Book Club Picks from You!

Welcome to my weekly series: Book Club Picks. This week, I decided to turn the tables and ask my readers on Facebook and Twitter for their book club recommendations. I'm always looking for new ideas that I can present to my club when it's my turn to host. I posed this challenge on both social media outlets: NAME ONE BOOK THAT YOU WOULD RECOMMEND TO BOOK CLUBS. Some of the responses were books I've already read with my book club, but there are a few new ones here that I'm excited to share.




Here are the responses from Twitter!


My book club just read The Girl on the Train in July and most of the group liked it. It definitely has some interesting characters and situations to discuss!


We have not read this one, so I'm adding it to my list! Thanks for sharing your review of I Am China.


Great recommendations! My book club has actually read both of those books and I'd definitely recommend them. Here are the links to reviews by The Book Wheel Blog: 
The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry 
Orphans of Race Point



I have not read Fangirl yet. Yes, I know I need to read it! Now it is closer to the top of my list.

And here are the responses from Facebook (see below for links to the reviews):



Check out the reviews shared on Facebook:
The Ones We Trust reviewed by Mom's Small Victories
Unbecoming reviewed by Doing Dewey
Heavy Weather reviewed by Good Girl Gone Redneck
The Blue Bottle Club reviewed by Sandra's Ark

Now it's your turn! Name one book that you would recommend to book clubs.


Please let me know if you have suggestions for topics to cover, or if you would like to write a guest post for my Book Club Picks series. I'd love to hear about your book club or your favorite books for discussion!

Getting back to blogging

It seems that blogging has dropped to the bottom of my list for the past year, and was pretty low for the year or two prior to that. I love to read, and am continuing to do so, but as my regular readers know I haven't been around much. My last blog post was almost a year ago!!

There are many things that have taken me away from blogging. Work has been much more challenging and interesting these past few years, but that means I really don't want to get back on the computer when I get home at night - or on the weekends.

Family life has been more busy with kids having multiple activities in the evenings, leaving little time to just hang out and write about the books that I read.

I will admit to a bit of a Facebook addiction, which means way too much time spent scrolling through my newsfeed instead of doing something more productive. This is one of the things I'm working on and hoping that this will free up some time for getting back to the blog.

Overall, life is good. Work is …

Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop

I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Mundie Moms are hosting the Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop in honor of Independence Day in the United States, and I've decided to participate.

To stick with the theme of Independence Day, I'm doing what I did last year for this hop:

I'm giving away a book of your choice that is written by an author from the United States.
It can be any genre as long as the author is from the United States. You choose the book (up to $15), and I'll order it and have it mailed to you from Book Depository.

The contest ends on Thursday, July 5th at midnight Eastern Time. The winner will be notified by e-mail. If they do not respond within 48 hours, a new winner will be drawn.

Happy 4th of July! I hope you have a safe and fun holiday!
