    1. The Dirty Book Club by Lisi Harrison is a 2017 Gallery Books publication.A lighthearted and often hilarious story about the special bonds of friendship! Now, don’t let the title of this book fool you. This is not an erotic novel, at all. Instead, this is a book about relationships, focusing on the bond between women and true, enduring friendship. The story begins in 1962 with the birth of ‘The Dirty Book Club’. A group of friends, all of whom have a different set of circumstances to cope w [...]

    4. I had to read about 30% of this before I got totally invested in the characters but turned out to be a fun and quick romp about friendships and family relationships. Every once in a while a bit of raunchy content would arise but don't let the title turn you off of reading this. The books read in the club weren't what one would call "dirty"--unless you think Jong's FEAR OF FLYING, 50 SHADES OF GREY, and HOW TO MAKE LOVE LIKE A PORN STAR are on the prurient side--OK, the last one might be consider [...]

    5. There are a few things I dislike:Watching any season of American Horror Story without The Supreme Jessica Lange.A PSL with no whipped cream on top.Waiting for a new season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.And most importantly . . . being super excited about a book, loving the first few chapters and then . . . hating the rest.I began The Dirty Book Club on a wonderfully quiet Tuesday night. I grabbed my pint of Peanut Butter Swirl Ben & Jerry's, put the baby to bed, took my bra off, an [...]

    6. This review was originally posted on (un)Conventional BookviewsThe Dirty Book Club is all about female friendships and empowerment, and how books may be the way to both! Story: M.J. thought she had it all, but living her life not fully knowing what she wanted didn't make her happy The Dirty Book Club changed all that. At first, she had some awkward interactions with some of the women her own age, but she felt like people in LA were so very different from the New Yorkers she was used to.The Dirty [...]

    7. Four women who unknowingly need each other are brought together by Gloria Golden and her group of lifelong friends. They grow closer to each other and discover more about themselves over a summer of reading "dirty books".

    8. 3.5 stars You know how you read a book that isn't the most well written, and/or the plot may meander a little bit, but it hits you in the feels anyway? Yeah. This is the book. Something about the characters, the women of this story, captivated me to the point that I may want a sequel. 🤷😀

    9. The Dirty Book Club is all about female friendships and empowerment, and how books may be the way to both!

    10. I want to give a huge thank you to NetGalley and Gallery Books for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an unbiased and honest review.Synopsis: M.J. is a workaholic trying to hide from her past by burying herself in work.

    11. I was champing at the bit (read the book and you'll know why I said that) for this book since I first saw it on years ago. I was incredibly intrigued by one of my favorite authors from when I was younger writing something that sounded completely opposite. I laughed a lot at the antics of this friend group, especially the scene in the hotel room. I loved the connections to the original DBC and how they chose these girls. Just a really enjoyable book for me! So glad I didn't wait to read it.

    12. I am a HUGE fan of Book Clubs. I think everyone should be in one, and I'd be in 20 if I could find enough people to be in them with me. So, this book by bestselling author Lisi Harrison, of YA Monster High and The Clique fame, really caught my eye. A big Thank You to Netgalley and Gallery Books for sending it my way!!The Dirty Book Club starts off by introducing us to a group of girlfriends in the 1960's who start a secret Dirty Book Club. They will wrap their books with the cover of a prim and [...]

    13. The Dirty Book Club was my first novel by Lisi Harrison, and if the rest of her novels are anything like this one well then I'm going to need to read them all. Within the first few pages, I was totally hooked. M.J. is such a tragic character and I found myself instantly hoping she would find fast friends and bond to a group just like Gloria's. This novel pulled at my heart and made me think of my best friends constantly. It reminded me so much of an adult/rated R version of The Sisterhood of the [...]

    14. Told in 3rd person past, this tale focuses on the lives of the women in the DBC, a group that has been together some forty odd years, and has used the member’s unwillingness and struggles with society’s expectations of what they should be, as they work toward the women they want to be. Few rules are set in stone, but they are all expected to trust one another on their journey to inner peace and love, and that means maintaining friendships and coping with difficulties. Of course, they must be [...]

    15. I received an ARC of The Dirty Book Club from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Though the title may turn some away, or draw others to it as it were, for very different reasons, there is nothing "dirty" about this book. It's a book about female friendship: its purpose, its benefit, and its place within a very male-centric world. M.J. is at an impasse after an expected promotion takes an unexpected turn. Feeling lost and confused, and still emotionally reeling from familial tragedy, she [...]

