Read up!

The next book is The Sandcastle Girls, by Chris Bohjalian, and it will be hosted by the fabulous Esperanza, beginning the week of March 13, 2013!

What Alice Forgot is still an open thread for the time being.  If you have thoughts, jump on in!  The beauty of an online book club is that it isn't too late, until the next book is up.

The Sandcastle Girls looks at a much harder set of circumstances, and it is based on historic events.  But I really think it is presented well, and that there is unexpected hopefulness in it.

CORRECTION:  CHANGE OF SCHEDULE!!  Because The Sandcastle Girls will not be available in paperback until April, it has been switched to May.  Apologies for the changes.  Thanks to Liz for noticing when the paperback edition will come out.

THE NEXT BOOK is Beekeeper's Apprentice, by Laurie R. King, on March 20, 2013.  The rest of the schedule has been switched around as well.

What Alice Forgot

Greetings book club! Today we begin our discussion of Liane Moriarty's What Alice Forgot. This book provides plenty of good material for discussion as well as bonus Ugly Crying potential. I speak only for myself of course as I experienced said ugly cry last week when re-reading the book. I already knew the ending, knew the story, knew the characters - and still - the sobbing! In my view - that's a good book. Let's get started!

No spoilers -- but this is a good read.
