Our next book club meeting is in less than a week (for those who’ve missed the earlier announcements, it’s Frankenstein on Tuesday the 19th of November at Cafe Creme – more info here). I thought a few people might we wondering what goes on at the book club meetings, so I asked our committee member Kate to give us a round up of last month’s meeting (they read Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier).
Book Club – What to expect and a little about last month’s book: Rebecca
Our first ever book, Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier, got the book club off to a fantastic start! We had some brilliant discussions and debates, along with lots of giggles!
The format is relaxed and informal; we all gather round some tables pulled together and throw our ideas into the mix. Held at the fabulous Cafe Creme, hot chocolate and wedges of cake are the perfect accompaniment!
Our book for this month is Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. We will be returning to Cafe Creme on the November 19th at 19:30. At this meeting we plan on choosing our next 2 books, so please come along with your ideas.
Suggestions (so far!):
The Handmaidens Tale; The Awakening – Kate Chopin; Captain Corelli’s Mandolin; I Capture the Castle – Dodie Smith; A town like Alice; I’ve got your number – Sophie Kinsella; Agatha Christie; Virginia Wolf; One Day – David Nicholls; Margarett Atwood; Sons and Lovers – D.H Lawrence; Gone Girl – Gillian Flynn; A Thousand Splendid Suns – Khaled Hosseini; The Help – Kathryn Stockett; The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo – Stieg Larsson; The Cousins War series – Philippa Gregory; Kate Mosse; Almost English – Charlotte Medelson; the new J.K Rowling book; Game of Thrones series; The Age of Innocence – Edith Wharton; On the Road – Jack Kerouac; The Night Circus – Erin Morgenstern; Jane Eyre – Charlotte Bronte; The Last Kings of Sark – Rosa Rankin-Gee; Little Women – Louisa May Alcott; Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail – Cheryl Strayed…
