Yay! It’s book club day! 🙂
The theme of this month’s book club is authors I love.
I read a ton of books
I was a huge fan of The Devil Wears Prada and The Devil Returns. So when The Singles Game popped up as a suggestion for me, I bought it right away.
It did not disappoint.
This story is about a professional tennis player and how she goes from being just another girl on the tour to coming into her own. It’s funny and interesting. I loved all the characters.
The perfect beach read.
Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus wrote The Nanny Diaries and The Nanny Returns and I loved both of those books. So I knew I would like this one.
Between You and Me was amazing. Since I read it on the beach, I think it took me a little longer to pick up what the authors were throwing down. But once I realized what was happening, I was like, oh yes!!
I don’t want to ruin it for anyone, but I will say it takes an unexpected turn and if you like pop culture, you’re going to be like, this book is amazing!
I bought So Close at the same times as Between You and Me. I just read the other one first. (I think it came up first on my Kindle – no other reason.)
This book sucked me into it in the same way. It was interesting and funny and I kept wanting to know how the characters were going to turn out.
It had an interesting twist to it, like the other book. So if you’re a fan of political life, this is totally a book for you. It’s not super political in that you’ll be upset by the viewpoints, but just a behind the scenes look at what can happen/go on. Or at least what’s intimated.
I loved reading it!
The Woman in White was my actual, in person, book club book.
I’ll be honest. I didn’t read it.
It was super long. The writing was very formal and old school. It required a lot of intellectual thinking (hahahah) and I just couldn’t do it.
Sorry book club peeps.
I made a decision in my life recently. I don’t want to read something that either (1) I don’t like or (2) doesn’t hold my interest. I just don’t have time for that.
So if I don’t like a book, I just stop reading it. Maybe I’ll pick it up later, maybe I won’t. But I can’t torture myself with books I don’t like anymore. It’s not high school. There’s no test at the end. So I just stopped.
Immature? Maybe. But I have so little time to relax with a book, so I want to make it count.
I am a huge fan of Jodi Picoult. One of these days I’ll have to review all of the ones I’ve read.
But for now, The Storyteller is a crazy intense book. One of those books I couldn’t get enough of and couldn’t put down. It’s about the Holocaust and was one of those ones that was so moving and intense.
I was an emotion mess at the end.
