The November issue of readergirlz is here! This month spotlights the novel A Brief Chapter in My Impossible Life by Dana Reinhardt. Read my book review. Discuss this book with other readers at the readergirlz forum.
Mark your calendars! The readergirlz will host three live chats at the readergirlz forum in the coming weeks. Come chat with these critically-acclaimed authors:
Thursday, November 15th: Dana Reinhardt
Tuesday, December 11th: Sarah Miller
Tuesday, December 18th: Deb Caletti
All chats will begin at 7 PM Pacific / 10 PM Eastern and last for about an hour.
Dana says the focus of her chat will be: Surprise! The Wonderful and Horrible Moments when Something Unexpected Happens and Nothing is Ever the Same. She goes on to say, "Come talk about the things that have happened in your life that have shaken things up. Or the things you wish would happen to shake things up. Or the things you hope never happen to shake things up. Come talk about why my title for this chat is far too long. Or come talk about anything you want."
Our November theme is Family. After you've read A Brief Chapter, get acquainted with other fictional families in the following books, which are recommended by the readergirlz divas and the postergirlz advisory council.
Dairy Queen by Catherine Gilbert Murdock
The Off-Season by Catherine Gilbert Murdock
The Key to the Golden Firebird by Maureen Johnson
Koyal Dark, Mango Sweet by Kashmira Sheth
We also recommend the biography Cheaper by the Dozen by Frank B. Gilbreth and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey. This is the real story upon which the various movies were based. (The original films were more accurate than the recent remakes. Go Myrna Loy!)
Discuss these and other books at the readergirlz forum.
