The Goldfinch Read-along


The Goldfinch Read-along

December 13, 2013 – December 27, 2013

Athira and I have decided to host a read-along of Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch. It’s one of the many books we’re hoping to finish before the end of the year, so why not read it together? The Goldfinch seems to be one of those books that everyone has read this year. Most of the reviews have been pretty positive.

The read-along is pretty informal. There won’t be any progress posts to write. There will be some kind of discussion post at the end.

In case you’re a little scared nervous about reading such a big book (784 pages to be exact), read one of my favorite posts from Meredith (Dolce Bellezza) about The Goldfinch.

Want to join us?

    I cannot wait to start! I’ve peeked into the book and it looks great!

  2. I’m just going to share this as much as I can because I love this book so much that I want everyone to read it.

    I still haven’t written my review but I read The Goldfinch in ARC format and LOVED it! My #2 favorite after The Interestings, I think, when I finally write the review and pull my list of favorites together! I’d love to read it again along with you, but won’t be able to. Looking forward to reading the discussion posts!

  5. Bellezza says:

    Vasilly, I wish I would have read it with you and Athira! Still, I’m glad you’re forging ahead with your plan, and I eagerly anticipate your thoughts. It is an incredible book, one which I will be mulling over for a long time.

    Okay. I just put in a request for this one at the library. Apparently hasn’t arrived yet. 😦 But I will try to join in if-and-when.

  10. I am starting it soon. Maybe in time. If I just get my book group book read. Would love to join.

  11. BORIS. I can’t wait to hear what everyone says about BORIS. I will hear about BORIS from many bloggers soon. (I hope I’m not building up Boris too much. He’s a very good character, but expectations can be a killer.)
