Shadyside Meeting - Perfect on Paper: The (Mis)Adventures of Waverly Bryson

Author: Maria Murnane (title was too long to fit in the Meeting name!)

On the recommendation of a former member during her Milwaukee public radio debut (http://www.wuwm.com/post/book-club-focuses-womens-fiction-okay-chick-lit - some other good suggestions here!) - we chose to read The (Mis)Adventures of Waverly Bryson by Maria Murnane for July.

 

From Amazon.com - (I also noticed this is available in the Kindle version for $2.99 right now):

Waverly Bryson is a successful businesswoman in her late 20s who almost has it all: a dream job in sports PR, two best friends, and a bar where everybody knows her name. What she doesn’t have is a ring on her finger. And after being ditched at the altar, she’s in no hurry to get one. Besides, plenty of other issues keep her busy, including her wayward father, a new rival at work, and an ever-nagging fear that her life is not turning out as she thought it would . . . or should. To stay sane, Waverly makes a habit of jotting down “Honey Notes,” self-deprecating bits of single-girl humor that she hopes to one day develop into a line of greeting cards. Can’t face the dating scene after a bad breakup? Honey, hit the bar, and hit it hard. Beer goggles are the lonely girl’s Cupid. As Waverly stumbles back into the dating scene (no stalkers or jean shorts, please), her personal and professional lives threaten to collide. Perfect on Paper reminds listeners that everyone has had a bad date (or twelve), and that everyone needs a best friend to tell them, “Honey, you are not alone.”

 

We will be upstairs. As a reminder, we have $1 off draft beer or wine as our group special.

Hope to see you there!

    Favorite Honey note so far? "They say you learn something valuable from every experience. Honey, they have obviously never experienced a Brazilian wax or a weekend visit to IKEA."

    I finished the book just in time to find out I won't be able to make it because of a work commitment. I hope to meet everyone soon.

    If you don't have a Kindle, but you do have a smartphone or tablet, you can download the Kindle app for free. Here's the link for the $2.99 for Kindle: http://www.amazon.com/Perfect-Paper-Adventures-Waverly-ebook/dp/B002WGC8JG/ref=sr_1_5?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1372081955&sr=1-5&keywords=maria+murnane

    Apparently, it's not available on Nook at this time, but Barnes & Noble does have a free app for their Nook.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
