Paean to my book club ladies

When I'm not working, running, driving, cleaning, or taking care of the kiddos I am most likely reading. Two years ago, I joined the book club trend with three other amazing women. It is easily one of the best things I've ever participated in. Besides finding new books and having people to talk to about them, we have grown really close as we share the stories of our lives. Two weekends ago, we celebrated our two year anniversary at the beach. Given our (relatively) infamous history, book club quickly turned into what might be more appropriately called booze and hot tub club. It was, um, really, really fun. Still, all the joking aside, I have learned so much from our discussions and I am so grateful that "club" (as we like to call it) hasn't petered out after a few half hearted attempts at getting together.

Here is a list of the books we have read:

1. Twilight
2. We Were the Mulvaneys
3. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
4. The Soloist
5. White Tiger
6. Valley of the Dolls
7. Love, Loss and What We Wore
8. Love the One You're With
9. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
10. Sex and Sunsets
11. Duma Key
12. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan
13. South of Broad
14. The Unbearable Lightness of Being
15. Portnoy's Complaint
16. Such a Pretty Fat
17. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
18. Her Fearful Symmetry
19. Choke
20. The Namesake
21. Little Bee
22. Sarah's Key
23. Cutting for Stone
