I know that many of you meet on a calendar year basis, but since our group first formed in the Fall we have just been following the school year. Over the last couple of months we have been busy finalizing our reading schedule for the next year and here is what we have come up with:
Home in Carolina by Sheryll Woods (We actually won copies of this book for our whole group from Bookmovement.com)
Things I've Been Silent About by Nazar Afisi
The Heretic's Daughter by Kathleen Kent
The Good Husband of Zebra Drive by Alexander McCall Smith
Comfort and Joy by Kristin Hannah
Prayers for Sale by Sandra Dallas
Nefertiti by Michelle Moran
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Shaffer and Annie Barrows
They Almost Always Come Home by Cynthia Ruchti
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
This schedule allows us a break in the summer to get caught up on our personal reading. We have a tradition of getting together in the summer and having a dinner and movie night. We usually have a potluck with just appetizers and in the past have watched a movie of a book we have read. This year we couldn't decide on a movie from what we read so we ended up watching My Life in Ruins, and we all loved it! So we had a great night of food, friends and fun!
When we meet in September we will be beginning our 7th year together and I'm very excited to read these books with my group. The only book on this list that I have read is Prayers for Sale and I know the ladies are going to love it! Have you read any of these yourself?
