Book Club Books

Book club happens when we discover a book we both haven’t read, we both want to read, and we both want to read at the exact same moment. This is always more difficult to coordinate than we expect.

  1. Wildwood by Colin Meloy (it’s about Portland….kind of, in an alternate reality sort of way)

    • Great idea! It was a huge hit at Wordstock. We’ll have to track it down. Tell us if you like it if you get to it before us!

      • I loved it (just finished a week ago). I wasn’t really sure where it was going or what would happen next which was refreshing for a book. I originally thought it would be structured in a similar manner to Name of the Wind with each book being a certain span of time (approx one day or so) but was pleasantly surprised to be dead wrong. It has a fun artistic feel to it and I cannot wait to see what happens in the following books. There were full page pictures in the book as well which were fun breaks although I did find that they were not always situated near the scene they depicted. I can’t wait to hear what you guys think.

        • Oo, what fun. I love books with illustrations. If you’re up for steampunk, check out Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld. The illustrations are gorgeous. I’ll be talking about the third in the series on the blog here soon!

        • !! I just picked it up from the library! Now cross your fingers that Kels gets a copy before I have to return it 🙂

  2. i love that most of these books are also available for electronic check out from the library 🙂
