The Book Club Slacker Fine

I have a confession: Tonight is book club and I’m not quite done the book. Because I’m a slacker that means I have to pay a ten dollar fine  That’s right, I’ll be paying my dues to the book club Night Out Fund. Even though I haven’t really been a slacker. I’ve been busy revising my second Aspen Lake story and spending time with Kate and Seth. Still, you do the crime, you pay the fine!

And this was one of those books–well it’s not fair to talk about a book you’ve yet to finish. I just say I’d rather be reading a different book. I will say this about A Light Between Oceans my ML Stedman. If you like Jodi Picoult you’ll like this author. I’m not a big Picoult fan, so that might explain things. Also, if you love lighthouses, enjoy wonderful description, post world war II stories, and tear jerking moral quandaries you should pick up this book and give it a read. If you enjoy tumblr and want to see my ode to A Light Between Oceans, pop on over here. Just because it wasn’t my favorite book doesn’t mean it won’t be yours! It really is worth checking out.

That be said I’ll be over here reading a Kristan Higgins book and giggling.

Tom is continually haunted by his traumatic experience of war. Not happy to be alive; not proud to have served his country. But then he meets Isabel, who is bold, fun and free. They get married and move to solitary Janus Rock, half a day’s journey from the mainland, where Tom takes up a job as the lighthouse keeper. Years later, after two miscarriages and one stillbirth, a boat washes up onto the island carrying a dead man and a tiny screaming baby… Continue to the (spoiler-free) review.<br />

Have a wonderful weekend! Don’t forget to share what you’ll be reading!

  1. Wow, that’s some tough book club you belong to. In the last book club I belonged to some years ago, if I didn’t read the book, either I didn’t go to the meeting, or someone would give me the Reader’s Digest version of the book. Come to think of it, maybe that’s why that book club no longer exists!

    You certainly had a good excuse. Good luck with your revisions!

    • We’ve been going strong for 13 years. We’re bonded. No one misses book club useless they’re ill or snowed in. We’ve instigated few rules. You pay ten dollars instead of feeling guilty for not having read the book. It works for us!
