The Marchian--Get it? March...Martian...ugh

Forgive my bad pun but the snow is rendering me senseless. Thanks to all who braved the massive snow banks and chilly temperatures to join us last night to discuss You. It may be the most popular book we've done so far.

Next month we will be taking a different turn and reading the sci-fi adventure novel The Martian. I purchased this book on a whim while waiting on a flight at SFO and ended up loving it. The guy sitting across the aisle on the plane expressed how much he loved it when he saw me reading it. I think you'll dig it, even if you're not necessarily a sci-fi fan.

My Bloody Valentine

Join us this February to discuss Caroline Kepnes's YOU. This debut novel is not what it seems at first glance. A tale of obsessive love and lust that might just have to cheering for the "bad guy", and perhaps--even identifying with him.

Here is Caroline on GoodReads

Here is a review...

See you in February...

New Year, New Book!

Our book for January, and our first of 2015, is Michael Faber's strange, hypnotic Under the Skin. Recently made into a film starring Scarlett Johansson, this book tells the story of an odd woman named Isserly who stalks the roads of Scotland looking for men.
