I hit my Goodreads goal for the year! Yes!


My neighborhood book club read Jurassic Park, by Michael Crichton in October and A Christmas Memory, by Truman Capote for our holiday meeting. Both were generally liked, but they didn’t result in great discussions.

The Third Thursday Book Club read Dracula, by Bram Stoker, in October, and I finally finally read it after years of trying. I quite liked it. In November, we read Me Before You, by Jojo Moyes, which definitely lead to an interesting discussion. Then, in December, we read Throne of Glass, by Sarah J. Maas. There was strong love and strong dislike for that one. I was on the dislike side.
