Dana’s Book Club Pick: OUTLANDER

Earlier this week, the Atlanta chapter of the Midtown Review Book Club had the pleasure of hosting author Karen White and hearing all about her current and future work.  It was a lot of fun and everyone really seemed to enjoy it.  Coincidentally, one of Karen's favorite authors is Diana Gabaldon, which sparked a conversation among the faithful in [...]

Dana’s Book Club Update

January is all about author Karen White.  I know, I know, it's only December 1st and we're already talking about January.  Well, that's because we're giving our members (and followers) a month off to enjoy the holidays, but then we're back strong in January with Karen White's latest book - THE STRANGERS ON MONTAGUE STREET.  The book is the [...]

Dana’s Book Club Pick: THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO

Earlier this week, the Atlanta chapter of the Midtown Review Book Club got together to discuss BEL CANTO by Ann Patchett.  Most of the group liked the book though a few were not so happy with the ending.  We had differing opinions on some of the characters and their motivations and somehow we ended up having some heated political [...]

Dana’s Book Club Pick: BEL CANTO

The Atlanta chapter of the Midtown Review Book Club met earlier this week to discuss SWAMPLANDIA! to mixed reviews.  We had a couple of full on haters in the group and a couple of people who weren’t sure what to think, but were glad they had read it.  If I’m being fair SWAMPLANDIA! wasn’t my favorite book of all [...]

Dana’s Book Club Pick: SWAMPLANDIA!

It already seems like a long time ago that the Atlanta chapter of the Midtown Review Book Club met with author Joshilyn Jackson to discuss BACKSEAT SAINTS, but the truth is it was just last week!  I usually like to post our next pick right away, but I have to admit the joy and book nerd fabulousness that is [...]

Dana’s Book Club Pick: BACKSEAT SAINTS

The local Atlanta chapter of the Midtown Review Book Club met earlier this week to discuss ROOM by Emma Donoghue.  Interesting discussion.  Some were disturbed by the dark nature of the book and didn’t love it, but all agreed it was a page turner. We’re looking for another page turner this month and hope we’ll find it in our [...]

Dana’s Book Club Pick: ROOM

We had a great meeting to discuss THE HUNGER GAMES earlier this week, with a bigger group than ever!   A few in the group weren't loving how dark the book was - what with the kids killing each other and all - but overall the reaction was very positive and many members have already gone on to finish the [...]

Dana’s Book Club Pick: THE HUNGER GAMES

If you're like me, you have to read the book before you see the movie.  For me it's not so much about which one is better - it's more about making the movie experience more robust.  This sentiment led to my selection of THE HUNGER GAMES by Suzanne Collins for this month's Midtown Review Book Club pick.  The movie [...]

Dana’s Book Club Pick: TEN BEACH ROAD

It's almost summer and that means it's time to hit the beach...  Or think about hitting the beach... Or just read a great new book with that takes place at a beach.  (And has "beach" in the title!) Without further ado, I am proud to announce our book club selection for May:  TEN BEACH ROAD by Wendy Wax. Here's [...]

Dana’s Book Club Pick: HOTEL ON THE CORNER OF BITTER AND SWEET

Last night several of us got together to discuss the March Book Club Pick: THE LACUNA.  Great conversation as always – I think my favorite comment was when Faith mentioned that Harrison Shepard  – the main character – was a lot like Forrest Gump.  He just seemed to end up in the middle of important historical events.  Totally true.  [...]
