July's Meeting

Call it summer, call it a busy month, call it a “non-girly” read….we had a small gathering of Paige Turners this month. (And when all was tallied up, only two of the girls had read the whole book.) But never fear, cliff notes / synopsis / skim reading came through and we had a good discussion anyway.

Part of the discussion centered on another vampire series by an author named Stephanie Meyer. If Bram Stoker’s style didn’t suit your fancy, we highly recommend this series: Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn (coming August 2nd). If you *did* enjoy your taste of Dracula, I would recommend that you also pick up The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova.

Despite our attendance, food was in abundance. Sarah brought an amazing fondue fruit tray…thank you! So we chatted, and ate, and just hung out. We also watched “Down with Love” and played Beyond Balderdash. (Speaking of which, Sarah is a very convincing liar! It’s amazing what you can find out at book club!)

Let’s hope our schedules cooperate with us this next month because our book for August is “Grace in Thine Eyes” by Liz Curtis Higgs. Liz will be joining our meeting via conference call, which is pretty nifty. So pick up this novel, soak up the sun, and enjoy some leisurely summer reading.
