I'll miss you... book club

I'll miss you, book club. 

Whether we're discussing the book,



reading our favorite passages aloud ("dickey-bird", Gabriel Garcia Marquez? GROSS.),

trying on each other's glasses and laughing hysterically,

eating New York themed food (like frozen hot chocolate and black and white cookies the size of my face),

or wearing flowers in our hair like true senoritas.

photos from To Kill a Mockingbird, If You Have To Cry Go Outside, and Love in the Time of Cholera.

Laura and I weren't sure we would get any responses when we suggested a book club, let alone 8! I'm definitely going to miss our get togethers, and no one will ever truly replace these girls, but at least now I know more people like to read than I thought.

 We're discussing MWF Seeking BFF next week (with the author Rachel Bertsche joining us via Skype) and I can't wait to share!

Other posts about book club: The Help, The Great Gatsby & Black Heels to Tractor Wheels, Pride and Prejudice.

  1. I think it's awesome that you found a group of girls that share a common interest! Plus you were able to create friendships that otherwise wouldn't have happened!
    I know they won't be replaced, but hopefully in your new city you'll find some girls that will help fill in their void!

  2. you need to make those cookies again, ASAP.

  3. What a fun book club - I love that you have themed gatherings. And I've got MWF Seeking BFF on my list so I'm interested to hear what you thought...

  4. I've heard great things about that book! And you are going to Skype with the author?! Wishing I were in your neighborhood!
