Swagbucks Book Club – 2013 Year in Discussions

 Another prodigious year of the Swagbucks Book Club comes to a close.  Today we will look back on the books we discussed in the past 12 months – a great chance for newer members to catch up on titles they may have missed. I have to admit, I could not have predicted when I wrote the first Swagbucks Book Club post in April 2011 that we would still be here for me to be writing the 3rd annual year in review.  And I couldn’t be happier.

We began the year with the epitome of murder mystery.

And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

February had us in a romantic mood with a touch of fantasy (but isn’t that really what romance is about?)

The Princess Bride by William Goldman

March rocked our emotions with a new YA classic

The Fault In Our Stars by John Green

We prepared for the big screen release of the literary classic in April

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

May had us attempting to become more effective but not to the best results.

 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey

Summer started previewing another big screen release.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

After taking some summer time off we reconvened for the latest from a popular sci-fi author

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

As usual October scared the pants of us

The Shining by Stephen King

Our final group read was hot off St. Martin’s Press

Accused by Lisa Scottoline

Have a safe and happy new year.
