Thirty-year-old Theresa Pellikaan is typical of the wealthy middle classes - with her respectable background, successful husband and house in an apparently sleepy, yet powerful, rich village. She works in a gallery, also typical of her type. When her former schoolmate Ruth Ackermann, brought up in the same village, makes waves with an international bestseller, but none of the villagers ever mention her achievement, not even the literary circle of Theresa's father, famous civil rights scholar Randolf Pellikaan, Theresa begins to wonder why. It can't only be because it's not 'literature'. It emerges that there is a dark secret in the village. Every member of the book club has a reason to keep quiet and Ruth Ackerman's novel threatens to bring the past into the present, with devastating results.

It took me a long time to do this, but I‘ve come up with a year 😁 I thought about my #reallifebookgroup and what books might be a albeit of a stretch for them (out of their comfort zones) and good discussion books.. plus just some likely good reads. 😁 Oh and I‘ve put them in order too... some obviously placed reads, I think... 🤔

Fun project! Thanks @Chrissyreadit for making me think! 😜😘

And fun idea @monalyisha ! #myidealbookclub

mrp27 That's awesome!! The book clubs I've joined over the years all fall apart after a couple of years. The longest one lasted just 3 years. What do you think keeps your book club together? What's the secret to longevity? 2mo
thebluestocking @lele1432 @Suet624 Thank you!! 💙💙 2mo
thebluestocking @Ruthiella There are so many books, I had to go back and look! Our most controversial book was The Actor and the Housewife (great discussion). Some of my favorite books we‘ve read include The Thief, Summerlost, and The Count of Monte Cristo. 💙 2mo
thebluestocking @mrp27 I‘ve had book clubs come and go too. I‘m not positive what makes this one last. I think it‘s probably the leader. It is always at her house, she always does the treats, she brings in new friends regularly, and she makes sure we read a wide variety of books. I think book club magic is hard to find, and even within this one it ebbs and flows. 💙 2mo

I periodically put up a poll asking members of the #2030SomethingBookClub to choose which books should be the next 5 upcoming meetings‘ selections. They‘re all from members‘ suggestions that they email me. What an incredibly fantastic group of books to choose from!

Have you read any of these?
Which ones would you vote for? (You can vote for as many as you‘d like.)

Lillie Only one I've read is Recursion and it's a ride. Enjoyed it immensely. Several of the others are my tbr list. 4mo
mydearwatson I‘d probably vote for _The Remains of the Day_ because it‘s the only one I‘ve heard of 🤦🏻‍♀️. 4mo
RaimeyGallant 1 is so fabulous, and it will get the group talking about perception. 4mo

alysonwrites I love The Remains of the Day! Recently I gave a copy to a bookish friend—it‘s a title I have recommended to him more than once. Then he gave me a copy of The Master and Margarita, a title he has recommended to me more than once. So it‘s interesting that both titles show up in this list! 4mo
Jess Educated will give you the best book discussion but all my votes go to The Great Believers. Loved that book. 4mo
Kimberlone Recursion was so good! 4mo

Hello #GroupW! @lele1432 @CSeydel @arubabookwoman These are some of my picks, though I'm leaning towards Malaysia because it's my hometown and the book is going to be made into a movie! 😁💃🏽 But please do let me know your thoughts! I have other books too if none of these interest you. (Will tag the books in the comments)
Clockwise:
The Mermaid and Mrs Hancock
The Tattooist of Auschwitz
The Sympathizer
The Garden of Evening Mists

