Last night was a blast with the book club ladies and we had a great time chatting and enjoying the sweet treats and hot apple cider. The pumpkin muffins and fruit salsa from the sweets menu were a huge hit but the apple pie bites were a bit hard to eat and kinda dry. The muffins will definitely be a repeat recipe in our house! Most of the ladies finished the book and we all enjoyed it. We all agreed that the type of hiking adventure described in Wild is not a challenge we would want to take on!
The next selection for our book club is The Dog Stars by Peter Heller. This book was suggested by one of my good friend's that works for our local library. Each year the library chooses a book for the county to read and this book is this year's selection. The last few years we have read the book from the library's annual selection and enjoyed the idea of reading the same book with thousands of people in our community. The author, Peter Heller, will be making a trip to our local library in a few months to host a forum and question/answer session about the book. I look forward to reading the book and possibly meeting the author. Here is a short summary about the book:
- A riveting, powerful novel about a pilot living in a world filled with loss—and what he is willing to risk to rediscover, against all odds, connection, love, and grace.
I look forward to downloading this book to my iPad in the coming weeks and reading another (hopefully) great book!
