Speaking Volumes best of 2013

Our on air book club, Speaking Volumes, gathered for a pre-Christmas meeting, to talk about the best books they read this year -- and a few they hope to find under the tree.

Janice Comeau really liked Left Neglected by Lisa Genova and The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion. She hopes to receive The Massey Murders by Charlotte Gray and The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd.

Chris King really liked Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel and he's keen to read A History of the County of Pictou, by George Patterson.

David Fletcher loved the latest Inspector Gamache novel by Louise Penny. It's called The Beautiful Mystery. He recommends the whole series, but especially loved the latest. And he's itching to get his hands on those Hilary Mantel books Chris mentioned!

Speaking Volumes will meet again in January, when they'll discuss Chris's pick, Speaking from Among the Bones by Alan Bradley.

Happy reading!
