Happy Happy Friday! I wish every week was a four day week, how glorious would that be? I am a little too excited about today’s post. In fact, I apologize in advance because it began with a short paragraph and then suddenly turned into a couple of pages by the time i got all of my thoughts out. But that’s because we’re talking about:
Book clubs FTW!!
This is something new that I just became a part of last month and I am so excited for our first book club meeting in October!! The first book that we are reading and discussing is “Luckiest Girl Alive”. It is by the same author of “Gone Girl” but I am getting way more into this book than i thought. I am already halfway through and just started it last night! I love it so far and am excited to see what happens next, I am hoping to have it finished on my cruise next week.
I am interested to see how much we really end up talking about the book once we meet? or if we are using “book club” more as an excuse just to get together, or have a night out, or drink wine, or eat awesome appetizers. I am definitely going to try to read the book each month though since this will be good motivation to do so and am excited about the group either way!
The hard part is going to be choosing good books! If you are looking for suggestions, a few top-rated books are below that may help you get started:
