Thanks to everyone who joined in our last two book club discussions of Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald and Where'd You Go Bernadette. We loved hearing your thoughts on these two novels! With my starting a new job, April turned out to be a bit hectic for Mark and me. So Whitney of Whitney Ann (the other organizer of this collaborative book club series) kindly agreed to turn our April read into a "spring read" encompassing both April and May.
Our spring read will be The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling. As a member of the Harry Potter generation, I was both cautious and excited to begin reading this book. On the one hand, I couldn't wait to delve into another Rowling novel, but on the other hand, it just felt well...weird for it not to be a Harry Potter book. I am so glad I got over my weirdness because there is truly nothing like Rowling's distinctive storytelling ability.
If you want to read along and participate in our next book discussion, run out and pick up a copy of this novel at your local library or book store. The next discussion will be May 27th!
