BIC book club!

Some of us here have expressed an interest in a book club, myself, @mermadelove, @LCResz, @ZombieMetroAnt, @Mcakes. If you'd be interested in joining, reply below. My initial thought was to mail the books around but if it means that some people can't participate, then I'm all for dropping that requirement.

Re: BIC book club!

Hope we have similar taste in books @Titian06 ! I'm very into true crime and emotionally draining books LOL maybe I should've mentioned that 😂😂😂

Re: BIC book club!

Some books I’ve read recently.

 

loved Yellowface from start to finish. It’s so clever and funny. Easy read.

Gilded Wolves was a good read, but it was hard for me to get into it, but a lot of other people said otherwise. I just thought there was a lot happening that it was sometimes hard to keep up.  It’s a mystery set in Paris in the 1800s. Oh and there’s magic.

i love fiction, but try to throw in some non-fic every few books or so. Cobalt Red was heartbreaking but such an important read. I’ll recommend this to everyone from now until…

Re: BIC book club!

Looks liked my library has The Gilded Wolves. Added to my list. Thx @KrissySM 😘

Re: BIC book club!

Thanks for the recommendations, @KrissySM !  I'll add these to my reading list too. 🙂

Just finished this book. When I was a broke college student, one of my good friends bother let me borrow one of the book in the series. He was a psychologist and he recommended his favorite author. I never finished that book. I now pick up the first one and try to read it. If you like psychology you probably like this author. It has good story but to me just too much psychology background make it slow and painful to read. Regardless it’s still a good book. 

Re: BIC book club!

Thanks, @blackkitty2014 !  I'm in need of something new.  I'll look into this author!

Re: BIC book club!

I've been rereading a lot of my comfort books since I'm kind of in a book slump. I reread the Ilona Andrews's Hidden Legacy and Innkeeper Series. I love both. I finally read their Edge series but found it underwhelming. I need to reread the last books from Patricia Briggs and Nalini Singh to refresh my memory, since they've both got new books coming out this month.

I also picked up two books by Ali Hazelwood- Bride and Check Mate and loved both. I also really enjoyed Fangirl Down by Tessa Bailey. That one is quite spicy so be prepared if you decide to check it out. Super adorable, though.

Re: BIC book club!

David Grohl The Storyteller is a great book. I really enjoyed it. I listened to it on audio book.

Re: BIC book club!

Thanks for sharing, @AMK721 !  I will have to add this one to my list!

Just finished these 2. I can see Holmes, Marple and Poe turns into a TV show someday. Camino Winds is as good as the first one Camino Island. I will definitely pick up the third book sometimes after it got released. Good reads in both. I like these 2. @itsfi 

Re: BIC book club!

James Patterson.. @blackkitty2014 ❤️

Re: BIC book club!

@blackkitty2014, great to hear the Camino series has been to your liking. Fingers crossed 🤞🏼 you enjoy the upcoming 3rd book in the series.

 

Holmes Marple & Poe sounds like a good one. Do you think these books would make for good audiobooks? I enjoy having a book in my hand but am thinking about giving audiobooks another go - not as my only vehicle for books but in addition to physical books. 

Re: BIC book club!

@itsfi @I haven’t tried audiobooks yet but if you are commuting to work I would think this is a great way to go. Bonus Holmes, Marple and Poe would be no different than listening to a Sherlock Holmes short stories I would think 😘

Re: BIC book club!

i am interested!🥰

Re: BIC book club!

@kaitgahagan @kenbb Please jump right in whenever you’re ready. I don’t think we have any strict rule. I normally just list out whatever I finished and what I think about the book etc etc. I got really good recommendations from reading everyone comments in this thread. 😘

Re: BIC book club!

@kaitgahagan, I 2nd @blackkitty2014's comments. Join us when you can. It's been great to hear about what others are reading and also to ask questions if someone's read / is reading a book I am interested in.

Re: BIC book club!

Hey, I would love to participate! 

Re: BIC book club!

@kenbb, we'd love to hear about books you're reading or that you've read. I echo @blackkitty2014's jump on in when you're ready.  

Re: BIC book club!

Just finished these 2.

I bought Storm Watch when Amazon offered a good discount. It’s okay not as good as the previous ones in the series. I reserved The Exchange from my local library along with another 2 books and had waited for months. They was finally available one day after each other so now I have to hustle up 😂🤣 The Exchange, oh what to say about it. It is a sequel to The Firm but seems liked The Firm has all the glories and The Exchange has all the failures. Good writing as always but the story is such a disappointment to me. 

Re: BIC book club!

Hmmm... I'm thinking I may pass on The Exchange @blackkitty2014. Or, perhaps move it further down the list. Sorry to hear you were disappointed with the storyline. 

Re: BIC book club!

Yes don’t buy @itsfi . See if you can borrow from local library. The whole time I keep thinking how are they gonna make this one into a hit movie. The first third of the book has so much promise but the rest of it seems liked doing the same thing back and forth of 1 action (try to not giving away any spoiler 😘). I hope his new novel Camino Ghost (coming this May I think) would be a good one. Camino Island (1st of the series) is not as the same level of his iconic The Firm but still a really good read and short (I like short novel). I have Camino Wind and will start to read once I finish the 2 books I borrow from public library.  If you do read The Exchange please do let me know what you think 😘
