Welcome, welcome, welcome! Thank you for being here. Thank you for reading. Thank you for being a part of my online book club. I love reading, but I love reading with others even more. I love being able to talk through every single detail of the book that pulled at my heart strings, or spoke to me.
How Online Book Club works:
1. I choose the book and share it here.
2. You have two months to read the book (or in this case, a bit over a month…sorry!).
3. I will return here with my review of the book and book club questions.
Make the book club your own. If you wish to follow along for book suggestions, please do. If you want to read the books and chit-chat with me about it, even better. If you have a group and want to start your own book club and use the book club questions for that…well, I call that a major win!
Book Club #1
The first book club selection, which I think is perfect for a summer read, is City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert. You may recognize that name from Eat, Pray, Love, or Big Magic, just to name a couple. This book is a piece of fiction, set in New York City in the 1940s, sharing a story of glamour and adventure in the theatre world, while following a love story. It is told from the perspective of a 95-year-old woman as she reflects on her past; a past in which she learned to not deny herself pleasure in order to be considered a “good girl.”
Stay tuned for my review and book club questions at the end of August, 2019. Happy Reading!
