Other Reading Notes
RomComs! I read Meant to Be by Emily Giffin, The Bodyguard by Katherine Center and Funny You Should Ask by Elissa Sussman. My favorite of this year is Funny You Should Ask (Sorry the audio cut out)
The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides - Andrea Bartz was correct, the book is better than the movie.
The Untethered Soul by Michael A. Singer - a good read for bettering oneself. It is respectful of all religions
When the Apricots Bloom by Gina Wilkinson - a great book based on a true story set in wartime. A great story about friendship
The Alice Network by Kate Quinn - I prefer The Rose Code
Survive the Night by Rilet Sager - a lot of twists
The Liar's Dictionary Eley Williams - very interesting read; not what I was expecting
Cackle by Rachel Harrison - an easy entertaining read for spooky season
The Manningtree Witches by A.K. Blakemore - great book but think Scarlet Letter in verbiage. A harder spooky season read. (Sorry the audio cut out)
Bota Box - Nighthawk Black
4 bottles of wine in one box
Stays good for one month
Cote de Provence grapes
Dry Rose - has acidity and pepperiness
And don't forget to read Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets for our October book! This is Laura's favorite, so you know she is going all out!
Bottoms Up! Stay Weird!
