Book Club Reading: Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

Book Club Reading

So, either I’m too excited about reading or I’ve gone a little mental (perhaps both) but I’ve just started to run my second book club at the library.

I run a fairly successful fiction book club at my library that is mostly attended by women much older than myself. There is one exception. One woman who attends is closer to my age. She confided in me that she often is afraid to voice her opinions of certain topics in the books we read because the other women will judge her or get upset with what she says.

That made me think – I want younger voices! And I want to read YA books!

So, I have taken up the effort (along with a co-worker) and we are attempting to run a 20’s/30’s book club in our local martini bar. The first meeting’s attendance wasn’t great but I have faith for the future!

This month we read Ready Player One by Ernest Cline.

Over a Cup: Othello, The Moor of Venice by William Shakespeare

Over a cup (1)

I’ve been getting down on myself for keeping up with popular literature and not going back to some “classics.” Last night I had the overwhelming urge to read some Shakespeare. So I woke up, went to the gym, and then immediately found my copy of Shakespeare’s Complete Plays and paged to one I’d never read before.

Currently Drinking: Dunkin’ Donuts S’mores Iced Coffee (so good!)

Over a Cup: Cappuccinos, Cupcakes, and a Corpse by Harper Lin

Over a cup (1)

Okay, I admit it! I’m obsessed. Cozy mysteries have been my fall back for audio listening these days. I feel like I have been consuming books like crazy the past few weeks. Functioning without an audio – yes, even while I’m at the gm – seems crazy to me now. Cozy mysteries are the perfect download, play, go about your life audiobooks.

Currently drinking: French Vanilla Cappuccino (appropriate)

Great Graphic Novels: Princess Princess Ever After by Katie O’Neill

I don't think I tell you this enough-

Speaking of princesses…

I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it on this platform before (though maybe it becomes obvious if you’ve read my TBRs or some other posts) but I’m a huge comics nerd/fan.

It wasn’t something I loved growing up. Reading comics for grad school really inspired something in me and I fell in love with them.

I would love to occasionally talk about the ones I love a lot on this blog. Hopefully, you can indulge me and maybe even learn to love it. 🙂