arubabookwoman I would love to read any of those, but my first choice would be #TheGardenofEveningMists. I read his other book and it wss great. 9mo
lele1432 @Jee_HookedOnBookz I looovveee this theme of yours!! I almost put in the sign up comments I love being transported through literature! The book set in Malaysia sounds amazing, all my GR friends love it, and somehow I hadn't heard of it. ☹️ My 2nd preference would be Germany. But I'm good with any of these! 9mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz @arubabookwoman that's so great! Thank you! I've also read his first book and loved it! 9mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz @lele1432 do you mind if I call you by your name Kaleah? And @arubabookwoman do you mind if I call you by your name Deborah? 9mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz @lele1432 thank you thank you! OK looks Malaysia is the choice right now. Will wait for @CSeydel (do you mind if I call you Carrie?) 9mo
arubabookwoman Yes please call me Deborah. Is your name Jee? Where in Malaysia are you from? My parents lived in Singapore while I was in college and I visited several times and traveled a bit in Malaysia. This was in the early 70's tho', so it was many years ago. (edited) 9mo
CSeydel The Malaysia book looks 👌🏼 and yes please, call me Carrie 😊 9mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz @arubabookwoman oh wow! I love Singapore!! I lived in the Petaling Jaya area before we moved to the US. You must visit Malaysia again when you get the chance, Deborah! ☺️ My name is Jee Wan but many just call me Jee :) 9mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz @CSeydel yayyyy! Malaysia it is then! ☺️Thank you! 9mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz @lele1432 @CSeydel @arubabookwoman looking forward to all your picks! Have a great weekend, everyone! ☺️♥️ 9mo
lele1432 @Jee_HookedOnBookz yes please call me Kaleah! You have a good weekend too! 9mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz @lele1432 thank you! ❤️😘 9mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz @CSeydel @arubabookwoman was wondering if your reads have been chosen for our #lmpbc yet? Not sure if I missed the post... :) Thank you! @lele1432 Is Baobab Tree the final choice? I'm excited! :) 9mo
lele1432 @Jee_HookedOnBookz @arubabookwoman yes as long as @CSeydel doesn't have any issues with Baobab Tree, that is what my final choice is! 🤗 9mo
CSeydel Sorry I haven‘t selected yet. What about: 9mo
CSeydel @lele1432 @Jee_HookedOnBookz @arubabookwoman Have we exchanged addresses yet? Who‘s mailing to whom? 9mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz @CSeydel @lele1432 @arubabookwoman so so sorry! My fault! I assumed Suvata emailed everyone!😅 I just emailed everyone our info :) Pls do let me know if you can view the file 😁 9mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz @CSeydel Beale Street sounds really good! 9mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz @CSeydel may I have your email add pls? Can't seem to reach you at your yahoo.. Mine is HookedOnBookz @ Gmail dot Com 9mo
CSeydel @Jee_HookedOnBookz @lele1432 @arubabookwoman Ack, sorry again, I found Suellen‘s email with the addresses. My email is carrieseydel at yahoo dot com 9mo
arubabookwoman @lele1432 @Jee_HookedOnBookz @CSeydel I was thinking of The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood, but since it‘s rather old some or all of you may have read it. Other possibilities are The Northern Clemency by Philip Hensher and the brand new (I have an advance copy) Red Birds by Mohammed Hanif. What are your thoughts? 9mo
lele1432 @arubabookwoman @Jee_HookedOnBookz @CSeydel I'd love to read The Blind Assassin! I haven't read it yet. 9mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz @lele1432 @arubabookwoman @CSeydel I think Blind Assassin has more than 400 pages 😅I'd love to read it too if not because of time constraints... I'm leaning towards Red Birds 😁 9mo
lele1432 @Jee_HookedOnBookz @arubabookwoman @CSeydel that's a good point! I was just talking about my reading time constraints lol. Red Birds sounds interesting too! 9mo
CSeydel @arubabookwoman @lele1432 @Jee_HookedOnBookz Any of those sound fine to me. Thanks! 9mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz Can I confirm the tagged books below are the chosen ones for our #lmpbc reads? 9mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz Tagged book from @arubabookwoman Deborah 9mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz Did I get it all correct? 9mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz And on Mar 31 I'll be mailing my book to @lele1432, Kaleah to @CSeydel, Carrie to @arubabookwoman, Deborah to me? Pls correct me if I'm wrong. Newbie here 😅 Question: can I send my book earlier once I'm done with it? 9mo
arubabookwoman Red Birds it is. I think we have some great reading ahead of us. I believe @CSeydel will be mailing to me and just a heads up, I will be moving before the end of the month. I will email my new address as soon as I have it. @lele1432 @Jee_HookedOnBookz As I read the chart, I mail to Jee. (edited) 9mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz @arubabookwoman looking forward to reading all these great books! Wishing you all the best in your move, Deborah! ❤️ 9mo
lele1432 @Jee_HookedOnBookz @arubabookwoman @CSeydel I think you have it all! And Jee I‘m planning on mailing mine sooner as well. It‘s a pretty short read I believe and I want to try avoid any snail mail disruptions 😊 I'm so excited! This week has been chaotic at work so I'm planning on relaxing this evening with my pick! 9mo
CSeydel @arubabookwoman Good luck with the move! I will not mail anything until I‘ve heard from you. @Jee_HookedOnBookz @lele1432 Sounds like we‘re all set! 9mo

