Book Club Joy

I have been a part of many different types of book clubs through the years. I have done long distance book clubs, one on one book clubs, book clubs with my mom, very strict you-must-read-and-participate-or-else book clubs and "We don't read those kind of books" book club. (that one was my favorite...NOT!)

My current book club is your standard, typical bunch of cool ladies drinking wine, talking trash and eating lots of food. We are all the same age, professional, educated, some mothers, all sassy and opionionated and just all around good people. I am liking it a lot!

We come to the table with very wide variety of interests and ideas for book choices.

For next month I am VERY happy to have finally convinced them all to read The Time Traveler's Wife. Very typical choice for this moment, I know, with the movie and all. Darnit, I stand by the awesomeness ( yes, that's a word) of this book, regardless of current popularity.

So you may see a review of not the book but a review of the reaction of my book club ladies towards this book. Then we may see the movie and tear it apart. Oh joy!

Happy Reading!

Hi :) I was looking at my blog stats and noticed I had a few people click through to my blog from your site, so I thought I ought to stop by :) I added you to my follow list, too.
Hope your book club likes The Time Traveler's Wife! A review on their reaction to the book sounds fun, I'm looking forward to it!

I'm with you in loving The Time Traveler's Wife awesomeness! I read it years ago, and just loved it. I'm a little afraid to go see the movie, Hollywood usually mucks up books I love!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and thanks for the follow! I love your reviews. I can't believe you've only been blogging since July...your blog is filled with "awesomeness" too. (And your lil munchkin is adorable!)
