I know, I know, where the h-e-double hockey sticks have I been. I haven't told you what the book club thought of Beastly. I haven't told you what our next book was. And I haven't told you what I thought of that book. All this with our next meeting tonight. I'm such a bad blogger, but I was on vacation. It's no excuse, I know, but when you're in paradise, there is no internet connection or at least you don't want one. So here's the nut shell for you:
Book Club Review of Beastly:
We liked it. That was the overall consensus. Some of us felt the ending was rushed and with the anticipation of it wanted to see more. We all loved the chat room and felt it added to the story. We didn't know how we felt about the 16-year old boy living alone in a house and forcing a 16-year old girl to stay with him especially in this day and age, but we understood that it fit with the storyline.
Suzanne Collin's MockingJay. That's right, the book club is reading the third and final installment of the Hunger Games trilogy. We already know one person loved it, will the rest of. Let's wait and see.
My thoughts on the book:
Let's see: I bought it as my travel book to Hawaii, a 15 hour travel day. I even bumped into a US Airways employee who was also reading the book. By the time I got to my hotel, I had two chapters left and the eulogy. I finished it within the hour. I think it's safe to say I liked. Well, I'll tell you . . . I loved it. The ending was exactly what I was hoping for. But, I won't go into detail here. You want to find out more, come back in October for my monthly book review. This book deserves the extra space.
OK. That's what I got. I'll let you know what the club thinks of Mockingjay. I will also try to not let it be so long next time.
Blogs are whatever we make them. Defining ‘Blog’ is a fool’s errand.
