Book Club: Our Next Read Is…

Book Club: Our Next Read Is…

Hello, fellow bookworms. With all of the snow over on the East Coast, I’ve gotten a lot of requests to get our next book club going. After all, curling up with a good book is a pretty good way to ride out a storm in my opinion. Never mind the fact that I’ll be reading this one poolside in our 80-degree California winter… (Try not to be too jealous, East Coasters!)

This book club is going to be extra special for one very important reason. It will be the first ever book club where the author will be participating too! I’ll be asking her a few interview questions at our first check-in, and then she’ll be joining me for our live chat at the end. Exciting stuff!

Ready to hear what book we’re reading? Drumroll, please…

Book Club: Our Next Read Is…

I cannot wait to start this book! Here’s the plot description for To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han:

What if all the crushes you ever had found out how you felt about them…all at once? Lara Jean Song keeps her love letters in a hatbox her mother gave her. They aren’t love letters that anyone else wrote for her; these are ones she’s written. One for every boy she’s ever loved—five in all. When she writes, she pours out her heart and soul and says all the things she would never say in real life, because her letters are for her eyes only. Until the day her secret letters are mailed, and suddenly, Lara Jean’s love life goes from imaginary to out of control.

Sounds like such a fun read, doesn’t it? And so perfect for Valentine’s Day.

Here’s a little bit about the author, Jenny Han, who will be chatting along with me for our final book club discussion:
