June Book Club - Good Christian Bitches by Kim Gatlin


Good Christian BitchesGood Christian Bitches by Kim Gatlin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I didn't watch the show, but I thought the concept sounded interesting.  When we needed a book for our Romance Book Club I suggested GCB as a fresh/fun read.  I really was!

Characters - I loved the characters.  They weren't too over the top and they just seemed to go in the world Kim created. (1 star)

Plot - It was a good story, I couldn't put the book down. (1 star)

Setting/Accuracy - I don't know much about that area or lifestyle but I really feel that Kim did a great job of creating that world for me. It was completely believable to a point. (1/2 star)

Genre - I picked the book as a fresh/fun read and it was. It wasn't too corny, or to outlandish, there was the perfect mix of solid story and good fun. (1 star)

That extra something - The extra something for me was the budding relationship between Amanda and her "mystery man"  I wish a guy would try to woo me that way! That being said I would have liked maybe a chapter more to see them in more of a relationship. (1/2 star)


There was a 3/3 split in Book Club over who liked and who didn't like the book.

  1. Thanks! I always like to know what happens next in books, and I really would have liked to have seen Amanda happy in a more long term kind of way.

Blind Date with a Book

Last year I put together a book display called Blind Date with a Book.  I found the idea through another librarian's post and thought it was great.  Last year I wrapped 19 books and 15 books were checked out.  We asked that people reviewed the book but unfortunately only two people returned reviews.
Last year's books included:

Went to the 2013 NJLA Adult Services Forum...left with a book list.

Yesterday I attended the NJLA Adult Services Forum (don't worry you don't need to know what it is for this post) and while there attended one panel and spoke on another and walked away with a list of some new books to read.  Since I'm really behind in writing reviews I decided to just share these new books so I at least had a post for today!
