Blogger's Book Club

If you haven't put together a summer reading list yet, or if you aren't a complete geek like me but are just looking for some new books to read and discuss, then come with me...I’ve joined the Blogger's Book Club (BBC), organized by Vanessa from Entre Nous and TessaJ from My Muse. For this month, we are reading the novel Bone, by Fae M. Ng.

The following synopsis is from Powells:
“In this profoundly moving novel, Fae Myenne Ng takes readers into the hidden heart of San Francisco's Chinatown, to a world of family secrets, hidden shames, and the lost bones of a "paper father." It is a world in which two generations of the Leong family live in an uneasy tension as they try to fathom the source of the middle daughter Ona's sorrow. Fae Myenne Ng's portraits of the everyday heroism of the Leongs--who inflict deep hurt on each other in their struggles to survive, yet sustain one another with loyalty and love--have made Bone one of the most critically acclaimed novels of recent years and immediately a classic of contemporary American life.”

If you are interested in participating, let Vanessa or Tessa know. Basically, all you have to do is read the book and then post your thoughts about it on your own blog on June 26. If you don’t have a blog, you can email them to Vanessa, and she’ll post them on hers. We’ll be choosing the book for July in the last week of June.
