F'17 Book Club: Let's Get This Going!

Re: F'17 Book Club: Let's Get This Going!

  • @GlitterDragon if you like sci-fi, you have to try Juliet Marillier! She has a few completed series out already. I believe most of her series are based on Celtic lore (which I love), but the Wolfskin series is based on Nordic lore also.

    Strong female characters, historical, and they have a good romance line without being all about it.

    Sounds great thank you!

  • @tarheelbex I loved Slammed and Hopeless. Has she written more since those series? 
  • All the missing girls sounds good
  • @amotz777 she's written Maybe 5-6 others. One is in production to be made into a movie (Ugly Love), although I have to say that was one of my least favorite of hers. I really liked Confess, and her new one, It Ends With Us, is getting a lot of good hype and comes out next week.

  • We're y'all wanting to turn this into a monthly read to where we could vote like with our monthly sig. challenge? I had been wanting to bring it up in the thread the other day but couldn't remember if we had discussed this last month?

    I'm so excited to see so many suggestions!!!! Finding my next book to read is always tough! I've actually just resumed the outlander series which I started during labor with DS. They're huge books and sometimes she can get a bit wordy, but I love the storyline.

    I'm also one who likes a big variety, but historically based novels and magic/fairies/etc seem to be my favorites.

  • I'm down! I need a good book!
  • @cjs260 I loooved the magicians and SUPER love the show even though it's way different. 


    As for me..
    The next book in reading is the next Harry Potter book. So I may have to skip this one out.

  • I think a book a month is reasonable.  Or maybe every two weeks?

  • I vote a book every 3-4 weeks. I can read fast but not sure I could get one done in two weeks with the little one and husband working a lot.

    @PerraSucia Nice! I'm very much enjoying the books, so I was wondering about the show. I'll definitely give it a shot!

    I like the book a month. I'm a quick reader, but I know that life will start to get busier for me in a month or so.

  • I like book a month since I know I will fall asleep reading way more frequently right now.

  • I haven't read a book in an embarrassingly long time, so I'm in! 
  • A book a month is reasonable, whilst im a fast reader sometimes life just gets in the way

  • Hi all!! I'm in! I'm currently working on the Harry Potter series but I do have inferno on my nook. 
  • I agree with a book per month (we can always adjust if we pick out a longer or significantly shorter book).  Should we just go with a poll between the books that had the most interest so far or are we going to add some more?

  • A book a month works for me. I usually read more than one book at a time so it can take me anywhere from a couple days to a month to get through it depending on how into it I am and how many other books I'm reading at the same time.

  • Question, because a lot of people have mentioned inferno, I googled it. It said that's it's 4th in a series. Those of you that read the others, would we need to be caught up on the first 3 for it to make sense, if we ended up going that route?

    Also not sure what type of books people read in book clubs, I've never been in one, but these 2 are ones I'm currently putting on my list of books to read. 
    Things my girlfriend and I have argued about, a comedy novel by mil Millington
    Neverhome, by laird hunt. A novel about a woman who leaves her husband, disguises herself as a man and enlists in the army during the Civil War. Throughout the story her motives for doing so get revealed.

  • I think a book a month is reasonable! 2-3 weeks is probably do-able, but hell I can't make that kind of commitment because life happens. haha

    Same. I got this habit from my mom. She usually read like 3-4 at a time though & that's more storyline then I can handle! haha

  • You don't need to read the previous books for Dan Brown. I read book 3 first. They are all their own books.

  • Good grief! I'm #17 in line at my library for the winning book. I normally read a book to see how well I like it before I buy, but I might be buying this one first
