A few months ago I joined a book club that one of my young lawyers friends started. I haven’t said much about it because I wasn’t sure it would stick. But when I met these girls and they brought food that was labeled as Vegetarian, Vegan, or Gluten-Free, I knew I had found my people.
In October, we went with spooky reads. We read We Have Always Lived in the Castle, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, and The Mist. Well, they read The Mist. I didn’t quite make it to that one (which keeps me a Stephen King virgin).
I’ve read We Have Always Lived in the Castle before. I read it in print last time, so I opted for audio this time. I may have enjoyed it even more this time. It’s so deliciously creepy.
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow was much less creepy. In fact, it was more of a comedy than a thriller. It was somewhat entertaining but nothing I would highly recommend.
In December, we are discussing Every Day by David Levithan (which I already finished and really liked). I am so happy I found a book club that I am actually enjoying.
