Book Club: Age 4

People, here’s the thing:
It’s December, and we all know what that means.
Yes, I’m talking about year-end lists.
Stuff like: year’s best, year in review… This is what makes December great. I’m kicking us off with the Book Club Age 4 Extravaganza. I’ve refrained from doing a quarterly update, and now here’s 6-months’-worth all at once. Can you even handle the excitement? To recap, here’s our Age 3 ½ list.
Here’s what we wild maniacs have been reading since then:
Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates
Giant by Edna Ferber
The End of the Affair by Graham Greene
Animal Farm by George Orwell
Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk
Two of them I loved. Two of them I hated. One of them I’ve read twice, and it was pretty good. (Here are the clues: I reviewed the ones I loved. The one I’ve read twice was written by an author whose first and last names begin with the same letter.) We did a theme thing for a while, reading books of the 1950s, then books of the 1940s. Then we busted free and read Palahniuk, which I gave 2 stars only because its plot twisted in unexpected ways that helped to redeem its overall ickiness. I’m going to stop right there, with ickiness. (No, I can’t do that to you! Here’s what we’re reading next: Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury. I picked it because Citizen Reader is a true believer in its goodness.)
