I did it to myself ... I was so focused on making sure that my book club had good solid books to read this year ...
The Night Circus
The Age of Innocence
Let's Pretend This Never Happened
... that I promoted a list that includes 4 books I have already read.
At least everyone else will have great books to read this year!
And I will have lots and lots of time to read the books I am sure I will not get to this summer.
Final Book club list for 2012-2013:
The Dovekeepers by Hoffman
The Sisters Brothers by DeWitt
The Power of One by Courtenay
Let's Pretend This Never Happened by Lawson
Devil in the White City by Larson
Night Circus by Morgenstern
The Paris Wife by McClain
Age of Innocence by Wharton
The Painter From Shanghai by Epstein
Hare with the Amber Eyes by DeWaal
So I think we will start strong and end with a whimper. From what I have learned about the personalities and what I have already read, the first six books will be wonderful. The next two have potential and the last two will be bad. D suggested The Painter and I have never liked one of her suggestions. Anything she likes, I don't. I like her, but we have the most divergent tastes of any two people in the group. The last one I have already read and didn't like the first time around.
