Last weekend I went to my monthly book club meeting and one of the members, Jamal, surprised us with A BLIND BOOK DATE. Basically, he brought so many books for all of us but wrapped the books and just wrote a few things about the book. The real don't judge a book by its cover thing in real life. I got this huge book I'm showing off above, it's about everything paranormal/out-of-this-world.
The people in this picture are my book fam, tho a few are missing from it. But here we are, like a proper imaginary family, meets up once a month, talk bookish joke bookish, eat, laugh and go our separate ways. We're different in ages, different in tastes in books, differently in love with different fictional characters but we love books the same. I can never be more thankful to be a part of a club that embraces books and the beauty of reading. It's been only a few months since I've joined but I know it's the kind of thing I'll be taking my future kids to and asking everyone to encourage my kids to read mystery books.
This month's topic was to bring the favorite book of 2015. I brought Gone Girl obviously. A post is long due on this book because I'm totally in love with it and I can't believe I haven't blogged about it. It's the kind of book I tell all of my friends about. So if you haven't read this book already, PLS DO READ IT so that when I blog about it, we can actually talk about it and be obsessed with a few characters in it.
Also, I've made a goal of 50 books this year again. And I'm NOT failing it this time (yeah I know I failed 2015 but it's a new year
new me) And I've updated my goodreads shelves and I'm totally going to slay the book reading challenge.
Do you like reading books? Any reading goals for 2016?
