Te Aroha Book Club

...all done for this year, join us in 2019...

We thought you might all be interested to look back over the year that was, and remember some of the high points that were discussed.  We’ve really expanded our horizons this year:  reading fiction from A to Z (literally), visiting islands, peeking into diaries, discovering that truth is stranger than fiction, and supporting women writers.  Here are the details from the archives:

February : Theme :  Islands – best book: ‘Island House ‘ by Posie Graeme-Evans

March : One-word titles – best books: ‘London’ by Edward Rutherfurd/’Tu’ by Patricia Grace

April: History Non-fiction – best book ‘The Dam-busters’

May:  Fiction U-V – best books: ‘Dark Fortune’ by Susan Udy/’Art of Baking Blind’ by Susan Vaughan

June:  Fiction based on true story - ‘Jack 1939’ by Francine Matthews

July: Fiction A – ‘Cometh the Hour’ by Jeffrey Archer

August: Women Writers –‘Liar’ and ‘Shelter in Place’ by Nora Roberts

September: Non-fiction 300s, 500s and 800s – ‘Einstein: His Space and Times’ by Steven Gimbel

October: Diary-themed – ‘Secret Diary of Charlotte Gatland’ by Patricia Dennis/’Mad about the Boy’ by Helen Fielding

November:  Fiction XYZ – ‘Antidote to Murder’ by Felicity Young/’Reykjavik Nights’ by Arnaldur Indridason

December:  Grisham novels – ‘Camino Island’

Over the holidays, why not read A Chunky Tome (over 1000 pages!!) to get you ready for 2019. Currently at the library we do have a list of ‘big fat holiday reads’  if you need some inspiration. 

We’ll meet again next year – February 1st, to be precise.

 Also, make the most of our Wheelers Eplatform app this summer with our selection of eBooks and Audiobooks.
