What we're about

This group is for women who love reading! We meet once a month at different restaurants around Morris County to discuss a book proposed at previous meetings or suggested in the comments. We vary each month between classics, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy, fiction and non-fiction. Please keep all RSVP's up to date for reservation purposes. 3 consecutive no-shows will result in being kicked out of the group. Looking forward to new literary adventures with everyone!

You can find past books we read pre-meetup, here:


Please note that we charge annual dues after a 30 day trial. It's solely to cover the group's Meetup fees. While Meetup has a payment feature called WePay, they take a percentage of your payment, leaving less towards the group. If possible, please consider paying in cash at a meetup event and I can mark you as paid. Or you can pay in cash using Venmo. I would really appreciate it! Thank you!

Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell

Needs a location

THEN She was fifteen, her mother's golden girl. She had her whole life ahead of her. And then, in the blink of an eye, Ellie was gone. NOW It’s been ten years since Ellie disappeared, but Laurel has never given up hope of finding her daughter. And then one day a charming and charismatic stranger called Floyd walks into a café and sweeps Laurel off her feet. Before too long she’s staying the night at this house and being introduced to his nine year old daughter. Poppy is precocious and pretty - and meeting her completely takes Laurel's breath away. Because Poppy is the spitting image of Ellie when she was that age. And now all those unanswered questions that have haunted Laurel come flooding back. What happened to Ellie? Where did she go? Who still has secrets to hide?

Restaurant Suggestions - not a meeting!

Needs a location

Since we like to visit some new restaurants as well as circle back to favorites, please add your suggestions: name, address, phone number & if you’ve been there before or just heard good things. Please keep in mind that the restaurant needs to be open on Sundays between 1 and 4, have easy parking, and can accommodate up to 12 people. Also, they need to be quiet enough that we can have a discussion. Reservations are helpful but not necessary. Thanks!
