After the last Reading Circle’s heavy read, I’m pulling for something a little lighter, and more entertaining to dive into. Hopefully something quick and easy, but with tons of heart. Want to join in?
The next Reading Circles LIVE! is scheduled for Tuesday, March 19, 8 p.m. CST, and we’ll meet via Google+ hangout.
Want to see the book selection? I’ve got three choices for us to vote on this time. Here they are:
Where’d You Go, Bernadette?
by Maria Semple
This book is about an incredibly talented, and yet anxiety & agoraphobia-ridden mother, who suddenly disappears one day and her 15-year-old daughter who sets out to track her down. It’s supposed to be highly comedic and a fabulous satire, with a touching and warm mother-daughter relationship at it’s heart. Check out the reviews here.
The Night Circus
by Erin Morgenstern
A circus arrives, and at the heart of it are two magicians who have been trained since childhood to duel a game in which only one can be left standing. Yet Celia and Marco soon tumble headfirst into love, setting off a domino effect of dangerous consequences, and leaving the lives of everyone, from the performers to the patrons, hanging in the balance. This book is supposed to be absolutely riveting and magical. Check out the reviews here.
by Kristin Hannah
Two sisters, brought together by their dying father, are called to hear the whole story of their mother: her life in war-torn Leningrad and and a secret so terrible and terrifying that it shakes the very foundation of their family and change who they believe they are. This one promises to be a tear-jerker. Check out reviews here.
