Our book club meetup in September was fun! One of our newer members, Karen, hosted at her house (with a pool!). We chatted, swam a little, had some rosé and definitely discussed Water for Elephants! Most of the ladies hadn't read it all the way through yet, but enjoyed it none the less! But what's most exciting is we picked our next book!
Per our Book Club rules - we select our book based on the ladies who attend. As well as the date of the next book club meetup. So if you've got a book that you've been DYING to read, please attend! It will definitely be in the running as one of our books! And most likely, its a book that some other ladies want to read!
As always, we suggest that our newest members attend either a Book Club or a New Member Game night! These are smaller events, hosted at someone's house and allows for everyone to really get to know each other! Plus its much more comfortable showing up to a small event at someone's home or apartment rather than trying to hunt down a large group at a bar!
On to our selection for October's book!
This book was on some of our ladies GoodReads lists and has been come up at previous B Hive Book Club meetups as well! So we figured, might as well get to it now! We've selected The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah.
Synopsis: (via GoodReads)
Despite their differences, sisters Viann and Isabelle have always been close. Younger, bolder Isabelle lives in Paris while Viann is content with life in the French countryside with her husband Antoine and their daughter. But when the Second World War strikes, Antoine is sent off to fight and Viann finds herself isolated so Isabelle is sent by their father to help her.
As the war progresses, the sisters' relationship and strength is tested. With life changing in unbelievably horrific ways, Viann and Isabelle will find themselves facing frightening situations and responding in ways they never thought possible as bravery and resistance take different forms in each of their actions.
