14 in 2014 book club

The 14 in 2014 online book club has returned in 2014!  Our first pick is “Where’d You Go Bernadette” by Maria Semple.  I loved this book, immediately upon beginning.  Turns out that the author worked in writing sitcoms in her past and this book reads just like that; fast-paced, hilarious, touching and addictive!  And the […]

Thoughts on 2014…

Resolutions and Goals for 2014

I am reforming the way that I look at New Years Resolutions this year and making a list of achievable goals instead.  After all, no one really wants to start something so radical in the new year, only to be disappointed.  Here are my 6 achievable goals for 2014. Here’s my list, based on this […]

September’s Book Club Book: “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?” By Mindy Kaling

20131020-205409.jpg

Guest post written by Kate. “I thoroughly enjoyed Mindy Kaling’s first book, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? As I read the book, I heard her voice in my head for each and every word. All last year Hulu kept recommending her show to me, and I kept thinking, “I know I am going to […]

July’s Book Club Book: “The Light Between Oceans”

"The Light Between Oceans"

So, did everyone finish reading “The Light Between Oceans” and have a little time to recover? All I have to say is that our August book (“The Secret Keeper”) better be happier! I knew I was done for as soon as I met the main characters, Izzy (really!??) and Tom.  However, despite the UBER depressing […]

May’s Book Club Book: “The Normal Bar”

I’ll be the first to admit, that I was very skeptical when Jessie picked this month’s book.  I fear the self-help section of the library and often get giggly and immature about relationship books in general.  However, “The Normal Bar” surprised me with its practical advice, interesting statistics and constructive, interesting ideas for increasing “normal” […]

Book Club: “Gone Girl”

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

“Gone Girl” rocked my scaredy-cat socks off! Almost every single “twenty-something” that I have asked has said something along the lines of “I couldn’t put it down” or “wow, it was addictive” in regards to this dysfunctional marriage murder thriller. Read more here about what the New York Times has to say about it. What […]

Book Club: “Flight Behavior”

Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver

I’m going to have to admit to you Book Club ladies, that I cannot, for the life of me, get through Flight Behavior! I think the details about the butterflies are super interesting but I am getting lost in all of the description. I will keep trying, promise! I tried to read “Poisonwood Bible” last […]
