Dissing the Dolls


a7677dcbf7fd0a9d9f9557ce660b38caOur quiet Sunday brunch (for a change) at Salt Creek Grille was full of tasty cocktails, “creative” beignets, and beautiful weather in the cabana. The overall response to our scandalous smut, Valley of the Dolls, was basically… where was the scandal? Maybe it was dicey in it’s day, but not to this crowd. Maybe that says more about us, but we’ll leave that open to interpretation

We are VERY excited about our next meeting, though! Hosted by the lovely Andrea at her place (Address to be emailed in reminder email blast) at 4:30 on Saturday October 24th! We’re going to celebrate an early Halloween with a little RESURRECTION! We will be picking our next book from the list of other suggested, but not chosen, titles from past club meetings. Consider it a night of the undead unread! Wear a little costume, and bring a plate of tapas and a bottle to share! Everyone’s welcome! …Yes, btw, that is a picture of my book costume 😉

But I’m getting ahead of myself… our next read, in the autobiographies and memoirs category, will be Andrea’s pick: Decoded by Jay Z. Looks like a very interesting mix of memoir, autobiography and some of his lyrics “decoded” by the writer himself! Other suggested titles at this meeting were: Wild by Cheryl Strayed & Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham.

Jay-Z-DecodedALSO… BOOK CLUB EXTRA! We need to pick a date for our movie trip to see the Martian! Please leave your availability in the comments section below. I think we’d like to go as a group and see the movie at Cinepolis in Dana Point sometime soon!
