MilMB Book Club

For The Moms and Dads Who Love To Read…The MilMB Book Club

The MilMB Book Club was founded in August 2017 as an online community for book lovers. We started out with just our team members and have slowly grown to include members around the world.

Our book selections are varied in genre and theme. From classics to the newest must-read book, we cover a little of everything. Because that is what our book club is – readers of many ages, backgrounds, preferences, and locations. 

I like to brag that it is the most low maintenance book club you will ever be a part of! Our members can read a monthly selection or not; they can contribute in online questions or ignore them entirely; they can ask questions or never say a thing. If you are interested in joining our book club, click here. You can also find us on Facebook: just search for “MilMB Book Club” and request to join!

Here are the monthly reviews of our books, with commentary from our members and even a few author interviews. Come back every month to see what we are reading!

 

December Book Club: The Alice Network

We. Love. Historical. Fiction. I knew that The Alice Network by Kate Quinn had to be a pick for our book club. The reviews were great, every other book nerd I know recommended it, and again, our club loves historical fiction. It’s an entertaining way to learn about events and facts, especially if you are […]

November Book Club: The Last Romantics (and a Surprise Interview)

“This then is the true lesson: There is nothing romantic about love. Only the most naive believe it will save them. Only the hardiest of us will survive it. And yet. And yet! We believe in love because we want to believe in it.” This excerpt is from the final page of “The Last Romantics” […]

August Book Club: The Library Book by Susan Orlean

When you hear the word library, what is the first thought or image that comes to mind?  I picture shelves upon shelves of books. I see people of all ages and backgrounds. I see the elusive second floor of the main library in my hometown, which seemed mysterious to my child eyes. I smell books […]

July Book Club: Nine Perfect Strangers

When I think of a luxury wellness resort, I conjure up images of calm and serenity. I see spa treatments and carefully curated, nutritious meals. I imagine yoga, meditation, and an overall sense of peace. In short, it sounds like a perfect break for a mother of four. But “luxury” and “wellness” can be subjective […]

June Book Club: The Immortalists

The Immortalists: It is 1969 New York City, and the Gold children are looking for a little fun. Word had spread through the Lower East Side of a psychic woman who can read fortunes. The four adolescent siblings set out to find this woman and seek answers about their futures. They all possess the desire […]

May Book Club: Educated by Tara Westover

Imagine that your very first day of school was at the age of seventeen. This is the age that Tara Westover, the author of Educated, entered her first classroom.  Tara and her six siblings were raised by Mormon survivalists in Idaho. Her father’s fears of the end of the world and paranoia about government influence […]

April Book Club: The Tattooist of Auschwitz

It is a familiar tale. Boy meets girl, boy pursues girl, boy and girl fall in love and live happily ever after. But in The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris, the familiar yet unconventional tale occurs among war, genocide, torture, and pain. It is a story about the Holocaust and the tragedies that occurred […]

March Book Club: At Home in the World

Imagine this: you are offered the chance to travel the world for 9 months. You can work remotely, thus providing an income during your travel. You can visit anywhere and in any order. You are limited only by funds and time; the itinerary and the world are your oyster. Oh, and you are taking your […]

January Book Club: Raven of the Sea and an Interview with Author Stacey Reynolds

Romance novels often get a bad rap. Book snobs (like myself, I will admit) tend to label them poorly and eschew the genre entirely. But Stacey Reynolds, author of Raven of the Sea and this month’s book club pick, does not care. She pointed out the romance genre is always popular and read by many […]

December Book Club: The Perfect Mother

The perfect mother: a title bestowed upon the best moms and coveted by many. This woman can balance everything. Her children are carefully dressed and well-behaved. She can manage a career and be present at home and for all family events; she is expected to provide food for every function and to volunteer for everything. […]
