Book Club Announcement: ‘Alias Grace’ by Margaret Atwood

This month, the lovely Susie from Girl With Her Head In a Book and I read Wuthering Heights together, and both blogged about it as part of a new book club venture.  Thanks so much to everyone who took part!  We have decided on Margaret Atwood’s Alias Grace as our second book club choice, and hope to both post our reviews of it at the end of February.

To whet your appetite, I have included the novel’s blurb below:

“Sometimes I whisper it over to myself: Murderess. Murderess. It rustles, like a taffeta skirt along the floor.’ Grace Marks. Female fiend? Femme fatale? Or weak and unwilling victim? Around the true story of one of the most enigmatic and notorious women of the 1840s, Margaret Atwood has created an extraordinarily potent tale of sexuality, cruelty and mystery.”

Please let us know if you plan to join in, and we can’t wait to discuss Alias Grace with you!  You can read Susie’s post, which includes links to other Wuthering Heights reviews here.

New Book Club: ‘Wuthering Heights’ by Emily Bronte

I have been corresponding with the lovely Susie at Girl With Her Head in a Book of late about starting a little online book club.  We have decided that our first ‘trial’ book, as it were, should be one which both of us have very much enjoyed in the past, and one which we were keen to re-read.  We have therefore decided that our inaugural book club choice will be Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte.

Susie and I would love as many people to join in with our project as possible.  We have decided upon the first week in January to post our Wuthering Heights reviews, so that we aren’t too bogged down in Christmas things, and to give everyone else a chance to read the novel too.  If you’re planning to join in, please let us know!
