What we're about

We are excited for you to join our book club!

I am an Ohio girl that lived in Texas for 3 years. I moved to Crystal Lake with my husband and 2 dogs in 2017. I missed my old book club in Texas terribly so I decided to start my own basing everything I learned from them. We are looking for women of any age who are energetic, fun, and intelligent that enjoys adventure a good book provides. We will typically meet 3-4 weeks in Crystal Lake and the surrounding areas for dinner to discuss our thoughts on the chosen book. Our meetings will usually be held during the week and we will try to alternate days to accommodate everyone's schedules.

Our books will be chosen by the members. After we read the books listed below an email will be sent asking you to choose 3-4 books. I will then combine all the suggestions and put them in a survey monkey. The results from the survey monkey will be our books over the next several months. The books we will be reading for the next few months are below:

Becoming by Michelle Obama

Ask Again, Yes by Mary Beth Keane

Sold on a Monday by Kristina McMorris

This is How it Always is by Laurie Frankel

Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger

The Dutch House by Ann Patchett