    16. The idea sounded good, but the characters were so lame that I couldn't like any of them, let alone even care about them. Basics: 4 women are drawn together by the former Dirty Book Club members and are to carry on the tradition of monthly dirty books for their meetings. Even the characters didn't want to be there. One thing annoyed me from the start and that was that it took until chapter 9 before we even got to the book club.All the women and most of the men had such shallow development that I [...]

    17. Older generation of women (Gloria, Dot, Liddy, and Marjorie) pass their Dirty Book Club—and its books and rituals—onto a younger generation (M.J Jules, Britt, and Addie). The premise of this story was intriguing but, overall, I found it too light and fluffy. I would, however, recommend it for those who enjoy lighter reads as there were some touching moments and amusing banter.Thank you to the author, the publisher, and a Bookish Giveaway for a free copy of this book! All opinions are my own. [...]

    18. *I would like to thank NetGalley and Gallery Books for providing me this book in exchange for an honest review.*I haven’t read any books from NetGalley in a while, so I requested this book, The Dirty Book Club by Lisi Harrison, about two weeks ago as a “get me back into reading ARCs” type of read. The Dirty Book Club is a 320-page women’s fiction novel that alternatively flashes back to the 1960s and primarily uses a modern-day narration. I give this book 2/5 stars.But before I review th [...]

    20. Read all my reviews at: brainfartsandbooks.wordpressWhen I first got my hands on this book, I was ready to get taken away on a kinky 50 Shades of Fantasy kind of ride. Little did I know, this book would really be a book about friendships, new and old, and the togetherness that help to heal two separate groups of women. M.J. is a magazine editor who moves to California to live with her doctor boyfriend. She meets a spunky older lady named Gloria who turns out to be her next door neighbor AND the [...]

    21. This book was so fun! Four life-long friends have a book club starting in the 1950s (I think?), and they only read “dirty” books. They’re young women at the start, and they’re trying to learn about sex and be a little bit naughty. It’s terrific. And then there is a new generation, and they hand the book club off to them in a way. I cannot remember the details of the characters or many of the books they read, but I loved the way this book was laid out, and I loved the discussions. I was [...]

    22. I am a big fan of Lisi Harrison's YA series, The Clique, and was excited to be able to read her first foray into adult fiction.Not disappointed! I loved this book. MJ is a New York gal who finds herself living in California with her boyfriend after her boss shares her big promotion with another employee. MJ wasn't willing to share and decided to stop living on the opposite coast of her boyfriend. He lives next door to Gloria whom MJ becomes friends with. Gloria and her three best friends have be [...]

    23. I wanted this book as soon as I saw it on Netgalley! Dirty Book Club? Were we all going to read Fifty Shades and then talk about it?This group of women started in the 60's. Reading banned or dirty books hidden behind the oh so prim cover of a domestic how to book. They are unfiltered and learn more about themselves and their sexuality than any book club I have ever been a part of!And along the way they are there for each other through everything. Thick or thin, they take care of each other.When [...]

    24. Just a thought. That's the most simple cover I've ever seen.A paper bag and a card written the title of the book and its author on it. Effortless.

    25. This is my first read of Lisi Harrison. I requested this arc on NetGalley because I loved the premise of the book club and multiple generations of friendship. So refreshing to find a book in romance about friendships. Sounded like a fun read. Definitely intrigued me.The witty banter between characters was fantastic. Seriously my favorite thing about the book. And the purring funny. The flash between the original DBC members and the current day main character M.J. was really well written. Once I [...]

    26. I received an ARC of this book from Netgalley for free in exchange for an honest review.The Dirty Book Club was the perfect antidote for a humdrum day. Lisi Harrison has written a book about friendship that made me giggle and wish that I could hang out the with ladies (both old and young) of the Dirty Book Club. The original members of the Dirty Book Club were four women who had been friends since high school and knew each other better than anyone else knew them. The revamped Dirty Book Club is [...]

    27. M.J. leaves her stressful job, which she has given all of her time and energy, and follows her boyfriend to California. She ends up being bored out of her mind and she befriends her elderly neighbor. This neighbor has a secret!Well, this book is exactly what it says. It is about a secret book club. This book club is unique in that it only reads dirty books and it is as funny as it sounds. The club also comes complete with a secret key, secret rituals and anonymity.For this to be the author’s d [...]
