Earlier this summer, my friend Jennifer and I decided to put together a Book Club. I had just read Big, Little Lies by Liane Moriarty and loved it. I also knew that it is coming out soon as an HBO series so I thought it was a good book to suggest as I am sure that there would be a lot more people interested in reading it after the show would premier. Watching a movie or show before reading a book is sort of against my religion too so I thought it would be a nice way to encourage people to get the real story down before falling for the story on screen. (It is always just better in the book!)
Jennifer also read the Happiness Project and in it, the woman did a book club on a childhood favorite book. So Matilda was picked and we invited some friends in the beginning of the summer to read these books and planned out meeting for early September (that’s how busy everyone is these days!)
Once the day came, I made a big chocolate cake to serve in honor of Bruce Bogtrotter from Matilda and everyone brought yummy apps and wine. I printed up questions to about the books to be answered and we put them in the fishbowl for everyone to take turns reading.
My friend Katie who lives in a gorgeous SF apartment that puts all other apartments to shame (it is enormous!) hosted and added some cute additions to the event as well.
Of course, with a bunch of girls together we talked about things besides the books but we did do a pretty good job of staying on topic which made me proud! All in all, it was a success and I just wanted to share some pictures of the event and encourage you all to get your read on and host one of these yourselves! :o)
