BIC book club!

Some of us here have expressed an interest in a book club, myself, @mermadelove, @LCResz, @ZombieMetroAnt, @Mcakes. If you'd be interested in joining, reply below. My initial thought was to mail the books around but if it means that some people can't participate, then I'm all for dropping that requirement. I'd love this to be a place where we nominate our favorite book and others can read it and comment. Something fun for the new year!  ETA: the booklist:

Re: BIC book club!

Thanks, @prettyinpa!!!   I need to find more time to finish The Book Thief because I am seriously loving his story telling and I love the narration device he uses.

 

I haven't posted any discussion on To Kill a Mockingbird and I'm not sure if y'all discussed it, but it is a classic for sure and I was glad to read it again. 

 

I think the last discussion I posted was The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Smiley Happy

Re: BIC book club!

@prettyinpa- I finished reading The Fault in Our Stars.  Ready to discuss when someone else is.

 

Re: BIC book club!

@Titian06-  I've got to get going on The Fault in Our Stars. Been busy with work and too tired to read at nite, I fall asleep even if the book is a good one.

Re: BIC book club!

No problem, @prettyinpa!  That's been my life the past few weeks.

BIC book club!

Hey Book Loves! I just saw on TV the movie trailer to the book "The Hate U Give." I LOVED this book when it debuted. I hope the movie stays true to the book.

Re: BIC book club!

@RachFace2921Here's the link for the Book Thief Discussion. We'll see if this helps everyone keep up with what's going on. https://community.sephora.com/t5/Besides-Beauty/bd-p/besides-beauty

Re: BIC book club!

The Book Thief is one of my favorites ❤️ Hope it was well received! And for the record…book > movie ! @prettyinpa

Re: BIC book club!

I'm glad you liked The Book Thief, @scarletb. It really was so well written and the ending was just so unexpected, but in a good way, not like everyone was dead and that's that.

Re: BIC book club!

Tag me when you're ready to start The Wedding Dress thread @prettyinpa

Re: BIC book club!

@RachFace2921-  We might as well start it, I don't think I'm ever going to finish it, it's not capturing my interest like some of the other books. I'll start it's own thread.

Re: BIC book club!

Awesome, thank you!  I skipped The Book Thief, but am ready for The Wedding Dress when the group is.  I'll be stalking the thread in the meantime @prettyinpa@, LOL

Re: BIC book club!

Great idea with the link and thread per book.  I'll meet you and the others soon for The Wedding Dress @prettyinpa

BIC book club!

Hello Ladies! So yesterday was National Book Reading Day and I finally got this book I had on hold at the library. I thought it was fitting to share. I'm excited to read this

Re: BIC book club!

Hi, @IndyQT317 !  I didn't know about National Book Reading Day!  Smiley Sad

 

I haven't heard of that book.  I'd love to hear your thoughts when you're done!  Enjoy!

Re: BIC book club!

So would Friday work for starting the discussion of The Book Thief?

Re: BIC book club!

Ooh, I have the Book Theif (and the Wedding Dress). I will maybe pause the book I’m reading now to see if I can read the Boof Theif in enough time. And if not, I’ll start on the next book.

 

@prettyinpa Do you mind/want to try starting a new thread for the next discussion? I think also maybe bolding the title you’re currently on or the next one up with a date of discussion next to it, might be helpful so it’s more clear from the main thread what people are focusing on? Idk, it might be helpful, or it might just be more of the same. Feel free to ignore me......

Re: BIC book club!

@snoflakefaerie- That's a good idea about starting a new thread for each book discussion. I don't think we could be accused of spamming the boards, lol. I also edited the main list per your idea, thanks!

Hey book loves! I wasn't sure when to start the next book...

Hey book loves! I wasn't sure when to start the next book. I kept circling back to the thread for an update. Lol. I will catch the next book to keep up😉

Re: Hey book loves! I wasn't sure when to start the next book...

For what it's worth @IndyQT317 , I start the next book within a few days after I post my comment(s) about the current book.  I never know how long it will take me to read a given book, so I start as soon as I can.

Re: Hey book loves! I wasn't sure when to start the next book...

Thanks @Titian06 that does help. I will do that going forward. Also ladies I won't read The Wedding Dress after all. I will jump back in on The Fault in our Stars. I have read it prior, but will reread it to jog my memory.  

Re: BIC book club!

@prettyinpa I’m halfway through The Book Thief and I find it a very easy read. I think I’ll be done by Friday.
