So it's that time again!! Jenny and I are so excited to launch the fourth edition of The Blogger Book Club- and once again, it is over to you to help us pick what to read next!
Our last chat took place on Skype, and was so successful- it was great to be able to chat in real time, and respond to everyone's thoughts immediately. It certainly made me think about The Silent Wife differently! We're planning to continue with this format for the next chat, so please make sure you're signed up to our mailing list (you can do this below) to get our Skype names and join in!
Jenny and I were also chatting last night, and we are thinking of arranging a Christmas Blogger Book Club meet up! This would likely take place in London on a weekend in December, and we'd have a good natter about a book over tea and cake in person. What would be your thoughts on this? Would you be interested in attending? I do hope so, I'm already getting overexcited about this and thinking about places we could hold it...
But anyway. Back to the matter at hand! At the end of the last chat, the girls and I each nominated a book or two to discuss in our next chat- which will be taking place at the beginning of September. As we did last time, Jenny and I will be sending out a poll so you can help us choose our book- and the nominees are....
I haven't read any Murakami before, but I hear his work is beautiful. For a very short blurb on Amazon, this sounds wonderful- a real book to get lost in, perfect for summer reading!
This has actually been sitting on my bookshelf for a while, but is something I haven't got around to reading yet- I'd absolutely love an excuse to though (not that I need an excuse to read, but you know...)
This sounds so interesting, and pretty topical in a lot of ways. It doesn't actually sound like the sort of thing I'd normally pick up, but I'm really enthusiastic about giving it a go if this is the one we pick!
Doesn't this just sound like something else?! I'm so intrigued by this book that I think I'll have to get it even if we don't choose it for this chat!
A confession: I've actually already read this. But I can therefore vouch for it's wonderfulness. It's so evocative, and knowing Guernsey and its history pretty well, it is so perfect. I strongly recommend.

So yes! If you haven't already, please sign up below as soon as possible- we'll be sending out the email with the poll pretty soon, as we'd like to have picked a book by 12th July!
Come on. Get involved. We're lovely, and these books all look fantastic- I'm so excited to read one (or maybe more than one, if we pick one that isn't my first choice!) of them!
