Book club update

Ok, darlings I know i didn't blog yesterday but I have a great excuse... I was book hunting and I was also trying to start the "Being Brazen Books" blog.

Since quite a few of you seemed keen, I think I will try out this book club idea and see how it develops. good? wonderful. I am hoping the book blog will be done by the end of January.

I have been doing some extra thinking on the whole idea and Here's what Ive decided so far...
* Every TWO months I will pick a list of books (4 to 6) - I will consider recommendations for books from anyone.
* Then, you can pick one or a couple to read from the book list
* you have TWO months to finish it/them - if you want to read along (Sometimes im a distracted reader, so i need time)
* Then you may submit a review of what you read, if you want (the best reviews will make it onto blog, if there are alot)
* IF you don't like any of the books on the list you can read anything you like, But then you have to e-mail me a short review of what you read (whenever you finish your book) Deal?
If you have recommendations for future book lists, please e-mail me at


  1. Deal! I join.

  8. Oh nice! I'll try my best but as you say... easily distracted reader. Haha! I definitely recommend Dan Brown and Kathy Reighs! =D

  9. Mountains Beyond Mountains by Tracy Kidder. It's fantastic and a great insight into Haiti which we could all use now after the devastating earthquake. This book club is a wonderful idea, I can't wait to follow it!

  10. Ha. More likely to review a book of my own choosing. =)

  12. Hi,

    Found you via Mel.

    My sister and i run The Book Club Blog and thought you may be interested. We have managed to interview quite a few authors, plus have had lots of book reviews submitted by bloggers.

    Have a squizz and see what you think.


  13. Assuming it's not all chick lit (not that there is anything wrong with chick lit), I'll give it a go!
