You Voted: 'Yes' For Our New Book

We asked readers and bloggers to help choose our final SheKnows Book Club pick of 2010. You voted "Yes" and we listened!

Our SheKnows Book Club members and bloggers discussed books this year that tackled everything from being left by your husband for the sexiest woman alive to parenting an autistic child to finding a sexy seatmate on an airplane and starting a steamy love affair.

We recently polled readers to help choose our last book for 2010 between four amazing books: Life After Yes by Aidan Donnelley Rowley, Chosen by Chandra Hofman, Hidden Wives by Claire Avery and The Love Goddess' Cooking School by Melissa Senate.

Life After Yes: final book

After tallying up our SheKnows readers' input for our final SheKnows Book Club book of the year, we're delighted to announce the book with the most votes is our October/November pick - the last book we'll be reading and discussing for 2010:

Life After Yes
by Aidan Donnelley Rowley

This is the story of Quinn—born Prudence Quinn O'Malley—a confused young Manhattan attorney who loses her father on that tragic September morning that changed everything. Now, at an existential crossroads in her life, Quinn must confront impossible questions about commitment and career, love and loss. Her idealistic beau desperately wants a wedding, and whisks her away to Paris just to propose. But then Quinn has a dream featuring judges and handcuffs and Nietzsche and Britney... and far too many grooms.

Suddenly, her future isn't so clear. Quinn's world has become a minefield of men—some living, some gone, and traversing it safely is going to take a lot more than numerous glasses of pinot grigio.

More 'Yes' to come

Just want you to know by Brenda v Wyk It is not easy for me to say What lies deep in my heart? How happy I am when you are near me. How unhappy I am when you are not with me Only a thought of you Make me the happiest person in the world And everything you say and do Brings sunshine to my life But I am sure you always know In your own special way What I want to say and understand How I feel. Words really can’t express my love Instead it must be shown In moments that have meaning For the two of us alone So I hope you will see how much I care With every smile, with every kiss And every dream we share.

great book!

Chosen by Chandra Hoffman gets my vote! The debut novel explores the adoption process from several women's perspectives -- from birth mothers who feel conflicted on giving up their babies, to middle-aged women who have been pining for a baby for a very long time, to the case worker who must juggle everyone's expectation. A gripping and realistic ficuitonal protrayal of one of the most heart-breaking processes a woman can experience.

Life After Yes, but of course!

Hidden Wives is my vote! I was so captivated by the 2 young girls and their unusual family life that I couldn't put the book down and read it in about 4 hours. The story reaches far beyond the scope of the polygamist community it takes place in. Any person who has found themselves feeling trapped in a situation that seems out of their control can relate and feel inspired by this book.
