the future looks bright

Just got back from another book club meeting. Always super fun, with super women who are super smart and super funny. This month was no exception. We took it easy this month and just came prepared with book suggestions to plan out the next 10 months (we also came with lots of food and wine, never a shortage there). We picked out some really interesting reads if that sort of thing interests you. I know I am always looking for the next best read. I've read a few of them so those months should be pretty easy going. I've already borrowed a few as well (about hiking the Appalachian trail, love those stories).

Some on deck on the Kindle:

Our actual assigned list:

August: The Alchemist - Paolo Coehlo (already read but looking forward to a second glance)

September: Walking the Trail- Jerry Lewis (I'm really looking forward to this one. Kindle edition is free to borrow for Amazon Prime members. A brother of one of the ladies in our group wrote it. It's about retracing the steps in history of the infamous Trail of Tears which sadly runs through this part of the country.)

October: Silent Wife- A.S.A. Harrison (ohhhh a psychological thriller. Do tell.)

November: The Book Thief - Markus Zusak (everybody's talking about this and it's soon to be a motion picture)

December: Olive Kitteridge - Elizabeth Strout (Read it. Not a fan. Seems to be popular though.)

January: Thin (author on FB here) - E. M. Mitchem (I'm really looking forward to this one. The sister of one of the ladies in our group wrote this and it looks really good.)

February: Me Before You - Jojo Moyes (I obviously zoned out when we talked about this so have no earth-shattering input, but reading about it on Amazon has peaked my interest.)

March: Salvation on Sand Mountain- Dennis Covington (something about snake handling and it's setting is local. Very interested to check this out.)

April: Born to Run - Christopher McDougall (Apparently you don't have to be a runner to enjoy this. Seems like I've read something by him before. Getting sudden deja vu right now.)

May: The Shining Girls - Lauren Beukes (With a tag line of, "The Girl Who Wouldn't Die Hunts the Killer Who Shouldn't Exist," who could resist??)

That should definitely keep us busy for awhile.
