2015 - Revisiting Familiar Authors and Other Choices

Seriously, can you believe I'm already putting together ideas for 2015? I am! For 2015, we'll be revisiting several authors we've previously read and enjoyed, leaving a couple of spots open for that book that everyone is reading, reading our annual classic and choosing from books that have garnered high praise as book club selections.

Authors We'll Be Revisiting:

1. Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel (if you remember our call with Miss Mandel, take comfort - we will NOT be calling her again!)
2. Landline by Rainbow Rowell
3. Big Little Lie by Liane Moriarty
4. The Story Hour by Thrity Umrigar

Two spots will remain open for last minute choices and one will remain open for whichever 2014 prizewinner sounds like the best choice for us.

In February, in honor of Black History Month, for our classic we'll choose between:

1. The Color Purple by Alice Walker
2. Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zola Neale Hurston

For our last three spots, we'll choose between:

1. Still Alice by Lisa Genova which will be coming out in a movie soon
2. The Paris Wife by Paula McLain
3. The Good House by Ann Leary
4. Calling Me Home by Julie Kibler
5. The Life Boat by Charlotte Rogan
6. The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert

Your thoughts? Any books that you'd love to see added to our choices?

*Well, we've already read three of these books for 2014! Calling Me Home is on the schedule but that still leaves us a couple of choices.
