Recap & Reminders

So we’ve had our first meeting and now we’re totes legit! Woohoo!

Our first book club meeting included Katie, Alicia, Jo, and me (plus a special guest appearance by Kate, who stood in for Katie whenever needed). Aside from planning my Super Sweet Sixteen party, complete with a Ke$ha cat-fight, BCBG dress with removable skirt, and an Acura cake, we also talked about the book and drank some wine.

Unfortunately, the 50% of our attendants who *finished* the book didn’t care for it much. There’s a dragon and man-eating bats… which is where we apparently draw the line. Good to know.  So, sorry about my epic fail for a first book, but it did provide for many hillarious comments throughout the night.

On the menu were strawberries with a side of strawberries, watermelon, Shirley Temples, and pink fizzy alcoholic beverages (which we deemed a MUST for future meetings.) Then I made ravioli for dinner and we counted the sauce as an additional RED food. So there.

Much fun was had by all, just not during the actual reading of the book. We hope Ashley picked a book that’s less shitty đŸ™‚

Moving on…

Here’s your reminder that our NEXT meeting is September 9 at Ashley’s place. We’re reading “It’s My Wedding Too” and having a bachelorette party theme.  I call dibs on Penis Pasta Salad. If you can, post what you intend to bring so we can have a more complete meal/snack array at this next book club.

With a little practice, I’m sure we’ll get the hang of this eventually…

 

Later, bitches đŸ˜‰

September @ Ashley’s: It’s My Wedding Too

Our second meeting will be held at Ashley’s house on September 9, 2011 at 7 pm.

BOOK: It’s My Wedding Too by Sharon Naylor
THEME: Bachelorette party (get as phallic as you want!)

About the Book:

“Bestselling romance novelist, lady-who-lunches, Hollywood insider. She of the botoxed forehead, MAC-painted lips, and direct line to Oprah. My mother. There was a time when the pedigrees of neither my fiance nor my engagement ring would have mattered to her, as long as I was happy. That was then. Now she’s a celebrity, and my wedding is the ultimate publicity stunt. She’s got it all mapped out, from soup to nuts. Oh, and speaking of nuts…The Queen of Queens. She cooks; she cleans; she dotes on Anthony, the world’s most wonderful son. My future mother-in-law has her own ideas about the proper matrimonial send off for her precious baby boy: There will be church, cannoli, and Cousin Jimmy V. singing “Fly Me to the Moon.” What there won’t be is Delilah’s vision of WASPy nuptial perfection…Emilie, hapless bride-to-be is caught between Nomzillas with opposing views and sharpened claws. On one side: Carmela, guilt, and tradition; on the other, Delilah and the three Ws (Wang, Weitzman and Weinstock). When, exactly, did my big day become theirs, and how do I get it back? Damned if I know. But something’s gotta give – and soon – or the wedding of the year will be short one bride…”

Now available in paperback and ebook formats on Amazon.

August @ Stephanie’s: Insatiable

Our FIRST official meeting of our brand NEW book club will be held this Friday night at 7 pm.

BOOK: Insatiable by Meg Cabot
THEME: Red

About the book:

“Cabot (Princess Diaries) winningly applies her trademark likably fallible protagonists and breezy storytelling to a vampire war in New York City. TV writer Meena Harper creates fabulous plots for Insatiable, the second-highest–rated soap opera, thanks to her burdensome if lucrative psychic ability to see into the future and determine how people are going to die. And just as Insatiable is switching to a vampire theme to attract a younger demographic, a spate of chilling murders-by-exsanguination grips New York City. Enter Lucien Antonescu, a sexy, melancholic Romanian history professor/vampire who recognizes that the murders are the work of rogue vampires who have broken away from his order. (Lucien happens to be the son of Vlad the Impaler, whom Bram Stoker gave such a bad rep.) Lucien’s opposition: Alaric Wulf, a sympathetic detective from the Palatine Guard, who hopes to use Meena and her prophetic gift to stop the murders and track down Lucien. Unfortunately for Alaric, Meena is a little in love with Lucien. Cabot is less concerned with creating a convincing family tree for Lucien than with creating sparks between her characters, who feel pleasantly natural even as they live alongside the vampires next door.” (from Publishers Weekly, via Amazon)

Now available in paperback, hardcover, and ebook formats. Get it on Amazon here.
