February's BB Book Club Book Pick:

When Mystical Creatures Attack

Buy now from:


When Mystical Creatures Attack! (Iowa Short Fiction Award)
By Kathleen Founds


This surreal, exuberant collection mines the dark recesses of the soul while illuminating the human heart.

In When Mystical Creatures Attack!, Ms. Freedman’s high school English class writes essays in which mystical creatures resolve the greatest sociopolitical problems of our time. Students include Janice Gibbs, ?a feral child with excessive eyeliner and an anti-authoritarian complex that would be interesting were it not so ill-informed,” and Cody Splunk, an aspiring writer working on a time machine. Following a nervous breakdown, Ms. Freedman corresponds with Janice and Cody from an insane asylum run on the capitalist model of cognitive-behavioral therapy, where inmates practice water aerobics to rebuild their Psychiatric Credit Scores.
 
The lives of Janice, Cody, and Ms. Freedman are revealed through in-class essays, letters, therapeutic journal exercises, an advice column, a reality show television transcript, a diary, and a Methodist women’s fundraising cookbook.

Although EVERY clubie is part of the BB Book Club (as seen on this "Club House" page), to be a BB Reader simply means you are taking a more active part of our "book club of the month" fun... no obligations... just the opportunity to be more involved and be a part of our online BB Book Club.

SO... our "Secret Club" is not so secret anymore as we have made it SO easy for you to jump on board.

Once you are in the book club the benefits and fun begin!

Here's how it works:

1. The BB reader's will show up as one of your book clubs so you can easily enjoy it as you would any other book club. (To check out what the club has read so far, go to our "Past Book Club Picks" tab. To find out more about how we chose our book club picks, go the our "About the BB Book Club" tab.)

2. As an added benefit to you - you will get to know the choice a month ahead of the rest of the BB Book Club. Our BB staff likes to get our reviews in on the 1st of the month to help generate discussion right away and now YOU can be part of the early discussion!

4. All the book club information comes to you so you can easily review, rate and discuss the book with us every month because that is what makes it fun! Although, it is certainly not required....the more the merrier! Join in whenever you can all month long!

And as our numbers grow, we will be adding more opportunities for this club to interact.

* except for the two months we have "The Book Pick" contest winners. 


 
 
         
  Before I Go






Before I Go
By Colleen Oakley
On the eve of what was supposed to be a triumphant “Cancerversary” with her husband Jack to celebrate three years of being cancer-free, Daisy suffers a devastating blow: her doctor tells her that the cancer is back, but this time it’s an aggressive stage four diagnosis. She may have as few as four months left to live. Death is a frightening prospect—but not because she’s afraid for herself. She’s terrified of what will happen to her brilliant but otherwise charmingly helpless husband when she’s no longer there to take care of him. It’s this fear that keeps her up at night, until she stumbles on the solution: she has to find him another wife... read more

Descent
By Tim Johnston
MThe Rocky Mountains have cast their spell over the Courtlands, a young family from the plains taking a last summer vacation before their daughter begins college. For eighteen-year-old Caitlin, the mountains loom as the ultimate test of her runner’s heart, while her parents hope that so much beauty, so much grandeur, will somehow repair a damaged marriage. But when Caitlin and her younger brother, Sean, go out for an early morning run and only Sean returns, the mountains become as terrifying as they are majestic, as suddenly this family find themselves living the kind of nightmare they’ve only read about in headlines or seen on TV... read more

Cryptic Spaces: Book One: Foresight

Cryptic Spaces: Book One: Foresight
By Deen Ferrell
Willoughby sees patterns where others don't. His brilliance in mathematics allows him to uncover puzzles hidden in plain view. When a carved symbol leads him to the barbershop of Antonio Chavez, he finds himself in a world where nothing is as it seems. His friend, Antonio, is far more than a mere barber. Captivated by the famous and beautiful Sydney Senoya, he learns of a musical talent that can reach beyond the living. His new friend, James Arthur, proves to have strange healing powers. Even feisty T.K., their crew liaison on the company yacht, has startling secrets to hide. Determined to uncover the truth behind the supposed seer, Nostradamus, the team finds itself lost across the corridors of time, fighting for their lives. Does Willoughby alone, have the skill to save them?
