Our Chick Lit Book Club Meeting Tonight


Tonight our book club met at Starbucks to discuss Watch Over Me by Christa Parrish. A great big thank you goes out to Jaclyn who gathered the questions and lead the discussion. We discussed how this book was different than some we have read in the past and that it was very complex in ways.

One thing that made this book different and interesting was how the author uses one of the main characters in the book to help us learn about post-war trauma. We discussed how difficult it must be for someone to return home after serving in battle or war (Benjamin had returned home after serving in Afganistan). I personally have never known anyone who has served our country in a war so I found it very enlightening. The author gives you a peek into Benjamin's head and what he was experiencing after coming back home and how it effects the whole family. That was just one part of the story, you'll have to read it yourself for the rest :-)

For those of you who missed our meeting, (and you know who you are!!!) we missed you! Be checking back here often to find out when our next Chick Lit Book Club meeting is as I will be posting it after I meet with our co-leader, Deborah.

ALSO I WILL BE POSTING A BOOK REVIEW AND BOOK GIVEAWAY ON WEDNESDAY. Another great book!


Until next time,

Lucie

We missed you too Kathy! I have Ruby's Slippers that you can borrow if you like. Just email me and we'll set up a time/place to get together :-)
