City of Thieves

Oops!  We forgot the book for the picture!  We read City of Thieves by David Benioff in May.
The book was pretty good... but we all agreed that we felt the author got a little off track in the middle.  Some loved the book, others thought it was good, but not great. 
We also got to celebrate a book shower for Mama to Be Amy L (she was a Mama to be at the last meeting... not anymore though!)  Her little girl Ali arrived on May 21, 2011. She is so adorable
We also got to celebrate even more babies to come this fall!  Amy R is due November 12th & Kathryn is due November 24th!  Lots of babies for LBBC!

Girl Who Fell From the Sky

In March we read The Girl Who Fell From the Sky by Heidi Durrow.  It was an interesting read that gave us quite a bit to talk about.  It had some disturbing circumstances that were hard to read I think but it was great for discussion.

Saving CeeCee Honeycutt

No picture for the Saving CeeCee Honeycutt meeting... I think I deleted it on accident!  Maybe this is a sign I should update the blog a little more often huh!?!
We read Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman.  It was a lot like The Help, which we all loved!  It was a feel good chick lit book that was a quick easy read.  Pretty good discussion for a book club as well.
This was also the meeting we got to celebrate Bre's Book Shower!  She had her little boy Tyler on March 10, 2011.  Babies, Books & Babies!!!

Mennonite in a Little Black Dress

In January we met @ Johnny Carino's to discuss Amy's pick, Mennonite in a Little Black Dress by Rhoda Janzen.  This was a pretty good chick lit read, wasn't anything we all loved but it was an easy quick read.
