Hope your week has started off great, and for those of you going back to school today... only 4.5 more months till summer break - WOOOOO!! Start those countdowns.
Anyway. I've got a job for you wonderful people. Below are three books - they are the ones we are considering for book club for February. If you could vote for the one you most want to read, that would be fabulous. The genre for February is romance. *all synopses and book covers are from goodreads.
Option One: Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin
tells the story of Rachel, a young attorney living and working in Manhattan. Rachel has always been the consummate good girl---until her thirtieth birthday, when her best friend, Darcy, throws her a party. That night, after too many drinks, Rachel ends up in bed with Darcy's fiancé. Although she wakes up determined to put the one-night fling behind her, Rachel is horrified to discover that she has genuine feelings for the one guy she should run from. As the September wedding date nears, Rachel knows she has to make a choice. In doing so, she discovers that the lines between right and wrong can be blurry, endings aren't always neat, and sometimes you have to risk all to win true happiness. Something Borrowed is a phenomenal debut novel that will have you laughing, crying, and calling your best friend.
Option Two: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Orphaned into the household of her Aunt Reed at Gateshead, subject to the cruel regime at Lowood charity school, Jane Eyre nonetheless emerges unbroken in spirit and integrity.
She takes up the post of governess at Thornfield, falls in love with Mr. Rochester, and discovers the impediment to their lawful marriage in a story that transcends melodrama to portray a woman's passionate search for a wider and richer life than Victorian society traditionally allowed.
With a heroine full of yearning, the dangerous secrets she encounters, and the choices she finally makes, Charlotte Bronte's innovative and enduring romantic novel continues to engage and provoke readers.
Option Three: Bookends by Jane Greene
On the heels of her national bestsellersJemima JandMr. Maybe, British
sensation Jane Green delivers a sparkling tale of old friends reunited and
old jealousies rekindled. Catherine Warner and Simon Nelson are best
friends: total opposites, always together, and both unlucky in love. Cath
is scatterbrained, messy, and–since she had her heart broken a few years
back–emotionally closed off. Si is impossibly tidy, bitchy, and desperate
for a man of his own. They live in London’s West Hampstead along with their
lifelong friends, Josh and Lucy, who are happily married with a devil-spawn
child and a terrifying Swedish nanny, Ingrid. All’s well (sort of) until
the sudden arrival of a college friend–the stunningly beautiful Portia,
who’s known for breaking hearts. Though they’ve grown up and grown apart
from Portia, the four friends welcome her back into the fold. But does
Portia have a hidden agenda or is she merely looking to reconnect with old
friends? Her reappearance soon unleashes a rollicking series of events that
tests the foursome’s friendships to the limit and leaves them wondering if
a happy ending is in store. Fortunately, Cath has plenty to take her mind
off Portia’s schemes–like her gutsy decision to leave her job in
advertising to fulfill her dream of opening a bookstore. And then there’s
James, the sexy real-estate agent who keeps dropping by even after the
bookstore deal is done. With his irresistible smile and boyish charm could
he be the one to melt Cath’s heart?
