That creative title… that is the name of our book club. Yes, I am in a book club. My first ever book club which I think is pretty awesome.
Kara and I have both been a little well obsessed with The Hunger Games recently. I.LOVE.KATNISS. So much that I had to make it a choppy sentence and in all capital letters. I love her so much that the other day when Tim turned on the TV while I was reading I excused myself and Katniss from the living room because the TV was bothering “us”. So I read the first book and loved it and it was in perfect time to see the movie in theater with Kara which was amazing.
First book=Freaking awesome
So after the movie I went right out to get the second book, Catching Fire. I had some serious trouble putting that one down. I found myself thinking about Katniss and company at work. in the car. in the shower (hmm is that weird??). and everywhere else. So as soon as I got home I started reading until there was nothing left to read. Well that is until I purchased the third and final book. You can’t read the last 2 chapters at different times you have to do it at the same time because you cannot possibly stop after they start to set you up for a huge surprise ending.
Second Book= My Favorite
So then the third book magically ended up at my house (or I purchased at the store- I can’t remember which one) and I jumped right in. I kept texting her and requesting that she catch up quickly because I wanted to talk to someone about it! The third one was probably my least favorite of the three but that by no means implies I didn’t love it because I did. But maybe I wasn’t totally obsessed.
Third Book= Still pretty awesome
But all of this reading and sharing thoughts with Kara and friends at work who have been reading the books it made me really want to read more popular books to discuss with others.
Then Kara sent me a text that said we should start a book club.
And that is when the magic happened! We started a book club. We started a book club with 2 members. We started a book club with 2 members that had 2 very key things in common…
- We like to read
- We like to drink wine
So after some careful consideration (that lasted about 3 text messages) we decided on the name Drunk Princesses Read Too! Probably self-explanatory but we like wine and we like to read and combine that with the fact that we are princesses it just seemed to make sense.
Then I realized that a lot of people like to read and drink wine and have wanted to be in a book club! So my mom wanted to be in the book club and then Rose also wanted to be in the book club! So now our group has grown into lots of princesses who like to drink wine and read!
My general review: The author is just great. Similar to how I felt like the Harry Potter books, it wouldn’t even matter what the story line was because the author was so good at telling the story. The details were so descriptive you thought you were there. Hell I started to think it was real life which is obvious by the fact I thought I was going to get shot with a bow and arrow during my trail run. I wanted to get to know the characters and I could not wait to get home so that I could read!
And now I am moving on (sorry Katniss- I will always love you)…
May’s book of the month is the very popular “50 Shades of Grey”
Here is what I know about the book so far…
- It is like a porno
- Everyone is reading it
- People are embarrassed to read it on airplanes in front of other people so they are very grateful for the kindle and i-pad (neither of which I own)
- Guys and girls alike love this book
So I am pretty excited to read this book! I need to go get it by at least next Tuesday evening when I will be in a flight for a while. I love love reading on planes- it makes the time go by so much faster. I also love reading regular old school books- I don’t have to power it down for take off or landing. Sometimes old school things are better.
Do I want a kindle? YES. I am not an alien. However, since I can’t afford one right now, I pretend that regular books are the best way to read a good book!
I’ll let you know at the end of May what I thought! Hopefully I’ll have some photos of the book club
wine night meeting.
- Have you read The 50 Shades of Grey? What did you think?
- Are you in a book club?
