Book Club May 09

You might not know but i have been trying to get a little book reading club going on Twitter so far so good last month we read  'The Brief History of the Dead' by Kevin Brockmeier , which was chosen by me , this month it will all change and people are going to have a go at choosing the book for all of us.

This is how it will work. Below I will list all the books that people have tweeted to me as an option, I will then ask people, and it can be random to choose a book and then direct message me with the choice. If a choice is picked by more than one person then that is the book we shall go for. If none of the books are chosen outright I shall randomly choose two books off the list and then tweet somebody with the titles and ask them if they would choose for us - this person is likely to be not a person in the book club.

The book club is totally for fun you can choose to read that month's book or you can choose to skip any month or never read one of our choices again, you can also take more than a month to read the choice if you wish.

We shall be tweeting online on the last day of the month about your thoughts on the book just read and then towards that date I shall once again ask for choices for next month and so on .
So here goes the book choices for the month of May are

The Aviary Gate - Katie Hickman

How To Talk To A Widower - Jonathan Tropper 

I Know This Much Is True - Wally Lamb

The Island - Victoria Hislop

The Righteous Men - Sam Bourne

Footnotes To Sex - Mia Farlane

The Finest Hour And A Half - Lissa Evans

My Life On A Plate - India Knight 

So there you go, DM me with your choices - which we need to have by Tuesday 28th April  9 p.m. GMT 

and if you are not following me and want to, you can on Twitter @anjeebaby


  1. I'm a reading failure. I've started and not finished the last 4 books I've taken up. Think I'll give this a miss til I get my reading act together.

  2. Ok People this month's book is The Aviary Gate by Katie Hickman

  3. Ive not read any of the books on the list so happy with anything. Will order my book today and fingers crossed it will get to me much quicker than the last one!
