I hope you are all enjoying the book club choice for June which is ‘H is for Hawk’ by Helen MacDonald. I am finding it mesmerizing and engrossing. I am nearly finished. As it was a rather unusual choice, I thought I would put July’s book choice out to the people by way of a democratic vote. I am going to put up three choices of very different books and the one with the most votes will be July’s book club choice. That’s how we do it in the other book club I attend, and I must say I think it is very fair! So, here goes:
1. The Secret History by Donna Tartt.
“It starts with a murder, is obsessed with ancient Greece and creates the delicious illusion of being admitted to the most dangerous of confidences.” The Guardian.
2. The Lives of Women by Christine Dwyer Hickey. ” A streetwise tale of sex and scandal in Middle America.” The Independent.
3. The Storied Life of A.J Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin (already recommended to me by a book club follower and I have read it praised by other writers.) “This novel has humor, romance, a touch of suspense, but most of all love–love of books and bookish people and, really, all of humanity in its imperfect glory.” — Eowyn Ivey, author of The Snow Child.
I look forward to hearing your votes! Just put a comment at the bottom of this post with your vote on it. Thanks so much. I will publish the chosen book on Monday 8th June. Happy Reading!
