  1. My book club read so many of the same book! Unbroken, The Paris Wife, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, Sarah's Key, Cutting for Stone were all on our list last year. We also have State of Wonder on our list for this year!

    1. Thanks for visiting Melissa. Your book club was busy with some great reads last year! There are still a few on this list that I hope to get to soon.
      Happy Reading,

  2. I don't belong to a book club (!!) but I've read a good handful of the books on that list. I don't know if I could pick a favorite though. Cutting for Stone was great. I really liked Henrietta Lacks. Unbroken was superb :)

    1. Thanks for visiting Jennifer! I haven't read Cutting for Stone or Henrietta Lacks but they are both ones I hope to read. There are simply too many good books and not enough time to get to them all. Happy Reading!
