightful, Inspiring, Life Changing
This book not only tackled difficult subject matter, but was difficult to read overall.

"The Shack" provided for interesting discussion but was not an overall favorite for the club.

Interesting, Dramatic, Informative
A facinating look into the history of the court of Henry VIII

This book ranked up there in our club's top favorites! History comes alive in this story and left us all wanting more. Our discussion was lively, hitting on topics of social structure, women's rights, and child-bearing. Hollywood missed the mark in the making of "The Other Boleyn Girl" - the book is so much better.

Punahou Blues by Kirby Wright
Beautiful, Insightful, Brilliant
This story did not have any capturing qualities - you wait for something to happen, and it goes nowhere.

This was not a favorite read. Our club used the theme to talk about high school memories - we always have a good time regardless of the book!

Love Walked In by Marisa De Los Santos
Boring, Dramatic, Romantic
This was not an overall favorite for our club.

"Love Walked In" is one of those quick reads that doesn't leave a lasting impression. Our group really didn't have much to share in discussion.

Informative, Interesting, Dark
A great non-fictional account of the Chicago World's Fair and the mysteries surrounding a serial killer stalking the city

Our book club really enjoyed this book. The author did an impressive amount of research for this topic and while it is non-fiction, the writing style made for easy and exciting reading.

Dramatic, Gloomy, Interesting
With all the Hollywood hype about the movie, our club was interested in reading the book first. Not an overall favorite.

People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks
Informative, Interesting, Insightful
This book seemed to take time to really get into. Not an overall favorite but most liked it.

Author joined the meeting!

This is the second time I've asked the author, Jill Smolinski, to join my book club meeting and it was great fun once again! It worked out smoothly to have her join us via Skype. The book was entertaining and provided for good discussion.
