new selections for online book club

Based on how our discussions went last year, we decided to go for an even mix of contemporary fiction and "other."
I have to admit that there are a couple of books on the list that I'm not sure I'll like, but that's part of what makes being in a book club so enjoyable; you're challenged to read things you wouldn't necessarily pick for yourself.

February 2011: Tinkers by Paul Harding (contemp. fiction)

March 2011: Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk by David Sedaris (fables/satire)

April 2011: A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick (contemp. fiction)

May 2011: A Drink Before the War by Dennis Lehane (mystery/thriller)

June 2011: The Imperfectionists by Tom Rachman (contemp. fiction)

July 2011: Some Girls Bite by Chloe Neill (paranormal)

August 2011: A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan (contemp. fiction)

September 2011: Beauty: A Retelling of the Story of Beauty and the Beast by Robin McKinley (YA/fantasy)

October 2011: The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender (contemp. fiction)

November 2011: True Grit by Charles Portis (western)

December 2011/January 2012: Room by Emma Donoghue (contemp. fiction)

February 2012: Loneliness: Human Nature and the Need for Social Connection by John T. Cacioppo and William Patrick (nonfiction)
