I started a book club!
My mother and aunt are the only members. I am 95 years old and these are the types of things I find fun.
They kicked off the club with stellar picks. Like, we were all gushing over the first two books.
Then it’s Rachel’s turn to pick. Haven’t we all learned by now not to put me in charge of anything? I have like 12 books in my bedside table waiting to be devoured. So I, of course, want to choose one I already have vs. buying something new. I share a couple of options with them. Apparently Les Mis and Pride and Prejudice were not super attractive reads to them???? Idk. I didn’t want to go with something too dark and serious or anything set in freaky dystopian society because we were on kind of a light train. I was reading my audience! So I chose one by the same author we had just finished reading, thinking well we loved the first one, this will be a safe, crowd pleasing choice. Wrong-o. This sis must have taken some writing courses in between this book and the one we just read or something because this book is just not good. I was trying to convince myself and my fam otherwise with positive thoughts like, “Oh, it got so much better when I got to this part!” I get a text from my mom last night that reads, “I’m struggling with this and can’t wait until I finish it.”
Fine, you people are getting Tolstoy next!

Recipe looks delicious. Better luck next time with the book pick. I’m reading it as fast as I can so I don’t have to look at it anymore.
Great quesadilla- horrible book choice. I can’t read it fast enough just to end the misery. Good thing you cook better than you choose books 😲
Great intro with the book club.
Great post 🙂
