Book Club Selection: May 2014

April 19, 2014


Earlier last week, I enjoyed a relaxing afternoon outside in my hammock, reading a book. Perfection. This time of year simply begs for outdoor living. In my opinion, there’s simply nothing better than the warm sun on bare toes, a soft breeze making a light blanket an added comfort while the birds chirp and the flowers bloom.

This time of year is perfect for a book club. If you’ve never been a part of a club before, I invite you to join us, virtually, for ours! We started the club over a year ago and as we continue to grow, the discussions only get better while the diversity of the books increases.  Some books have been well received, others not as much but that’s the great part about a book club; always pushing yourself to try new books, explore new authors and genres. With that, I’m please to announce our May book:


The Giver via A Bowl Full of Lemons May 2014 book club


You can purchase your copy of The Giver <HERE>


I hope that you all enjoyed The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert, even if wasn’t your style. I invite you to join us on Goodreads for our discussion which will take place on on 4/28 at 8pm EST. If you haven’t yet, we’d love to have you be a part of our Facebook Group where we share book ideas, engage in general discussions and much more!

    my all-time favourite, so glad people are going to give it a chance. a must-read for many in the canadian school system. it is being made into a movie for release this summer.

  2. Ericka says:

    This is one of my favorite books ever. I guess I will be forced to reread it for the book club. Great choice!

  3. Tabitha says:

    I must say that I am really loving the book club. I must admit, not every book has been something that I would have picked, but going outside my comfort zone has been exciting! I look forward to future books regardless of the genre!

  4. Angel Johns says:

    This is such a fun idea! I love to read and it’s great to have ideas for books to read. This has been on my to-read list so no better time than the present 🙂

    What a great club idea! I think I will pass this on to our members as we haven’t read this one in the club. Looks great! Currently we are reading Strange Birth by Julian Stone, It’s been a fun read as it is set in 1950’s NYC and all about TV when it was relatively new with all the networks and the politics. I recommend it, I wouldn’t have read it had it not been for the book club choosing it, but so glad they did!

    I read “The Giver” in high-school. Lois Lowry is a brilliant writer. I will enjoy re-reading this book for book club this month!

  7. Kathy Newman says:

    I am new to the book club. Is there a certain day the book will be discussed?

    • Rachel says:

      the discussion date will be announced later in May along with the announcement for June’s selection. Discussions generally take place toward the end of the month.

  8. ScrapQueenJenn says:

    This book is actually part of a series. I recently finished the series and I’m looking forward to the movie.

  9. Alisha says:

    I read and enjoyed this book in middle school. It was a mandatory read. Truly an excellent selection for the book club. I just now remembered you do this and plan to join the June reading.
