Last night was my first book club meeting of the year. This year I thought it would be fun to share our reads so that you could read along, if you are interested. Or if any of these books catch your attention – on your TBR or ones you’ve already read – be sure to let me know! I’d love to hear your thoughts. If you want to find out more about the books, the pictures will take you to the Goodreads page.

I’m also in another book club, and I’m the one in charge of picking ALL the books! No pressure, right? They need to be appropriate for a church book club but still good reads that will appeal to the group. So far we’ve only had two meetings. We read Esperanza Rising by Pam Munoz Ryan and Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein. Both were very popular. Our next book is going to be Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterley and I’m not sure what we’re reading after that! I need to get organized on that one. Any suggestions would be welcome!
Until next time, happy reading!
