Something a little different from Stephen King, but definitely worth the read.

I read this a while back and LOVED It! Time to read it again for book club ❤️

Scochrane26 She called in & talked to our book club. 2w
Book_Fairy_Mary @Scochrane26 whaaaaa? That is AWESOME! 1w
Scochrane26 @Book_Fairy_Mary Well, she is from my area, think she wanted to promote the book & because we are in Ky. I‘ve met her a couple of times at ky book fair. A librarian does my book club & contacted her. (edited) 1w
jillrhudy Wonder if she‘d talk to ours? We would love it. We‘re thinking of making her book our next pick. 3d

Okay, okay. It took me forever (I've been busy) but I FINALLY finished The Shining! Holy guacamole, y'all! I'm so glad I picked it up! So many differences from the movie, so well written, so flippin clever! Now I'm dying to read Doctor Sleep!

A Killing in the Hills | Julia Keller

Bailedbailed

I don't quit books. I just don't. I quit this one. Keller has a beautiful voice & is no doubt a talented writer, but this book frustrated me. 50% of the way through & she's still describing every little detail, telling the back story of every minor character, repeating herself over & over, yet the plot has gone NO WHERE! When I realized I'd given up & was merely skimming, I decided to bail.

Tonight's book club was a success! We had a small group and I got nervous when conversation lulled a little, but, overall, I think it went well!

If you haven't read The Husband's Secret, I HIGHLY recommend it!

Well, hell. I can see some people digging this story & I really didn't hate it, but I also didn't like it. The characters aren't relatable or even enjoyable, & the plot is so predictable I just started skimming paragraphs after a while.

My Library is kicking off a new Book Club next week & this gal gets to facilitate. Even though I'm terrified no one will show up, I'm super excited to have the opportunity to run this group. Our first book is one I love : The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty.

SamanthaMarie That is exciting!! I so hope you have a good turn out. I run a book Club too and definitely turn out (at least of those who have actually read the book) is low but every now and then a book discussion is fabulous and I keep on pressing on!! :) 3mo
Book_Fairy_Mary @SamanthaMarie thank you! I really don't know what to expect, but I'm trying to stay positive! I'm terribly nervous about starting the discussion, even though I was an English teacher for 10 years. 🤣 I guess it's just different with adults/peers. 3mo
Scochrane26 I started going to my library‘s book club in the winter & really like it. I‘m the youngest one there. My library also has another club they do where they recommend books according to a theme that month, & we talk about what we‘re reading. They do a podcast about the recommended books. 3mo
Book_Fairy_Mary @Scochrane26 I love the idea of doing a podcast! That would be so fun! Do you feel like everyone has an opportunity to freely discuss the book at your book club or do some members dominate the discussion? 3mo
Scochrane26 @Book_Fairy_Mary we all have a chance to discuss the book. The librarian sometimes has a list of discussion questions, but we tend to hit on the important stuff without the questions. This is my first book club. I‘m sure you‘ll do great. 3mo

Definitely not for everyone, but apparently right up my alley. Lots of creepy "what the what?" moments kept me flipping pages and finishing Awad's novel in 2 days. I would ❤️ for my book club to pick this one bc there's just so much to discuss, so much to digest!

If you ever wonder why some libraries are becoming stricter about their donation policies, feast your eyes on this recent donation. This was found in our drop with about 15 other books in equally bad (or worse) shape. This board book was completely soaked through with whatever that is & something green had grown on Elmo's back 😖 Unfortunately, for every 1 great book we get, we get about 10 that are simply garbage 😒 such a shame!
