With The Pillars of the Earth ending less than a month from now, it's a good time to start making suggestions for our next group read. That way we can get a poll up, vote, and have plenty of time to acquire the book, or put it on hold at the library.

As I'm starting a class next week, and *might* have to sit our next book out, I won't make any suggestions myself.

Any ideas???

Kari | 19 comments Here are a few on my to read list:
Castaways: Castaways (Leisure Fiction) by Brian Keene
Sharp Objects: Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn
The 19th Wife: The 19th Wife by David Ebershoff

Missy, Gil's looks cool.

Missy Ann (missyanntx) | 63 comments There may be a problem with Castaways due to problems with the publisher. There are (more than) rumors that they are in serious trouble and not shipping ordered books.

Hmmm... Sharp Objects sound like it could be interesting.

Kari | 19 comments That stinks. How did you hear about that? I have it on audio from my library, so it is on my MP3 player ready to play.

Missy Ann (missyanntx) | 63 comments Dorchester is the parent of Leisure and that division publishes a good amount of Paranormal Romance & Romance and I have about 10 blogs in my reader that focus on those and they've been writing about for the past week. Although rumblings started about a month ago. Here's a link to a blog (former Leisure author) with some details.

Measi | 7 comments I'd definitely second The Help. I've heard it's quite good, and it's also on my to-read list.

Otherwise, I've been leaning into more of a classic literature phase lately, and I know those tend to strike a lot of people as dry and dusty.

I don't know how many people have read them, but I'm hoping to start the Sookie Stackhouse novels in the next couple months, too - I've promised a friend I'll watch True Blood, but wanted to read the original inspiration behind the series (even though I know it follows very loosely).

Missy Ann (missyanntx) | 63 comments I LOVE Harris' Southern Vampire Series (really starting to hate Sookie on TV, so I'm going to call them by their original series name). I've been reading them since book 2 or 3 was published.

The TV series is getting more & more cracked out. Yes, I'm still watching it, but last week's episode... gah. Only 3 minutes of it was worth watching.

Christine | 35 comments I've read the first two Sookie Stackhouse novels and they were pretty good. I was planning to read the third one after I finish PotE.

I agree that something shorter for the next book would be good. The Help sounds interesting!

MelissaC Corum | 30 comments I've got 19th Wife and also The Help on my list. I've read all the Sookie novels and they're fun.

I'm going to send out a group e-mail inviting everyone to make a suggestion, just in case this thread is overlooked or missed. Then we'll put together a poll.
