I am in this awesome book club with girls I went to college with and friends/family of those girls. We are a hodge-podge group of women and the one thing we all have in common: We love to read! When we get together we also bring very tasty baked goods or cook related to the theme of the book.
So, the group started off small back in 2007 and we read only a few books that year. We have been reading fools ever since.
So here is a list of some of the books we have read over the years and I will, no doubt over time, write some reviews about the ones that really stood out to me. A offside comment: We have tended to choose books that later become movies, or just happen to be in production for a film or movie. We have come to believe that the books tend to be better than the films!
They are listed in the order of most recently read.
