I am pleased to share that my LaurenConrad.com Book Club is starting back up again and today I will be announcing our next book! I know you have all been requesting so many great reads, and I have taken note of all of your recommendations. So, without further ado, our next book club book is…Where’d You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple.
I am so excited to start this book, so I decided to do a little research before getting started. Here’s the story description I pulled from the Amazon listing for Where’d You Go Bernadette.
Bernadette Fox is notorious. To her Microsoft-guru husband, she’s a fearlessly opinionated partner; to fellow private-school mothers in Seattle, she’s a disgrace; to design mavens, she’s a revolutionary architect, and to 15-year-old Bee, she is a best friend and, simply, Mom.
Then Bernadette disappears…
To find her mother, Bee compiles email messages, official documents, secret correspondence–creating a compulsively readable and touching novel about misplaced genius and a mother and daughter’s role in an absurd world.
Are you going to join me in reading our new book?
If you are going to participate by reading Where’d You Go Bernadette, read to the end of part one called “Mom Versus the Gnats” by March 6th.
On March 6th I will post a few reading questions for you to answer and announce the date of the book chat too.
