We recently had our fourth book club meeting, with my favorite book club book so far, The Help by Kathryn Stockett.
Ashley selected the book and hosted - and we had a blast, as always :) We started with a little shopping, then drinks and apps (which were kindly paid for by the older gentleman that happened to be sitting next to us at the bar - so nice!). After that we went out for delicious wine and Italian food, where we freaked out the waiter by requesting him. The bartender at the previous restaurant told us to tell ask for his friend to be our server, but he apparently got a little nervous when he was requested by a bunch of girls he didn't know... even after we told him. Oh well!
We also had to take our book club pics for the night, since now it's tradition! We've been taking goofy pictures today since middle school, so why stop now?
We also found a few minutes to discuss the book, which I didn't think I would like that much, but I ending up loving The Help. I have no idea why I thought I wouldn't like it, because everyone was talking about how great it was, so from now on I'm going to listen to recommendations! On that note, another book I kept hearing about was the Hunger Games. Again, I avoided reading it for a while because I thought I wouldn't like it. Then, when I first started reading it I thought I really wouldn't like it. I definitely am not a "Katniss Everdeen" type girl, you can't even talk about hunting around me. But I LOVED the book! So I kinda cheated and picked that for my book club book... but only because I really want them to read it. And I'm still working on the series; I just finished Catching Fire and started Mockingjay.
