I hope y'all don't mind that I always pick backlist books! I am excited to finally get to The Wonder this month! I have heard a lot of good about this book (and a little bad) and think it will lend itself to some great discussion. I can't wait to read with you guys!

Say hello if you're planning to read along this month!

Sue Richardson | 11 comments I read that one. So good. Be careful where you read it. Had to leave the classroom a few times. It made me cry. Movie is good too but as always the book is better.

Are you thinking of Wonder by RJ Palacio about the little boy? Yes, that definitely made me cry quite a bit. This is not that book though. We're reading the one by Emma Donoghue about the little girl who hasn't eaten in a long time and the nurse who goes to work with her. I don't think there's a movie about this one.

Sue Richardson | 11 comments Yeah. I’m glad it’s different. Silly me. I didn’t even pay attention to the author. Guess I’ll have a new book to get. Just in time for school to start!!

I can't wait to join another readalong with you all.

Jill (penwiper42) | 20 comments I read this in June from my library. It was good, but you have to keep up until the end for some of the bigger reveals and story pay-offs. So I will follow along with the posts on this one. :-)

Jamie | 14 comments I've got to finish 2 books I am in the middle of, but will join the discussion further into the month. I have had The Wonder on my night-table for 3 months and this seems like the time to read it!

I love reading "older" books too! I just have so many of them on my shelves! This group has helped me read a ton from my shelves!

Hey all...I will actually be out of town from the 8th - 15th so I won't be on here commenting. Please feel free to discuss with each other as you read this week! I will hop back in when I return!

message 21: by Kim (new)

Kim | 8 comments I found Wonder at Barnes and Noble last night on the sale table, which was a happy surprise. I’m glad to be able to join the group this month. First I have to finish Tin Man (by Sarah Winman) which is a short book so I’ll be with y’all in a day or so.
If anyone out there lives in the Carolinas, please be safe this weekend with the horrible storm.
