August's Book Review

As you all know I wasn't a huge fan. I don't understand why they make books so racy sometimes! I almost didn't finish it, but I kept thinking oh, that's the last part, it'll get better. Nope, there were some pretty uncomfortable parts right up until the end. When I finished the book I was like what the heck?!! Next time I read a book like that, I'll stop a lot sooner. It could have been a great story, the concept was totally there, but it was weak. In my opinion, one of the main causes for the weak factor was all the unnecessary rubbish. Oh well, I know no one else finished it and that is okay. Feel free to cease and desist if you haven't. Sorry our inaugural pick was less than fabulous (I know much of America loves it). On the upside mom did say the movie wasn't terrible :) Looking forward to Mom's pick next month!

August's Book Pick

For our inaugural book selection we are reading The Time Traveler's Wifeby Audrey Niffenegger. I don't want to give too much away, but I will say that it a love story about a man with a genetic disorder that causes him to time travel unpredictably, and about his wife, who has to cope with his frequent absences and dangerous experiences.

From the reviews I've read and heard, this is a great read! I'm so excited for our book club and look forward to our discussions. I love you all so much and am grateful to be in a club with such incredible women. I hope to learn and share a lot in our journey of reading together!

Happy Reading!
