So I've decided to start my own book club. I'm sure it'll be a bit of a slow go, but I know there are bound to be other people out there like me that thirst for book clubs through blogs. I've done one before, and am looking forwards to participating in Life of Bon's book club later this month. But I've already finished the book she assigned. So I'm looking for more fulfillment.
So I chose to open my own. Maybe I'll have some fellow bookworms who would like to take the journey with me. The last Monday of the month, I'll be posting up questions that you are welcome to answer in your own blog and then we can all link up. I may extend this to pose questions every week as we read, but I don't want to go off the deep end too quickly.
So you ready for the book this month?
For February we will be reading:
Life After Life by Kate Atkinson
Here is a synopsis of the book from goodreads.com:
On a cold and snowy night in 1910, Ursula Todd is born, the third child of a wealthy English banker and his wife. Sadly, she dies before she can draw her first breath. On that same cold and snowy night, Ursula Todd is born, lets out a lusty wail, and embarks upon a life that will be, to say the least, unusual. For as she grows, she also dies, repeatedly, in any number of ways. Clearly history (and Kate Atkinson) have plans for her: In Ursula rests nothing less than the fate of civilization.
Wildly inventive, darkly comic, startlingly poignant — this is Kate Atkinson at her absolute best, playing with time and history, telling a story that is breathtaking for both its audacity and its endless satisfactions.
So if you're interested, please go ahead and get to reading! I'm also most welcome to anyone who might wish to cohost with me and we'll share the linky on any of your blogs! Just shoot me an email or leave me a comment. I'm always happy to accept suggestions for coming months as well.
