Book Club Schedule

At this point, the book club has been humming along, and we’ve come down to a name of Eclectic Bookworms as far as I can tell.  At this past meeting, we selected books for the end of this year and through May 2013.

  • Sept.  The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield, which I’ve had on the shelf since I began blogging five years ago!
  • Oct. The Help by Kathryn Stockett, which I bought ages ago and still sits unread.
  • Nov. King Solomon’s Ring by Konrad Lorenz
  • Dec. Eyes, Stones by Elana Bell — ah, poems, you’ll never guess whose nomination this was!
  • Jan. Ripper by Stefan Petruchia; I’ve got a disturbing fascination with Jack the Ripper.
  • Feb. Shadows by Ilsa J. Bick
  • Mar. Every Man Dies Alone by Han Fallada — Anna’s nominations were too hard for me to choose between, it’s a good thing majority ruled in this one.
  • Apr. Winters End by Jean-Claude Mourlevat, translated by Anthea Bell; I’m happy to see this is a translated work.
  • May The Last Van Gogh by Alyson Richman; I cannot wait to read this because yes, I have a fascination with certain artists and Van Gogh is one of them.

As usually, when I post the reviews of these books, I’ll be sure to add the book club’s thoughts on each and a spoiler warning.

What’s your book club reading?


  1. Nice mix. I’m curious to hear about RIPPER. Like you, I’m fascinated by the entire thing!

  2. I’m just excited that our book club has stayed together so long!

  3. Our book club is leaning more to non-fiction this year – I wish was reading your list!

    I’ve read the first two. I think you’ll really enjoy The Thirteenth Tale.

  4. I’m working on the list for my library book group. What I have so far: Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh, Next to Love by Ellen Feldman, Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce, The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker, The Homecoming of Samuel Lake by Jenny Wingfield, The Last Poilceman by Ben H. Winters, Mistress of Nothing by Kate Pullinger, Invisible Ones by Stef Penny, Heft by Liz Moore, The Leftovers by Tom Perrotta, Zeiton by Dave Eggers, All Roads Lead to Austen by Amy Elizabeth Smith, something by Dickens. Obviously more titles than I need, and maybe a little heavy on the end of the world type of story. Any help on cutting down the list is appreciated 🙂

  5. You should get some great conversation out of the first couple of books! Both of those were excellent reads!

  6. Sounds like a great schedule! My book club is disorganized at the moment.
