So, I sort of forgot to officially announce what the next Bad Girls' Book Club pick was. It was discussed in the comments of our first discussion, but you may not have all seen that.

I think we'll make BGBC a bi-monthly event rather than monthly, so that means you still have a whole month to read this one.

The book this time is The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. Some of you hate to know anything about the plot beforehand (which I learned from previous angry e-mails), so I won't post it here. If you want to read the description, just click the link.

This is one of those books that people either hate or they love. I loved it. But I will warn you--there's a lot of swearing. There's also a little sex, though I don't remember it being graphic or vulgar in description. And there are some parts of the book that while not inappropriate, are disturbing.

This book stuck with me. A year after I've read it, I still sometimes think about it. I'm going to re-read it for the purpose of discussion, but to be completely honest I almost don't want to. I'll talk more about why when we have our discussion. I'd have to give plot away to talk about it now.

So, get reading! And going to see the movie instead of reading it is cheating (but if you're going to see the movie, call me. I want to go). And just based on the intricacies of the story, I know there's no way the movie can possibly cover the book completely anyway.

For those of you who want to get started on December's book, the overwhelming majority of you suggested The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Annie Barrows and Mary Ann Shaffer. I haven't read this one yet, so I'm trusting all of you who said it was great.

And for those of you who are really over-achievers, February's pick, again chosen because of the sheer number of you who suggested it, is The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood.

O.K., I'll see you back here on October 17th.
