corner view :: one book
Each month, one book...that's how our book club works. A group composed entirely of women, we have diverse interests, professions, backgrounds, with our one obvious commonality being that we are all married. We refuse to force anyone to host the meetings, opting for evenings lingering in local restaurants instead where we allow the conversations to flow as needed. Some months the book dominates, others it doesn't...and that's okay. It's completely a no pressure, pleasurable kind of club: the moment it becomes work, it is doomed.
Here is what we have been reading:
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith
My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
The Flamethrowers by Rachel Kushner
Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter
The Museum of Extraordinary Things by Alice Hoffman
The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer
Five Days at Memorial by Sheri Fink
Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage by Alice Munro
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Where'd You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple
I loved some, I hated one.
