Our August book was Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and while this book is about crazy drug trips and most scandalous city in the world, we enjoyed having our discussion at a gorgeous café called Santucci’s where we all had delicious breakfasts and decided that breakfast was the best way meal to enjoy book club over!
I’ve joined something new this past month but something that has been around quite a while – the famous Book Club. Set up by my friend Laura from Uni, it gives us a place to still intellectually engage with a book but without the homework. That makes us sound very smart but we wanted an excuse to catch up, meet new people, eat tasty food and read a good book or two. Our first book was The Great Gatsby since it is on everyone’s tongue these days. I read the book back in high school but it was such a joy to read it again, and again, not have to do homework on it. I loved reading about the green lights, the oranges, the yellow cars and the puppies once more. I’d forgotten how easy a read the book was. I have yet to see the movie but I can’t wait!
