Book Group: April Meeting

Book Discussed: The Solace of Leaving Early – Haven Kimmel
Wine Tasted: Riesling, Chardonnay (Yellow Tail)

The first meeting of Wine, Women and Words, was a lot of fun. Six of us met and discussed, The Solace of Leaving Early by Haven Kimmel. The discussion was good, but the book did not receive high marks from our group. We all felt that the different books and authors that are mentioned through out the book were very distracting. We didn’t like Langston as a character and Amos was boring.

The following books were suggested for us to read for future meetings:
The Wednesday Letters - Jason Wright
Magic Hour – Kristin Hannah
House Rules – Jodi Picoult
Prayers for Sale –
Book Thief – Marcus Zusak
The Help – Kathryn Stockett
The Murderer’s Daughters –

Hosting Schedule:
May –Janeen
June – Cori
July – Audrey
August – Kari
October – Michelle
November -
December - No meeting

wednesday The May meeting of Wine, Women and Words book club will be at Janeen's. We will be discussing The Wednesday Letters by Jason Wright.

Happy Reading!!
