Book it: online book club

I have mentioned before that I joined a book club. It was a way to engage with other women but more importantly I have to read a book a month. When I commuted I read a book a week, it was easy with an hour each way, absorbing myself in words and worlds. Disappearing from my journey relaxing and almost missing my tube station.

I don’t have a genre that I stick too but I do love fantasy novels, stories about strong women surviving and then I also love thrillers and historical novels too. If it’s written well I will read it.

This months book club is about a women who poisons men. Triflers need not apply by Camilla Bruce. It sounds like my cup of tea so I can’t wait to get stuck in. I normally buy most of my books on my kindle but occasionally I will buy the book.

I always judged a book by its cover, or at least I am much more likely to buy a physical book if the cover is gorgeous like this one is. Isn’t everyone more attracted to certain books, covers and illustrations. It’s important, that’s why they hire illustrators after all.

I have chickened out of my online book club on zoom but if I like this book then maybe I will attend as a way of having my first drink after October. I do love a good book and with colder nights and the candles on it sounds like heaven.

I do enjoy a good book, do you have a favourite genre?

About DP

Hi, I am Dana. I am dyspraxic trying to function and get organised in my dysfunctional world. I don’t shy away from technology but I do have a preference for all things paper and analog. I am trying to organise our lives through my bullet journal, travel around the globe and save money!!! Impossible I know. I have a hard time believing that you should spend a fortune on one day. So, with my creative skills and frugality I will hopefully create my dream wedding without getting into debt. My bullet journal has been a life saver, so much that I now have 3. One for life, one for wedding planning and my last for this blog. I am lost without them. I have a wonderful partner, two fur babies ( Manhattan and Frank) a full time job that I love and my love of blogging. Please bear with me with my spelling and grammar I do proof read about 4 times but I still miss things. I won’t be offended if you correct me. So that’s me, I draw and teach art to both kids and adults and I believe anyone can create anything you just have to practice. I have had to try and try at organising, that is why I am the Dysfunctional Planner.
