2013 Book Club Picks

About a year ago I joined a book club. I think I can officially call myself an old married woman now that I joined the infamous book club which is a great excuse to eat, drink, and visit with friends. I love to read, but I don’t make enough time so having book club each month forces me to make time for some reading.

I wanted to share the books we’ve read since the beginning. Some were awesome and some were bad. Most of them we found on the internet on other book club picks, so I wanted to give you the scoop on some of our favorites and others that aren’t worth your time. You can find discussion questions for all of these books through Google.
