What we're about

We are a social book club for women looking to make friends in Dubai. We meet each month to discuss a book and there are often get-togethers between book club for things like breakfast, drinks, brunch, movies and all other kinds of fun!

All members are invited to nominate a book each month, the group then votes for which book we should read.

Each month we read and discuss a book from a different genre including:

• Travel

• Sci Fi/Fantasy

• Film/TV Tie-ins

• Self Help

• Romance

• Crime/Mystery

• Short Stories/Poetry

• Young Adult

• History/Drama

• Autobiography

• Comedy/Satire

• Contemporary Fiction/Women's Fiction

We ask that you commit to read the book each month, even if you can't make it to the actual discussion, as we give each book a score out of ten depending on how much we all enjoyed it.
