October is National Reading Group Month sponsored by the Women's National Book Association.

The 2009 "Great Group Reads" for the year are:

Appassionata by Eva Hoffman

The Unit by Ninni Holmqvist

The Secret Diaries of Charlotte Brontë by Syrie James

The House on Fortune Street by Margot Livesey

Perfection: A Memoir of Betrayal and Renewal by Julie Metz

While I'm Falling by Laura Moriarty

Out Stealing Horses by Per Petterson

Cost by Roxana Robinson (I re-shelved this at the library today, I should have checked it out!)

Burnt Shadows by Kamila Shamsie

I haven't read ANY of these...but recently purchased The Secret Diaries of Charlotte Bronte. Anyone familiar with any of the above??? I need to add them to my Goodreads list!

I haven't heard of any of those. Where have I been?!

I read The Unit because the publisher sent it to me to review. It's a dystopian-type book with a very interesting premise but there was some graphic sex that kind of ruined it for me.
