Some of you guys have expressed an interest in joining a BCRL Book Club, so let’s make this happen!

To keep this fun, I’ll keep the rules minimal. The last Friday of every month, I will post my review/discussion of the month’s book club selection, and announce the following month’s selection. The comment section will be all yours, guys. I will do a similar thing on IG, so if you follow me there, you will have several options for participating. If anyone has book suggestions, feel free to email them to me; otherwise, I will basically pick things that I want to read (or re-read), and think you guys might also enjoy. I enjoy a pretty wide variety of genres (including fantasy, historical, mystery, classic, literary fiction, non-fiction, memoirs), although I tend to steer clear of “fluffy” chick lit (think The Shopaholic series) and erotica. I’m not ragging on those genres, they’re just not my cup of tea. I will try to mix up the genre every month to keep things interesting – and, like I said, feel free to chime in with suggestions.

OK, on to February’s book selection. Drum roll please …

GOOD OMENS by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman!!!!

This book holds a special place in my heart. It introduced me to the contemporary fantasy genre (hey, it’s probably not entirely coincidental that my own book features a demon protagonist), as well as the crazy geniuses of Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. It is laugh-out-loud kind of funny, as well as brilliantly smart. I couldn’t think of a better first pick for the BCRL Book Club.

Hope you guys will join me in reading Good Omens this month – don’t forget to check out (and share your thoughts) in the wrap up post on February 26.

Happy reading!

  1. Awesome pick! I’ve been meaning to read Neil Gaiman for ages. This one is available as an audiobook so I’ll listen along. Sounds like it’ll make the miles seem shorter on my long work trips!
