i think maybe i’m not cut out for book clubs. i like reading. i’m less into discussion. i like hearing recommendations and hearing what other people think about books. i’m probably also not that into wine. i think i used to be? i don’t know. anyway, over text a good friend and i decided to start our own book club. we were going to call it ‘we read to escape’. we’re averaging about a book every other day. maybe we should call it, ‘we read to support the economy’? it’s been fun being engrossed in something other than kids, or tv. it’s brought back a little sanity, and it’s been so good to consume some books again (especially with a fellow fast reader). these are some of the books we’ve tackled, and a couple more that are on my list next. are you reading anything this summer? any good book recommends?
1- the fault in our stars- had to. cried. might go see the film. doubt it.
2- still alice – hard. my grandmother passed from alzheimer’s. it was good, but tough.
3- where’d you go bernadette- funny. vonnegut-esque. based in seattle!
4- what alice forgot- so many of these i didn’t want to end, this was one.
5- where we belong – besides wild, probably my fave.
6- the husband’s secret – weird, but good. lots of strong personalities.
7- wild- the best out of this bunch! made me want to go hike, and i don’t even like walking.
8- let’s pretend this never happened – up next. i love her blog, i’m hoping the book makes me laugh as much.
9- honeymoon with my brother – i downloaded the sample, and wanted more. promising.
