Sweet Connections 2012-2013 Book Picks

It's hard to believe that the Sweet Connections book club will be starting our Ninth year together!  I am thrilled to belong to this group that is full of such special gals.  Besides sharing books that we loved and hated, we also share each others joys and heartaches.

Our group only meets one time during the summer and that is to watch a movie and have a potluck.  We haven't done this yet, but I think we have to choose between This Means War and The Vow.

Here is the list of books we selected to read for the next year:

Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghase
Half-Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls
Peace Like a River by Leif Enger
Looking for Salvation at the Dairy Queen by Susan Gregg Gilmore
The Christmas Wedding by James Patterson
Between Shades of Grey by Ruta Sepetys
Tea Time for the Traditionally Built by Alexander McCall Smith
The Sisters by Nancy Jensen
Wonder by R.J. Palacio

We have been reading one book every year in the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series, and Tea Time is the next book up.  We've really enjoyed reading this series together.  I'm not sure which one of these I am looking forward to most, as there are a couple of titles listed that I have been wanting to read for awhile.  Have you read any of these yourself?
