Reading Between the Wines

For as much as I love to read, I never in my life thought I would be involved in a book club. I love the freedom that comes with reading and I didn’t know if I would blend well with a group of individuals creating guidelines for me to follow and telling me what books I can and can’t read.

I just joined a book club and fortunately for me, I can tell this isn’t going to be a bad experience. So far, everyone has been really cooperative and I think the biggest dilemma we have faced so far is trying to decide what our book club should be called. Everyone involved in the club is really on top of the work that needs to be done and very active when it comes to participation and communication. We mostly rely on social media to stay involved and we have had one in person meeting. In that meeting everyone was able to agree on what books we should be readings throughout the semester.

We have decided on three books so far. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds, and The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. I think I’m most excited about the Graveyard Book, it is a graphic novel and from what I have read so far, it’s pretty cool!

Overall, I think everything is going well and I only see this experience getting brighter from here.

  1. Haha I have never thought of being a book club either until this class, but I have to say I am pretty excited to see what happens, and where it can take me as a reader. What I love about our club is that we all seem to get along, and we all seem to enjoy the same types of reading. And even if we aren’t interested in a certain book, we look forward with optimism to try new things.
