We had an excellent turn out for last night's book group. Thank you all for coming and for contributing to a great discussion!
We will not be meeting in December. The store is too busy and crowded during the holiday season. Our next meeting will be January 8th. Some people brought up the idea of meeting in December to see the movie Blue is the Warmest Color. If you're interested in doing that, send me an email and I'll make some plans.
In January, we're reading Huntress by Malinda Lo. Malinda Lo is a novelist and former contributor to AfterEllen.com. I read Huntress a few months ago in anticipation of using it in the bookgroup.
Here's what Lo's website says about the book:
"Nature is out of balance in the human world. The sun hasn’t shone in years, and crops are failing. Worse yet, strange and hostile creatures have begun to appear. The people’s survival hangs in the balance. To solve the crisis, the oracle stones are cast, and Kaede and Taisin, two young girls, are picked to go on a dangerous and unheard-of journey to the city of the Fairy Queen. Taisin is a sage and Kaede is of the earth. And yet, the two girls’ destinies are drawn together during the mission; the two come to rely on each other and begin to fall in love."
That description may sound a bit cheesy, but it is an enjoyable read!
Thank you all for your participation in the group. As always, feel free to send me your feedback, thoughts or suggestions for the group.
I wish you all happy holidays, and look forward to seeing you next year.
