Book first, then movie

December's book will be In the Heart of the Sea by Nathaniel Philbrick. This book tells the true story of the Natucket whaleship Essex and their disastrous encounter with a sperm whale that served as the inspiration for Moby Dick. A great non-fiction book that reads like an adventure story.

Here is Nathaniel Philbrick's website

A film version of the book is being released in December as well, starring Chris Hemsworth, Brendan Gleeson, and Cillian Murphy, and directed by Ron Howard. Check it out on IMDb

Spring into Action

Spring hits today at 6:45pm and don't think we aren't all a little excited. April's book will be The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. The Girl on the Train has turned into a surprise bestseller that many compare to Gone Girl, as well as classic Hitchcock films.

The Marchian--Get it? March...Martian...ugh

Forgive my bad pun but the snow is rendering me senseless. Thanks to all who braved the massive snow banks and chilly temperatures to join us last night to discuss You. It may be the most popular book we've done so far.

Next month we will be taking a different turn and reading the sci-fi adventure novel The Martian. I purchased this book on a whim while waiting on a flight at SFO and ended up loving it. The guy sitting across the aisle on the plane expressed how much he loved it when he saw me reading it. I think you'll dig it, even if you're not necessarily a sci-fi fan.

They're making a movie! Sean Bean, swoon...

My Bloody Valentine

Join us this February to discuss Caroline Kepnes's YOU. This debut novel is not what it seems at first glance. A tale of obsessive love and lust that might just have to cheering for the "bad guy", and perhaps--even identifying with him.

See you in February...
