2018 Picks

Through October I asked people to vote on what they wanted to read in 2018 for The Quarterly Book Club!

These were the genres...

-Historical Non Fiction
-Young Adult Dystopian

Your voices, comments, tweets and votes were counted and Historical Non Fiction won!

I'm pretty excited about this one so here are all the books we will be reading!

Quarter One:
Lost City of the Monkey God: A True Story by Douglas Preston

Suspenseful and shocking, filled with colorful history, hair-raising adventure, and dramatic twists of fortune, The Lost City of the Monkey God is the absolutely true, eyewitness account of one of the great discoveries of the twenty-first century.

Quarter Two:
Mrs. Sherlock Holmes by Brad Ricca

Mrs. Sherlock Holmes tells the true story of Grace Humiston, the detective and lawyer who turned her back on New York society life to become one of the nation’s greatest crimefighters during an era when women weren’t involved with murder investigations.

Quarter Three:
The Bad-Ass Librarians of Timbuktu: And Their Race to Save the World's Most Precious Manuscripts by Joshua Hammer

To save precious centuries-old Arabic texts from Al Qaeda, a band of librarians in Timbuktu pulls off a brazen heist worthy of Ocean’s Eleven.

Quarter Four:
Quackery: A Brief History of the Worst Ways to Cure Everything by Lydia Kang

Discover 67 shocking-but-true medical misfires that run the gamut from bizarre to deadly.

A new year of books also means new music!  Nathan Haley will be providing themed intro and outro music just like he did for Thrillers!
