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. I'd love this to be a place where we nominate our favorite book and others can read it and comment. Something fun for the new year!  ETA: the booklist:

BIC book club!

Count me in!

Re: BIC book club!

Welcome, @TypeATina!

Re: BIC book club!

Welcome, @TypeATina! We are in the process of 3 books since The Hate U Give is being difficult for members to get from their libraries. We are discussing Never Let Me Go and reading  What Happened by Hilary  Clinton. I'm starting a new thread for each discussion and posting the links here- members thought this would be easier.

RE: Re: BIC book club!

Glad to find this! Was MIA for a couple of months due to some crazy life changes, but am so glad to be back. I have all 3 on audible and will gladly jump back in to the discussion! I’ll follow this thread so I don’t miss the link!

Re: BIC book club!

Just finished  Never Let Me Go, separate thread started. I also got The Hate U Give and started on that but if everyone else is still waiting, let's decide whether we want to skip ahead again.


ETA: I finished The Hate U Give today, it was a quick read on a lazy Sunday. But I can wait indefinitely for you others to get your copies. I'm going to start the Hilary Clinton book since I've got nothing else to read.


Re: BIC book club!

@prettyinpa - I have Never Let Me Go, but I haven't started yet.  My motivation is lacking.


I'm No. 43 on The Hate You Give, so I won't be getting that any time soon.


I definitely want to read What Happened.  I'm No. 1 for 1 book.

Re: BIC book club!

Ok, @Titian06, since you seem to be my only consistent follower, we can start reading What Happened, and when you finish Never Let Me Go, let me know and we can start discussing that one. Also let me know when (if ever, lol) you get The Hate U Give.

Re: BIC book club!

This sounds good to me, @prettyinpa.  I'm really enjoying reading all these books so your stuck with me!  

Re: BIC book club!

I've been enjoying reading the books too, @Titian06.  When I was looking for the HRC book in the library this AM, I had to have help because it wasn't where I thought it would be. The librarian showed me a whole section that I've never been in, the "92's" which is all these cool biographies. So I got my horizons broadened by this book club. In addition to hearing other people's opinions on the books.

Re: BIC book club!

@prettyinpa - I am No. 61 on the wait list for four copies of The Hate U Give.  I don't know how soon I'll get the book.  I'll let you know once I do.

Re: BIC book club!

@Titian06-  I'm #23! If it's alright with everyone, lets skip ahead to the next book Never Let Me Go. That way we can kinda kick the can down the road and hopefully by the time we're finished with that one, we can do The Hate U Give.

Re: BIC book club!

I've been MIA on the BIC for a while, but will get back in the game for Never Let Me Go

Look forward to discussing soon @prettyinpa!

Re: BIC book club!

@prettyinpa - This sounds like a good idea.  For Never Let Me Go, I'm No. 1 on the wait list for three copies.  A book can be checked out for 21 days, so I should have this book in a couple of weeks.

Re: BIC book club!

@Titian06-  My copy should be available Saturday, so at least this time I won't be held up by the library, lol.

Re: BIC book club!

@prettyinpa - I got my e-copy of Never Let Me Go this evening.


I also checked The Hate You Give; I've moved from 61 to 50 on the wait list.

Re: BIC book club!

I'm finally done The Fault in Our Stars, what a moving book!

Here's the link:

Re: BIC book club!

@prettyinpa I'm reading "To All the Boys I Loved Before" trilogy.  I might do Crazy Rich Asians Trilogy next. 

Re: BIC book club!

@prettyinpa @Titian06 and everyone else - I am so happy to see the BIC Book Club is still alive and well!  


I have been super behind, but I've actually bought several books on the list and recently finished To Kill a Mockingbird (I loved re-reading this - it's been a long time since I read it and I think I got more out of it this time around) and started The Book Thief (Wow! Let me just say Markus Zusak has a gift for writing - I love this book so far)!


I'm not planning to read ahead in this thread so that I can avoid spoilers, but here are the pics I snapped when I started the books (feeling nostalgic for sunny days by the pool already ....and please pardon the bright yellow toenail polish - it didn't translate well in the pic - lol!):




Re: BIC book club!

@Tamara76- Love your pictures!  We're discussing the books under separate threads.  I'd paste the links here, but my tablet isn't very cooperative about that. 


Re: BIC book club!

@Titian06 Ohhhhh - Great idea - No spoilers! <3  Thanks!

Re: BIC book club!

Yay @Tamara76- you look so comfy in your pool chair with your book. I read that one in the car traveling to a work venue. Boring trip but fabulous book.
