It feels like it’s been so long since I read this book. It was one of those that grab you tightly and pull you in so that you absolutely need to know what happens. You know, the kind that you stay up way past your bedtime reading.

Needless to say, I finished this one early in the month and have actually gotten through a book and a half since then—which is major for me considering the girls are on summer vacation and I’ve felt like I’m getting nothing done lately.

The overall consensus in our virtual book club is that this is a good one. The girls who weighed in all seemed to be just as sucked into the story as I was. My biggest issue was the ending. With all of the drama and twists and turns, I expected a serious wallop at the end. But I was left feeling a little meh.

Bookworms | 8 Books I Need to Read

books I need to read

I like lists. Like, a lot. In fact, I have way too many of them.

One of my many lists is an Evernote note full of books that I really want to read. I keep it in Evernote so that I can add to it no matter where I am—whether I’m at my computer or out somewhere and using my phone, I can pull it up and add to it. It cuts down on the 47 half lists that are usually floating around my house and purse and pants pockets.

Since my list is getting long, I thought I’d share a few with you guys to see if you’ve read any of them or if you have any that I need to add.

Paperback Posse | The Vacationers Discussion Questions

The Vacationers by Emma Straub

It’s book talk time!

Personally, I think The Vacationers was the perfect way to start off the summer—it’s light and beachy, but still juicy enough to sink our teeth into a little. Like I mentioned at the beginning of the month, this book helped me get back into a reading groove last summer and I thought it would be great for anyone who had fallen off the book wagon a bit.

I can’t wait to hear what you guys thought! Let’s start with some discussion questions…

Paperback Posse | July’s Book Club Read: Luckiest Girl Alive

July's virtual book club pick: Luckiest Girl Alive

The people have spoken! And by the people, I mean our small but mighty group of book-hungry ladies. This month’s virtual book club pick is Jessica Knoll’s Luckiest Girl Alive!

In case you’re a major geek like me (and if you’re here, I’m kind of assuming you are), I decided this month to collect a bunch of info about the book and its author. It’s kind of my new favorite thing to do.

July's virtual book club pick: Luckiest Girl AliveFirst, I poke around on social media like a total creepster. Jessica Knoll (like June’s author, Emma Straub) is pretty active around those parts. You can check her out on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. I’m usually partial to Instagram because it’s a people watcher’s BFF.

Then I usually do a little Google search on both the title and the author, which is how I found out Jessica—I can call her that, right?—used to work for both Cosmo and SELF and that Reese Witherspoon is set to produce the movie adaptation (which, according to Facebook, Jessica is writing).

In case that’s not enough for you, I also found:

That should be a good start, no? If you find other fun stuff on the book or its author, feel free to drop it in the comments! And don’t forget to tag yourself reading the book on social media with our #paperbackposse hashtag.

Also, be sure to check back tomorrow for discussion questions for June’s book, The Vacationers. We’ll be talking about it over in the FB group for the rest of the week!
