Ahh the ever elusive book club. It shouldn’t be, but for some reason it is. A little background. I grew up in Connecticut and had a great life, good friends, a good job but I was missing something and that was my family. My sister and my nephew had been in Maine for as long as I can remember and I had a longing to be around what was left of my family. So four years ago I packed up my books and my other less important things (furniture,clothes) and moved to Maine.
I never found a book club in Connecticut, and it had been 4 years and still no book club in Maine. I do belong to some amazing online book clubs and facebook groups that I love but I longed for an in-person book club. So I took things into my own hands, LOL!
I posted in one of the groups, and I found someone that wanted to form a book club with me and we are SO EXCITED! We did try to find others in our area, but when we couldn’t we decided that we would start with two people. One of my best friends always tells me , “You have to start somewhere” so that’s what we did. My co-founder of our book club came up with a fitting name “Maine Duo Book Club”. I felt the need to create a facebook group, though as you would guess, there are only two members.
July is our first meeting and we have decided to read “The Last Time I Lied” by Riley Sager. We both have heard so many good things about it and we are really excited!
I will post my reviews after I am done. Anyone read this? Let me know your thoughts.
Until the next chapter…
