New Year Meetup - January 2014

Who needs reality? Let's suspend it together.  January's fantasy poll winner is The Night Circus by Morgenstern.  Can't wait to do what we do best - analyze it to pieces! 

Happy reading!

    I’m harping on this book. Some people mentioned the significance of the clock, how no one connected to it ages, and Celia’s deeper connection to it. I was wondering if I would have liked the book more had I thought of the circus itself as a character in its own right. Because of how well it was written, I wanted to like it. It was all seduction. There is a lot of forplay (a ton), and by the time the main course came around, well…
    By the way, thanks for not kicking me out...yet.

    Thanks so much to Mark for stepping in for me yesterday! I am sincerely hoping to be back in action for the discussion of Serena at the end of this month. Hope to see you all soon. I will post the poll & info for the March meetup shortly.

      and btw, Amazon doesn't know the difference between Science Fiction & Fantasy, either, but rather groups them together. Cheaters.

    I saw some cancelations and my husband wanted to come. Hope that's OK.

    I was wondering if the date would change because of the weather... I'm planning on coming on the 5th. It will be my first meeting. I'm excited :-)

    I was afraid you might feel the need to change the meetup from this Wed. I have a friend turning 102 on Feb 5th and I won't miss that birthday! I will try to come but will likely be late.

    Will be out of town so there is a spot open now. Great read - I enjoyed the book and usually do not like fantasy. See you in February.
