I love twists!!!! That's why I love mysteries so much. I wonder what the reader was expecting from the book. The book club was started by me and a friend (who I met through another friend, ironically we are no longer friends-the one who introduced us). Stacy and I wanted to be part of a book club where you read the book and discussed it (times in the past we would read the book and barely discuss it. It would be more social than anything). We also wanted a book club that did not have a lot of rules that would take the fun out of the enjoyment of reading (e.g. no audio, penalized for not reading, etc.) We meet at a bookstore pick out books review them, add them to our master list for consideration and make a group decision. It is really laid back, but it makes it all the more enjoyable. If the book has a play or movie we go to that and discuss the similarities/differences. That's basically it. We have five members two are librarians and we celebrated our two year anniversary in September.
Let me know how you like Wicked!! I have read his other book "Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister" very interesting twist on the fairy tales. I am going to add that trilogy to the going to read list. LOL about the outfit!!! I understand my scharf is a three year project with yarn I had when I was 12. The only reason it's getting done is the people in my book club knit and crochet (lol)
I loved "Any Day Now" Lorraine Troussaint has been in "The Closer" and "Law and Order". I have not seen "Saving Grace" but it looks interesting. I enjoyed DH in the first two seasons, now it seems more slapstick humor than drama. I used to love Grey's Anatomy as well but last season was to weepy for me, so I have missed most of this season. I am getting hooked on "The Mentalist" right now. I bought a 3D puzzle but I have to find a place to put it together without my furry children running away with the pieces LOL Girl you have seen nothing until you play cutthroat Scrabble Yes I said Scrabble we used to play it like it was a spades game, we have been off of the loop for a while but will get back into it for xmas :) Just wait until I retire to the senior community it will be on and poppin LOL
Ahhhh "Saving Grace" with ( I can't remember her name but I see her face). I got into the "The Closer" by accident and have been hooked ever since. Enjoy the books ! I have yet to understand "Clue" and the people I played with were going to "teach me" as we went along luckily I didn't play for money I think I was the scapegoat of the group lol
They did "Clue" jigsaw puzzles for a while but stopped making them. I love all puzzles!
I actually have not seen "Monk" I love "The Closer" and definitely "Law and Order" Oh yes Christopher Darden from the OJ trial. He is a co-author with Dick Lochte and he has done four books so far, excellent reads (I think he has pulled them from his past cases)
Ahhh ok, I remember the series because I was trying to match it with the books I was reading. I lovvvved Nancy Drew, more than the Hardy Boys (no surprise) I have always been a mystery nut because I like solving puzzles. I am starting to actually solve some mysteries prior to the end (of course it's taken 31 years to get to this point :)) Did you ever play the game "Clue" I still don't get it, but they came out with a line of mystery jigsaw puzzles (u know I was in line then LOL).
Now does Janet have a running theme? should I go in order with her books? or it doesn't matter? LOL we are going to have to have a phone conference book club one day. I had no idea a movie was made I am out of the Nancy loop, it makes me want to get her collection again. Do they like the old Nancy? New Nancy or both?
I am going to try the series, I have been walking past Janet Evanovich wondering should I? should I not? The verdict is still out. I love Sujata Massey and Laura Joh Rowland. I have been recently getting into Barbara Hambly's Benjamin January series (It is about a freed slave solving mysteries in the pre-civil war south. Verrrrryyyy interesting.
