I joined a book club, started by the fabulous Mrs. D, and our first meeting was yesterday! I joined for a few different reasons: I've never been one to A. start...and B. finish a book. So, I thought this would be a good way for me to force myself to actually finish an entire book! I wanted to branch out and read more books than my typical love story by Nicholas Sparks. I need a new variety! And to meet people! I met a couple new girls who are so sweet and I can't wait to get to know them better! We discussed the book and obviously talked about many other things that did not relate to the book at all! And had a few mimosas! I think some other girls couldn't make it, and are going to be at next month's meeting. Can't wait to meet them as well! 
So, Thanks Brit for the idea and organizing everything! 

The book we had chosen to read for out first "club meeting" was
{I read the book last 3 days!}
I just wanted to share the one and only quote I flagged in the book. There were so many more I should have marked for sharing! I'll remember for next time! 

 "There is only dishonor in not racing because you are afraid to lose."


  1. I read this book last summer and it is AMAZING. So touching and great for any animal lover. One of my all time favs. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!

  2. Oh man I'm going to have to go get this book...let us know how you like it!!

  3. Awwwww. :) I love that you blogged about out lil booky club. I had such a great time yesterday and I think overall it went really well. I was so nervous. lol
    The book had such a nice ending...I was happy to see it end the way I wanted. I hate when the ending sucks to a book you loved.
    Thanks for joining us, my friend. I'm MAJORLY looking forward to Water For Elephants.

  4. Good for you for branching out! I'm sure it will be really rewarding. You'll have to let us know your recommendations! :) MademoiselleMichael

  5. I'll be looking forward to your book recommendations... I need a few reads for my morning commute on the train!

  6. Hi! I just found your blog. I love The Art of Racing in the Rain. It was such a great story and I loved that is was told from the dog's point of view.

  7. So glad you have started reading, I absolutely LOVE it!
    I just need to find a bookclub...
    Happy reading x
