Book Club: April

Book Club day! Last year we read Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard and last month we chose the sequel in the series Glass Sword. Not being ones to shy away from the occasional latest teen lit sensation, we were instantly hooked and couldn't wait for the follow up novel. Were you guys just as intrigued? Can't wait to hear your thoughts!


Carrie Beth's Review: 


Jen's Review: 
I remember last year instantly getting sucked into Red Queen. It reminded me a little of The Selection Series and a little bit like the Hunger Games series, but with a twist. This book took me a little longer to get into just because it was a lot more discussion about the societal influences around the characters and less about the love story, but I found myself continuing to read and finished this book in two days so obviously it sucked me in at some point. 

I was team Cal last year, and as for this year still most definitely team Cal! I can't wait to see what the next book in the series has in store for Mare and Cal, and I am hoping above all hopes she does not go to ultimately be with Maven. I also found myself cheering on what happened to the Queen. Because at the end of the day, who needs a crazy mind reading mother in law hanging over their heads? 

If you don't mind dabbling into Teen Lit occasionally and want a fast paced read, I definitely recommend reading this series!


Now to Discuss: 
Did you think that the Red Guard was being truthful with their intentions to Mare? What do you feel about Mare's relationship with Cal? With Maven? What did you think of the result of the Queen? Share your thoughts!


APRIL'S SELECTION: 
We thought we would switch this month up a bit and do a free read. This format was a hit in December and we thought it would be fun to do again. The beginning of April marks to huge events around here - Spring Break (wahoo!!) and The Master's Tournament (wahoo again!!). Long time readers will know we are huge fans of both. :)

Not being ones to shy away from theme anything, here are some of our suggestions. Can't wait to check back in next month and see what you choose!




1: Miracle at Augusta by James Patterson (note: sequel to Miracle on the 17th Green)
2: The Nest by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeny
3: The Total Package by Stephanie Evanovich
4: The Friends We Keep by Susan Mallery
5: As Close to Us as Breathing by Elizabeth Poliner
6: The Girl in the Red Coat by Kate Hamer
7: Dear Carolina by Kristy Woodson Harvey
