I have to say I’m quite excited about the next book club book. Alli and Dani are hosting and they have chosen The Middlesteins by Jami Attenberg. If you’ve been reading the blog, you’ll note that it wasn’t too long ago that I declared The Middlesteins had cut the line to be on the top of my to-be-read list.
The funny thing is, since it is the next book club pick, I’ve actually moved The Middlesteins down on my TBR list. That’s because we’re not meeting to discuss the book until January and I want the material to be fresher in my mind. This is why I let The Secret History worm it’s way into my reading hands first.
I do think The Middlesteins will make for some great December reading. Nothing makes you feel better about overeating at the holidays like reading about a person who is really overeating. Plus, you know, I think it will be a really good book. Here’s hoping I’m not disappointed!
