ABM Book Club: June Selection

The good luck of right nowI’m excited to announce the ABM book club selection for June: The Good Luck of Right Now by Matthew Quick. If you liked The Silver Linings Playbook (or the movie), then you’re in luck. Same author. Does this mean it will be a similar book? I don’t know, guys. I haven’t read it yet. That’s what we’re going to do together next month. Like buds. Get into it. Get your copy now.

We will also be discussing this month’s book, The Goldfinch, on Saturday May 31. A Saturday discussion!!! Whoa! We haven’t done that yet. Normally we turn comments off for the weekends, but I’m turning them on, y’all, so we can discuss. You’re welcome. 🙂 xo. Emma

  • I love this bookclub! Its great to know that I can carve out a little bit of time to myself to read and converse with this online community. I was just wondering if you guys were planning on making a bookclub tab across the top of the website? I didnt have a chance to finish The Goldfinch on time so I skipped out on the discussion post until I had finished reading the book, I found it kind of difficult to cross reference that blog post, when I typed in The Goldfinch in your search engine the post that came up was the initial post introducing the book for May. Just a suggestion! Keep up the great book selections 🙂

  • Oooh, this sounds like a good one! I am totally behind on The Goldfinch, though, I’m going to have to do some serious reading over the next week.

  • Hi, seems like a good time to join this book group…laid up now with a broken foot. I may not make it this month due to reading something now but next month I will…

  • Excited for this book! I haven’t been participating the past month or two because I’ve been busy reading The Hobbit and other things. Also, I love Silver Linings Playbook, so I’m looking forward to reading this.


    p.s. May 31st is my birthday!!! 😀

  • Just bought it for my kindle– it’s a deal today, $1.99 for the kindle edition! What timing!

  • My copy will be here in two days! I can’t wait to get started. I was just looking for a good book to read!

  • Hey guys,this book is only 1.99 for the Kindle on Amazon right now! I usually like a physical copy in my hand, but this is a great deal. I love Mathew Quick and can’t wait to read along this coming month!

  • I’m so excited for this one! Just reserved a copy at my library 🙂


  • I have so much reading left to do of the Goldfinch! Yikes! But its supposed to be rainy here this weekend so hopefully I can get lots done! How are you doing? Are you super into it yet like everyone says?

  • I haven’t joined in for the book club yet but I’ve been wanting to read this book– perfect opportunity!
    I’m planning to pick it up this afternoon. Can’t wait!

  • SO WEIRD! I didn’t even read this blog before going to the library and choosing this book!

  • I actually JUST finished reading this book last night. Promise no spoilers, but it is a really great feel-good book.

  • Woo! I’m coincidentally reading The Goldfinch now and am almost done. Excited to join in on that discussion!

  • ah, i totally have to read this one!!



  • We haven’t sent one out this month yet. We’re working on one for next week.

    I’ve just been making it a priority to announce the next month’s selection earlier since we’ve had a lot of readers request this so they can put their copy on hold at the library or have time to order it if they are purchasing it online. So, I’m happy to oblige. 🙂


  • Me too! I’m actually a little behind with The Goldfinch. I need to do some catching up this weekend!!!


  • Are the monthly emails still coming out with the titles too? I’m wondering if mine have been going to spam…

  • Yay! I was just thinking I need to join a book club. This is perfect. And what an encouraging title. L o v e!

  • Ohhh I can’t wait to read this! Thanks for the great pick!


  • Very excited about this one…I am almost finished with The Goldfinch and I am really enjoying it. Cant wait to talk about it


  • Ooh! I won’t be reading this book next month, but I will try to pop on for the Goldfinch discussion on Saturday. I read that earlier this year.

  • Ooo! Can’t wait to read it! I’m only 1/2 way through Goldfinch so I need to hunker down and finish it. Its just so intense that I need to keep taking breaks!

  • I will definitely be joining! It was so inexpensive for my kindle that I didn’t even think twice about it.

  • I’m reading this right now!! I can’t wait to join in! Also, recommend reading the Rosie Project. They have a similar feel!
