babbling book club celebrates christmas

i LOVE to read, but i rarely make the time for it unless i am on vacation. some of the members of book club are very dedicated readers, and some of us have good intentions. we even joked we should just call it club instead of book club.

a few years ago we started the tradition of having our december book club be more of a christmas party hosted by courtney. her home is beautiful and always filled with christmas. 
aly (and baby mckay), me, kelli, kathleen, mauri, courtney, clarisa
we exchange gifts (often books). this year we did a favorite things exchange. everyone brought such fun things. aly had to leave early so she showed us her gift before she left.
when we started book club, most everyone was single and the marrieds only had 1 kid. we have really grown a lot over the past several years. we may not always talk about the book, but we always have a great time talking. i love these girls and our time spent together each month.

we also picked some of our books for the year so here's the list if you're interested.
january-skip (several girls with new babies)
february-let it go by chris williams
march-undecided
april-cinder by marissa meyer
may-the life changing magic of tidying up by marie kondo
june-tiger's curse by colleen houck
july/august-summer break
september-undecided
october-boys in the boat
november/december-all the light we cannnot see by anthony doerr

  1. Oh how fun!!! I always thought it would be fun to be a part of a book club but I seriously never have time to read. My preferred reading is blog reading :) but the getting together with friends and having snacks and wine sounds so appealing!
