Book Brave: an eclectic book club

Your favorite, all-access book club returns for good this  May.  We heard your feedback and by your popular demand, Book Brave will resume its regular schedule of meeting every third Monday of the month.  As a reminder: the Book Brave book club explores excellent literature of all kinds. Fiction or nonfiction, we promise each selection will make you think, stretch your imagination, and challenge your preconceived notions.


Just over 50 years ago Edward Abbey put out what was arguably his most famous work, DESERT SOLITAIRE. Now the desert tranquility that so transformed him is nowhere to be found and our cultural ideas about who belongs in nature have changed so much that Abbey's perspectives face the dangerous labels of outdated and problematic. But the question remains, is there some magic still left to be found in the desert? That is the question Amy Irvine explores in her work, DESERT CABAL, The Book Brave book club selection for July 2019.

Romance Rebels: a romance novel book club

Bestselling romance authors, Megan Crane and Maisey Yates, lead the Romance Rebels in exploring the much-maligned romance genre. 2019 is The Year of the Trope for the Rebels. Each month we will explore a popular romance genre trope by reading not one, but two romance novels--compare & contrast style.

What does a motorcycle club made up of Russian trained assassins have in common with a woman's unrequited love for an astronaut? A secret baby, of course! Secret babies is the trope the Romance Rebels explore in July, reading Christine Feehan's VENGEANCE ROAD and Sandra Brown's LONG TIME COMING. Get read to suit up, strap in, and hold on!

Can inexperience be sexy? The rebels are exploring that question this month as they test out the Virgin Hero trope. Rather than the sensually experienced men we're used to seeing in romance, the strapping leads in THE SHADOW AND THE STAR (Laura Kinsale) and CARESSED BY ICE (Nalini Singh) have saved it all for their one and only.
