Top Book Club Books for February

According to this morning's Shelf Awareness newsletter, these were the most popular book club books during February, based on votes from readers of 27,000 book clubs registered at
  1. Room: A Novel by Emma Donoghue
  2. Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay
  3. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
  4. Little Bee: A Novel by Chris Cleave
  5. Water for Elephants: A Novel by Sara Gruen
  6. The Help by Kathryn Stockett
  7. Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese
  8. Saving CeeCee Honeycutt: A Novel by Beth Hoffman
  9. Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet: A Novel by Jamie Ford
  10. The Forgotten Garden: A Novel by Kate Morton
And these are the "Rising Stars":
  • The 19th Wife by David Ebershoff
  • Juliet by Anne Fortier
I've only read one of the top ten and one of the rising stars, but I've got several of the others on my list of "must read" books. And I guess I should probably start with Room, since I seem to be the last person on the planet who hasn't already read it.


  1. Great list
    I have read The Help and Saving Cee Cee.
    Little Bee and Juliet
    on my wishlist


  2. I've got Room but still haven't read it. I really should.

  3. What a great list, I want to read Water for Elephants before the movie comes out. I might get to The Help also.

  4. I've read a few of these:
    2,4,5,8,9 and loved them all...the rest are ones that I want to read for sure!


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
