A gut-wrenching read (but in a good way.)

I just finished The Chosen One by Carol Lynch Williams

Thirteen-year-old Kyra has grown up in an isolated polygamous community without questioning her father’s three wives and her twenty brothers and sisters. Or at least without questioning them much—if you don’t count her secret visits to the Mobile Library on Wheels to read forbidden books, or her meetings with the boy she hopes to choose for herself instead of having a man chosen for her. But when the Prophet decrees that Kyra must marry her 60-year-old uncle—who already has six wives—Kyra must make a desperate choice in the face of violence and her own fears of losing her family.
This was a quick read (I read it in about 4 hours) and so well written! It was hard reading it knowing that stuff like this really happens.

December Meeting

Hey Ladies,
So fun to see you tonight. Sorry we missed you Liana, hopefully all is well with you and we will get to see you next time.
Next months book will be...

The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, by Michael Scott. It should be fairly easy to get at the library. (I just checked and they have multiple copies available now... well not now seeing as they are closed, but you could go tomorrow to some library and get the book [you get what I'm saying right?]) *AHEM* Anyway, we will be meeting on Thursday 12/9. We already know some people might not be able to make it and that sucks but December is a very busy month and it might be hard to switch it around. So let's just plan on that date at 7:30, hope to see you there.
If you have any questions please leave a comment or you can call/text me.

Book club for November

Hey all! I told Tami I would send a txt to remind everyone about book club, but just thought I would do it on here instead. (I know we are suppose to do an e-vite, but I'm lazy. You can get mad at me on Tuesday!) Anyway, reminder that Tuesday is the book club for Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. It will be held at Tami's house starting at 6:30pm. She is serving us dinner, so come hungry! She lives on my street, but I don't know her house number. Tami, could you leave a comment with the house number for everyone? If anyone is lost, they can call me. Thanks all! See you in a few!
