Guess what we were doing at this time last year?
And, at that same meeting/photoshoot, Yael joined us for the first time. You might remember her amazing story from last year. I don’t think she’ll mind me saying she is still doing awesome… and loving the UBC 🙂
It was pretty fitting, then, that exactly a year later we not only had our second annual book club photoshoot, but that Yael also picked our new book.
Funny how last year, red seemed to be the “it” colour. We never coordinate our outfits, by the way – Laura just tells us to wear bright things. This year, pink/teal were definitely in!
We met at a book store for the first time too! Black Squirrel Books & Tea was kind enough to open its beautiful shop at Bank & Sunnyside to us. It was gorgeous, and they have a wonderful selection of classics and hot new reads.
We just loved last month’s pick, The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison (review coming soon). It seems we’re on a kick, because Yael picked yet another classic for August – Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar. I have a feeling it’s going to be amazing.
Have you read either novel? What did you think?
