Now is the time of the month where we take suggestions for the August Book of the Month.

I'm going to suggest Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning and...hmmm.... I don't know, I'm suggested out.

Let's see some ideas!

Justyna (blaire88) | 5 comments I would like to suggest The Help by Kathryn Stockett. There is going to be a movie based on this book with Emma Stone. I think it has a premiere sometime in August so it's a good time to read it and see how different it's from the movie ;) Also, it's a really good book :)

Michelle | 45 comments Here are some suggestions:

- Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer - It has a good literary pedigree and is being adapted into a movie.
- One Day by David Nicholls - another book adaptation starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturges. It's a love story and it's about growing up.
- Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell. It's another future movie adaptation candidate. I started to read the book, but my short attention span got in the way. It's very lyrical and well written.
- The Code of the Woosters by P.G. Wodehouse is a good classic humor choice.

I will second One Day as a suggestion, but Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close... I really don't care for that authors style in all honesty.

Tea (quietcoastline) | 106 comments I just heard about Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close being made into a movie and I've been planning on picking that one up soon. I know One Day is really popular, but for some reason it just doesn't seem interesting to me at all. I've already read The Help but absolutely loved it. I was actually just on a local TV morning show with the station's book club talking about it!

I've also been planning on picking up Room andWorld War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War this week since no one will stop recommending them to me, so I guess I can throw those out there as suggestions.

Zoe Elizabeth (Booksatlunch)  (booksatlunch) | 52 comments I second the suggestions for One Day, Room, and World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War. I've been meaning to read all of them for some time now.

Brittany (victoriancrumpets) | 8 comments I agree with The Help by Kathryn Stockett, as well as Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger. Those both look like really good reads!

message 8: by K. (new)

K. (aoutranc3) Ooh, The Help! It's everywhere and the premise seems more interesting than the story The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is giving me right now. :/

Just for fun, I'm going to throw in a suggestion for Robopocalypse by Daniel H. Wilson as well!

I'll just reply here with Darkfever so people don't have to go searching for it, LOL.

Other than that, I have no ideas.

message 10: by Tea (new)

Tea (quietcoastline) | 106 comments I'll also throw in Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter. I've heard it's really good.
