February is always the gloomiest, dreariest and coldest month, isn’t it?
We’re trying to be more optimistic and think of it as FABruary, as our friends at in a nutshell call it. We’re looking forward to a month or curling up by the fire with a great novel and a hot cup of tea. What’s not to love about that?
But boy, did we have a great January! We loved interacting with Our Daily Bread author Lauren Davis on Twitter (@LaurenBDavis) as we read it. It’s so wonderful when an author is accessible like that! You can expect Erin’s review of Our Daily Bread soon!
Last night we met, discussed January’s book, ate some delicious food, had a couple drinks and talked each other’s heads off. Nothing out of the ordinary. The only downside was that the special episode of The Bachelor was on at 9pm and not 8pm… so we didn’t get to watch it together. Oh well. One day, I swear, the book club and Bachelor worlds will collide and unite!
Recently dubbed “the most popular girl in book club”, Meghan chose our new book for February. Going for a bit of mystery with a Canadian twist, she picked The Imposter Bride by Nancy Richler, which was shortlisted for the 2012 Giller.
We are super excited to get into this one, and we’re hoping it’s a change of pace and tone from the last novel (not to knock Our Daily Bread, because we loved it, but you’ll have to wait for Erin’s review to learn more).
What are you reading in FABruary?
