For our August Book club we read The Alchemist by Paulo Coehlo. This is a book that everyone LOVES. Like seriously loves, and for many they feel as this is a book that is life changing.
While wine, snacks and girl talk are 100% a part of our book club (and we don't even get mad if you don't read the book), we do actually discuss the book! And out of all of the books we have read for The B Hive Apiary's book club - The Alchemist we had probably the most lively and in depth conversation about.
We discussed a lot of the themes, the meaning and the impact the book had on each of us and how we connected with the characters. It was a truly impactful book club! In between glasses of wine of course!
Haven't read The Alchemist yet? Here's a brief synopsis via GoodReads:
Paulo Coelho's masterpiece tells the mystical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure. His quest will lead him to riches far different—and far more satisfying—than he ever imagined. Santiago's journey teaches us about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, of recognizing opportunity and learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, most importantly, to follow our dreams.
