In February I joined a book club in hopes of increasing my reading as well as enjoy the company of friends without the distraction of kids. We just finished and discussed Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers last Saturday and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The ladies all had great points to discuss and brought their own questions, comments, and personal stories to share. The next few books on the list are Memoirs of a Geisha
by Arthur Golden and The Zookeeper’s Wife by Diane Ackerman. Even though we won’t be discussing Memoirs of a Geisha till next month, I finished it a couple weeks ago. Having a deadline has really motivated me to read. Yea! I even read Bridget Jone’s Diary before starting the next book on my list just to lighten the mood. The first two books are about prostitution and I needed something a little more lighthearted. Today I picked up a copy of The Zookeeper’s Wife at my local library. I can’t wait to get started.
