After the last two months of Book Club selections being so serious and heartbreaking, I thought I'd try to go a little lighter with the selections this month. Apparently when I try to pick out less serious books, I happen to pick out crime novels (there are three this month!). So without further delay, here are September's Book Club contenders.
This book sounds so bittersweet I had to put it on the list. Not only is the cover amazing, the premise of finding the love you thought you lost because life got in the was is terribly romantic. Could be a feel-good head over heels love story, or could be a tear jerker. Either way, my interest is piqued.
This is my entirely selfish pick because it's the second book in Robert Galbraith's (aka J.K. Rowling) Cormoran Strike series, the first book being Cuckoo's Calling. I loved The Cuckoo's Calling. It was a really good crime novel and I'm happy to see whatever J.K. Rowling wants to write. P.S. There is a book three to the Cormoran Strike series called Career of Evil. Spooky.
With all of the "Hactivism" going on nowadays with hacker groups like Anonymous, I thought that a book about hackers that are coerced into working for the government would be relevant to our current events while also exploring a world that not a lot of people know about.
Adding the final crime novel to the list, Rubbernecker is about a medical student with Asperger's Syndrome that discovers a possible murder mystery that only he believes took place. Now he has to keep himself out of danger while solving the puzzle.
Since I was a little late this month in revealing the books for September's Book Club, voting will be open until September 4th. As always, if you want to suggest a book that is not part of this selection feel free to do so. If you have a suggestion for October's Book Club (I'm thinking spooky, of course!) feel free to leave it in the comments. Happy voting!