monalyisha @Elma We can revisit maybe, when @suvata sets up our schedule? I‘d be totally fine with finding sugar-free chocolate to send! Or maybe there‘s a different snack you‘d prefer? 9mo
Elma @monalyisha I'm currently doing Keto, so my snacks are pretty limited. I'm good with sugar free chocolate, as long as people can find it. Our local Kroger sells it with their organic chocolate, but I'm not sure about other places. 9mo
MirrorMask @Elma How do you feel about coconut in your chocolate? 9mo
Elma @MirrorMask I'm not a huge fan of coconut flakes (although I like coconut flavor) or nuts. I love caramel and peanut butter in my chocolate though. 9mo
MirrorMask @Elma Thanks! That's good to know. 9mo

QOTD: If I we‘re to create a bookclub would you join me?

I‘ve been toying with this idea for MONTHS. I‘d spread it across my blog and Litsy so everyone can get involved and have a discussion on each platform. We‘d read various genres and each month we‘d vote on what we‘re going to read from a shortlist. There would be occasional giveaways too. I hope to start from August. So, what do you think? #bookaddict #booklover #bookclub

ShookBelf @jhod I certainly am and I'm really enjoying it. I've only signed up to The Anomaly and The Possible World at the moment. July is going to be a slow read month for me as I need to read The Stand for #losersclub2018 - a chunkster if ever there was one. 1y

ShookBelf @TrishB I first read The Stand 20 years ago and remember it being awesome so I'm really looking forward to the reread. 1y
ShookBelf @jhod I haven't read The Outsider yet - it is sitting patiently on my TBR pile - but from what other people have said it's a fantastic book. I really like Stephen King but I don't necessarily think his books are horror - more chiller/suspense/supernatural. 1y
jhod Thank you very helpful! 1y
TrishB @jhod The Outsider has some horror/supernatural but I didn‘t think it was too scary (but hard to judge as I don‘t really get scared and have read King forever!!) 1y
Christine11 That‘s great @ShookBelf - thank you and I‘ll keep an eye out ! And @jhod , I just finished The Outsider last night. I‘ve never read any King before but I really loved it and I‘m not a horror fan because I‘m a bit of a scaredy-cat. It definitely had some scary elements but more of a thriller I‘d say ! 😊 1y
jhod @TrishB @christine11 great thanks both!! 1y

What better cure for the ‘Mondays‘ than to receive surprise goodies in the mail!!! Thank you so much for the bag, book and journal @BookaholicNatty 🤗😊 I cant wait to get started on your pick for our #LMPBC #GroupI

BookaholicNatty Yay!!!!! It came!!!!!! ❤️❤️❤️ I saw the Jane Austen book club on your tbr list and had an extra copy of it and thought you would like it! 😊 2y
Dana1084 @BookaholicNatty That‘s so funny! I checked it out as an e-book a few weeks ago and didn‘t read it because I knew I‘d rather have this as a physical book. 😂 Side note- did you want us to write our notes in the journal instead of in the book? 2y

What is Litsy mark up postal book club? I keep seeing it mentioned

mklong @suvata came up with this fun idea and organized groups of four where everyone chooses a book and makes notes while reading, every month you pass the book you have to the next person on the list, and so on, until you get your original book back. Follow her if you want more details about when sign ups are open. 2y
suvata @mklong Thank you for answering her. I appreciate it when everyone pitches in. Litsy people are the best. 2y
Magpiegem Thank you @mklong that‘s really helpful. What a good idea! I will definitely follow so I can hopefully take part in the next round :-) 2y

So many lovely people, good bookish discussions, so many new books, bookswaps. I am so happy, that I found this place. 😊
Caught a funny number today and had to tell you, that you are all wonderful. 🤗
