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!

@Titian06-  I'm #23! If it's alright with everyone, lets skip ahead to the next book Never Let Me Go. That way we can kinda kick the can down the road and hopefully by the time we're finished with that one, we can do The Hate U Give.

Re: BIC book club!

I've been MIA on the BIC for a while, but will get back in the game for Never Let Me Go

Look forward to discussing soon @prettyinpa!

Re: BIC book club!

@prettyinpa - This sounds like a good idea.  For Never Let Me Go, I'm No. 1 on the wait list for three copies.  A book can be checked out for 21 days, so I should have this book in a couple of weeks.

Re: BIC book club!

@Titian06-  My copy should be available Saturday, so at least this time I won't be held up by the library, lol.

Re: BIC book club!

@prettyinpa - I got my e-copy of Never Let Me Go this evening.

 

I also checked The Hate You Give; I've moved from 61 to 50 on the wait list.

Re: BIC book club!

I'm finally done The Fault in Our Stars, what a moving book!

Re: BIC book club!

@prettyinpa I'm reading "To All the Boys I Loved Before" trilogy.  I might do Crazy Rich Asians Trilogy next. 

Re: BIC book club!

@prettyinpa @Titian06 and everyone else - I am so happy to see the BIC Book Club is still alive and well!  

 

I have been super behind, but I've actually bought several books on the list and recently finished To Kill a Mockingbird (I loved re-reading this - it's been a long time since I read it and I think I got more out of it this time around) and started The Book Thief (Wow! Let me just say Markus Zusak has a gift for writing - I love this book so far)!

 

I'm not planning to read ahead in this thread so that I can avoid spoilers, but here are the pics I snapped when I started the books (feeling nostalgic for sunny days by the pool already ....and please pardon the bright yellow toenail polish - it didn't translate well in the pic - lol!):

Re: BIC book club!

@Tamara76- Love your pictures!  We're discussing the books under separate threads.  I'd paste the links here, but my tablet isn't very cooperative about that. 

 

Re: BIC book club!

@Titian06 Ohhhhh - Great idea - No spoilers! <3  Thanks!

Re: BIC book club!

Yay @Tamara76- you look so comfy in your pool chair with your book. I read that one in the car traveling to a work venue. Boring trip but fabulous book.

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

 @Titian06  @IndyQT317  @snoflakefaerie  @greeneyedgirl107  @fatimamummy

 

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.
