July Book-The Girl Who Chased The Moon

The book I chose for July is The girl who chased the moon by Sarah Addison Allen. It is about "a girl named Emily Benedict who hopes to solve some riddles surrounding her mother's life.
But the moment Emily enters the house where her mother grew up and meets the grandfather she never knew, she realizes that mysteries aren't solved in Mullaby, North Carolina, they're a way of life: Here are rooms where the wallpaper changes to suit the mood. Unexplained lights skip across the yard at midnight. And a neighbor, Julia Winterson, bakes hope in the form of cakes, offering them to satisfy the town's sweet tooth-but also in the hope of rekindling a love she fears might be lost forever. Can a hummingbird cake really bring back a lost love? Is there really a ghost dancing in Emily's backyard? The answers are never what you expect. But in this town of lovable misfits, the unexpected fits right in."
I really enjoyed this book and I hope you all do as well.

Wow, I loved the Maze Runner. It was admittedly a little on the violent side for me - but Hunger Games I loved too, so whatever - but I thought the premise was really original and thought provoking. What would I be willing to pay to recreate peace in a world torn apart by disease and strife? I don't know. I'm not sure which side I'm on right now, which is great because it makes me make my decision based on my own principles before the author "reveals" which side is which in the next book. I like that.

I'm excited for October (right?) when we read the sequel. :)

I think it would be awesome if we could each post something about our recommended book by the 1st of the month. If you have any suggestions, please give your input. Also, if you are still in the book club and would like to participate, let us know as well. Thanks!

2010 Reading list

I think we should make a reading list for the rest of 2010 and post it on the left hand side. What do you think? For example:

June-The Maze Runner
July-The Five Love Languages

If we each take a month or make a suggestion, I'm sure we will have one awesome book list. I think we should read The Scorch Trials in October since that is the second book of the Maze Runner.

Let me know your wonderful thoughts.

The Maze Runner

I finished this book over Memorial weekend and loved it! I won't tell you my whole opinion since I may be the first one done. There is a second book so I'm looking forward to reading it. Thanks for the recommendation. I absolutely loved it!
