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!

This weekend I finished reading

- The Devil Wears Prada

- Next Year in Havana


Re: BIC book club!

@Titian06  Have you seen the movie, the Devil Wears Prada? I had read the book during a flight almost a year before the movie came out and am slightly obsessed with the film, one of the only movie adaptations that I greatly prefer to the actual book. Also, Meryl Smiley Happy 

Re: BIC book club!

@MissPuff - No, I haven't seen the movie.  Sounds like maybe I should.  I wasn't impressed with the book at all.

Re: BIC book club!

@Titian06  Oh the movie is so much better and it's always on TNT or E or something, definitely a fun watch Smiley Happy 


I too felt that the book was kinda..meh. The writing isn't terrible but the characters were all sort of unlikable by the end and the story lines totally got away from the writer. I remember picking it up at the airport because I've always been obsessed with Vogue, then finding it not as good as I wanted it to be. Also, in the age of powerful female bosses, I found myself more annoyed with whiny Andy than with Miranda, why shouldn't female bosses be as demanding in their perfection as a male boss inevitably would be?

Re: BIC book club!

A couple of us talked during the meetup about reading “More Than Enough” by Elaine Welteroth since we had the chance to get it signed at the NYC Color Up Close event. Im going to try and start this week.

Re: BIC book club!

@unfungirl Ohhhh I’m going to try and start it this week!!! We can video you into our book club meeting. 😄

Re: BIC book club!

@lnum yes! I would love that! ❤️

Re: BIC book club!

@darkiceis had the brilliant idea to start a book club and meetup for us NYC gals. I was thinking of creating a WhatsApp group if you all use WhatsApp? 


@MlleCC @jen143xo @michelleshops @clairedabear 

Re: BIC book club!

Currently reading the final third book of the Crazy Rich Asians trilogy “Rich People Problems” and then I’m going to read Fire and Blood. 

Re: BIC book club!

@SportyGirly125 @KehDee - I thought this thread was dead, but it turned out I hadn't been receiving my subscription e-mails for over six months!  I just finished Crazy Rich Asians.  I'm on the wait list for the second book, and have the third book on my wish list.  I have another book on the wait list and three more books on the wish list.  The book I checked out is The Devil Wears Prada.

Re: BIC book club!

@Titian06 the first book took me forever to read. The 2nd and 3rd book are so much better. 

RE: Re: BIC book club!

I’ve heard those books are so good!

Re: RE: Re: BIC book club!

@KehDee several people on here have read the books and enjoyed them. I also like “To All the Boys I Loved Before” series books. 

RE: BIC book club!

My new current read. I was hoping to have it done by now but I’ve still got a lot left

RE: BIC book club!

Wait til you get to A Dance With Dragons! Talk about a long read

Re: RE: BIC book club!

@KehDee hopefully you can finish all 5 books before he releases the newest one that was suppose to come out 2 years ago but keeps getting postpone. 

RE: BIC book club!
