I’m a huge book lover. Like HUGE. But I am one of those people that wants to share and talk about the book after I read it. I usually bug my friends about all the interesting things I’m reading...and they can only take so much.
So I was talking with my Vingle book lover friends and we decide to start our own Vingle Book club!
The plan is to pick a book and discuss the book! We can break the book up into chapters and discuss it throughout the month!
A Little Life
We picked the book A Little Life to start out with.
"When four classmates from a small Massachusetts college move to New York to make their way, they're broke, adrift, and buoyed only by their friendship and ambition. There is kind, handsome Willem, an aspiring actor; JB, a quick-witted, sometimes cruel Brooklyn-born painter seeking entry to the art world; Malcolm, a frustrated architect at a prominent firm; and withdrawn, brilliant, enigmatic Jude, who serves as their center of gravity. Over the decades, their relationships deepen and darken, tinged by addiction, success, and pride.
Brace yourself for the most astonishing, challenging, upsetting, and profoundly moving book in many a season. An epic about love and friendship in the twenty-first century that goes into some of the darkest places fiction has ever traveled and yet somehow improbably breaks through into the light.”
Doesn’t it sound AWESOME?
A couple guidelines!
1. Only join if you are willing to commit to reading this book!
2. Have a passion and a love of reading and talking.
3. Be open to making some new friends and having an thoughtful discussion.
