January Book Club!

Who can believe we are talking about 2014?!

Looking forward to seeing everyone at January's Book Club, our kick off to 2014.

If you are new to GBC, WELCOME! We would love to meet you and have you come to our meeting. Our January book is Necessary Lies by Diane Chamberlain. To buy the book click here: http://www.chapters.indigo.ca/books/necessary-lies/9781250010698-item.html?ikwid=diane+chamberlain&ikwsec=Books

    I had an amazing time. Thanks so much to Jen for organizing. I enjoyed especially meeting Mandy, Amy, Ruth Ann, Jane, Catherine and the other girl sitting to my left (can't remember your name, but shout out to you, LOL). Great discussion as well! Looking forward to February!

    Hi Jen, I am still going to try to make it, however I did change from Yes to No since you have to have a count already. I will just have to take my chances. The book was great, Cheers Brenda

  • Annette T.

    I just put it on hold from my library and should be able to get this book soon... I am looking forward to reading Necessary Lies! I prefer the book in hand as I don't have a Kindle but it sounds so good that I would use Kindle on my laptop or phone if I had no other option! :)

    1 · January 7, 2014

    • Randi Ann D.

      I spent three late nights reading it. It's a page turner for sure! Can't wait to discuss this incredible story with all my girls! :D

      2 · January 7, 2014

  • Randi Ann D.

    Necessary Lies is keeping me up late reading! It's really good to read a good book! Also it's my first new eBook!

    1 · January 6, 2014

  • Stephanie

    Wow. Just checked Goodreads and almost everyone gives this book 5 stars and raving reviews - very rare! I am now excited to read it!!

    4 · January 2, 2014

    • Helena

      I just got it from the library today! I'm excited too!

      1 · January 2, 2014

  • Heather R.

    looking forward to my first meeting! this is probably a silly question but I've never been part of a book club before -- is it recommended that you've read the whole book by the time you attend the meeting? thanks!!

    1 · December 29, 2013

    • Amie

      Hi Heather-there is no need to read the whole book, but do note that we do talk about it, so we will be talking about the ending....if that doesn't bother you, don't feel the need to rush to finish it. Some ladies end up finishing the book even though they have heard the ending at the meeting, and then others-that were struggling, decide it is not worth it! Just come, and have a great time. See you there.

      3 · December 30, 2013

    • Heather R.

      Great, thank you Amie that is very helpful! Looking forward to it :)
