I am hosting book club for the month of January... and I think I am crazy... here read the email I sent out to the fabulous group of ladies!
Hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and a great New Years!!!
I've been thinking about books and so... I think I've picked one for book club. I am pretty excited to be hosting. For dates I am thinking the 20th or 27th at like 7. Thoughts?? I work Tuesdays and Thursdays nights and run Monday's and Wednesday... so if a Friday doesn't work would a Saturday? Or late Monday???
For the book I had major trouble picking!! Remember Whither??? Well, the next book Fever doesn't come out until February so I couldn't pick that... and then I was thinking Amanda Hockings Trylle Trilogy book one Switched but it's not release in Canada yet! (Amanda's Hollowland is a good book BTW, even if it is about Zombies)
so... instead I have picked Maryrose Wood book called the Poison Diaries! You can read the first 60 pages or so here, and that should be enough to suck you in! And then if you have a kindle, nook, kodo, or whatever you can buy it from whatever your favorite website is through Epic Reads on FB for 99CENTS!!! (Chapters has it too!)
In the right dose, everything is a poison. Even love . . .
Jessamine Luxton has lived all her sixteen years in an isolated cottage near Alnwick Castle, with little company apart from the plants in her garden. Her father, Thomas, a feared and respected apothecary, has taught her much about the incredible powers of plants: that even the most innocent-looking weed can cure -- or kill.
When Jessamine begins to fall in love with a mysterious boy who claims to communicate with plants, she is drawn into the dangerous world of the poison garden in a way she never could have imagined . . .
Now the Poison Diaries is a very small book... so if you want we could read Entwined by Heather Dixon instead, which is also on Epic Reads for 99CENTS!
Azalea is trapped. Just when she should feel that everything is before her . . . beautiful gowns, dashing suitors, balls filled with dancing . . . it's taken away. All of it.
The Keeper understands. He's trapped, too, held for centuries within the walls of the palace. And so he extends an invitation.
Every night, Azalea and her eleven sisters may step through the enchanted passage in their room to dance in his silver forest.
But there is a cost.
The Keeper likes to keep things.
Azalea may not realize how tangled she is in his web until it is too late.
IT IS UP TO YOU!!! I am all about savings $$$ on books this year because Mr. put me on a budget and I can only buy 12 books in 2012!! Which is a challenge I have gladly accepted because he doesn't count 99CENT books (the silly guy...)!
Yup pretty sure I am crazy ;)
P.S. the vote decided to read Poison Diaries see my review here! Book club date is set for the 20th!!
