I am a member of a book club called Book Ends. We have 12 or 13 members all who live in our subdivision. I have been a member since July. I have yet to go to a meeting where every member attends as like everyone we all have busy lives and especially during the winter people want to escape the weather. In summer we also have members with cottages who also go away for the summer. Overall though we are a great mix of ladies who have something in common, we all enjoy reading books.
I am probably one of the weaker members as the majority of the books we read I would never ever have thought of picking up and reading, but this is what I love about the club it makes me read things I normally wouldn't have. I have yet to see a book that we all agreed we loved, but again that's what makes this fun.
I thought I would list what we are going to read over the next few months, so if you want to join in feel free. We meet the second Monday of every month, so if you want to post a review feel free to do it on my book review blog, where I post all my reviews. I usually read the month's book ahead of time and review it well before the meeting.
There is a link on my main page of my regular blog, or here is a link.
Just so you know if you click on the title of the book it will take you to Amazon where you can read more about the book. All members take turns choosing a book. I haven't chosen one yet, but I do have this one in mind as it sounds good for when it comes to my turn.
March: Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson - you can read my review here
April: The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd
May: Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See
June: The Rosie Project By Graeme Simsion
July: The Vagrants by Yiyun Li
I think we will choose the next few months worth of books around June.
In February 2015 the book was: Tomorrow Their Will Be Apricots by Jessica Soffer - I did not attend this meeting nor did I read the book for various reasons. It got mixed reviews by the members.
January 2015: The Cellist of Sarajevo by Steven Galloway. You can read my review here.
December 2014: Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed. You can read my review here.
November 2014: The Storied Life of A.J. Firky by Gabrielle Zevin. You can read my review here.
October 2014: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. You can read my review here.

I posted another book review yesterday here; this is for the regular books I review.
I know a lot of information to take in at once, but you know the post is here so you can come back to it again and again.
Okay when I watched this I wasn't overly happy. By the way if you live in the Great Lakes area of the States, you will be no more happier than me either!! I love an hour and a bit North, North West of Toronto.
I guess what this is telling us we need to be patient. The better weather will come it's just delayed.
