Book #4

The next book has been chosen!!

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

Hostess: Blythe
Date: TBA

"My name was Salmon, like the fish; first name, Susie. I was fourteen when I was murdered on December 6, 1973.

"So begins the story of Susie Salmon, who is adjusting to her new home in heaven, a place that is not at all what she expected, even as she is watching life on earth continue without her — her friends trading rumors about her disappearance, her killer trying to cover his tracks, her grief-stricken family unraveling. Out of unspeakable tragedy and loss, THE LOVELY BONES succeeds, miraculously, in building a tale filled with hope, humor, suspense, even joy.

***The next book club meeting will be held at the end of October, I will post the details at a later date

7/26/09 Meeting Notes

We had a great time at Olive Garden for Sunday Lunch and wish that you all could have been there!! Here are some notes from the meeting:

I. Overall everyone enjoyed "Keepsake Crimes" and a few of the members are even continuing on with the series (Yay!!)...Here are some of the questions that Bridget asked us...

1. Consider the ending...Did you expect it or were you surpried by what happened? Was is neatly wrapped up or was it unresolved?
--None of us guessed who the murderer was and definietly did not expect the reasoning behind the murder...It was wrapped up for the most part but we all wanted to know what happend with Carmela and Shamus ( I am personally hoping that they get back together, bc I really liked him!!)...We all loved the invisible ink (clever Carmela!!)

2. Can you pick out a passage that strikes you as particulary profound or interesting?
--"Never argue with someone who buys ink by the gallon"

Fun Facts:
-St. Cyril's Cemetery does not exsist in New Orleans
-Oven wall vaults are used in St Louis Cemetery in New Orleans
-Vanishing ink pens for scrapbooking do exsist!

II. Next Book Club Meeting
--The next Book Club Hostess is Samantha
--This month's book is "The Time Traveler's Wife" by Audrey Niffenegger
--Can be purchased at Barnes and Nobles for $14.95
--The next book club meeting will be held at the Rave movie theatre to enjoy a showing of this movie (Time and date to be determined at a later time)

"The Time Traveler's Wife is the story of Clare, a beautiful art student, and Henry, an adventuresome librarian, who have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six, and were married when Clare was twenty-three and Henry thirty-one. Impossible but true, because Henry finds himself periodically displaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future. His disappearances are spontaneous, his experiences unpredictable, alternately harrowing and amusing.

New Book!

The new book for the July 26th meeting is "KEEPSAKE CRIMES" by Laura Childs.

  • ISBN-13: 978-0425190746

  • Paperback

  • $6.99

  • In-Stock at Barnes and Noble

As the bawdy Pluvius parade rolls through the streets of New Orleans, something goes very wrong atop the giant sea serpent float. Carmela Bertrand, owner of Memory Mine, a scrapbooking shop in the French Quarter, is shocked when a body is suddenly handed down - a dead body! If that isn't bizarre enough, her soon-to-be-ex husband, Shamus Meechum, quickly comes under fire as the number one suspect! As Carmela kicks off a new round of scrapbooking classes and designs a commemorative scrapbook for St. Cyril's above-ground cemetery, Shamus appeals to her for help. And Carmela uncovers an important clue in a very unlikely place - one of her customer's scrapbooks!
Hope Everyone Likes It!

First Assigned Book

The first book assigned for this book club is "Marked" (House of Night, Book 1) by P. C. Cast and Kristin Cast...Sam and I chose this book because of everyone's recent love of vampire romance novels and the fact that we wanted an easy read for our first book club assignment...Please have this book read by June 13th...The first Hostess Brunch will be held on Saturday June 13th at 10:30am (location to be determined later). Some of you may not be able to participate in the brunches, but we would still love to hear your thoughts and gossip on this blog!! Please post your comments and questions here!!

Enter the Dark, Magical World of the House of Night, a world very much like our own, except here vampyres have always existed. Sixteen-year-old Zoey Redbird has just been Marked as a fledgling vampyre and joins the House of Night, a school where she will train to become an adult vampyre. That is, if she makes it through the Change-and not all of those who are Marked do. It sucks to begin a new life, especially away from her friends, and on top of that, Zoey is no average fledgling. She has been chosen as special by the vampyre Goddess Nyx. Zoey discovers she has amazing powers, but along with her powers come bloodlust and an unfortunate ability to Imprint her human ex-boyfriend. To add to her stress, she is not the only fledgling at the House of Night with special powers: When she discovers that the leader of the Dark Daughters, the school’s most elite group, is misusing her Goddess-given gifts, Zoey must look deep within herself for the courage to embrace her destiny-with a little help from her new vampyre friends.
