Spring is in the air! Hopefully the sunshine will grace you with its presence and you’ll be able to sneak outside with our Spring Book Club pick – at least for a few pages.

As you know, we pick books we think you’ll enjoy AND that we’ve never read. We’re not always sure what we’re in for, but we have a lot of trusted readers in our lives who guide us to each choice.

A good friend of Bethany’s hailed The Secret History by Donna Tartt as one of her favorite books. If it’s been on your list for a while, now is a great time to pick it up.

So there it is. The Secret History is the spine we’ll be cracking next. You can order your book here:

The publisher describes the novel as follows:

“Under the influence of their charismatic classics professor, a group of clever, eccentric misfits at an elite New England college discover a way of thinking and living that is a world away from the humdrum existence of their contemporaries. But when they go beyond the boundaries of normal morality their lives are changed profoundly and forever, and they discover how hard it can be to truly live and how easy it is to kill.”

Stay tuned for posts exploring this novel from a few different angles. You can join our Book Club Newsletter for exclusive content.

While you wait for your book to arrive on your doorstep or your library, be sure to check out The Guardian’s, Ten Reasons Why We Love Donna Tartt’s The Secret History. I can’t wait to get started!
