Introducing: Murder & Macchiatos Book Club

I joined three book clubs. 

I was just going to join one, but turns out I'm addicted to reading. 

I talk about writing a fair amount, I talk about TV/movies a bit, but I rarely talk about reading. So, I decided to share with you fine folks a bit of what I've been reading.

If you haven't read these books yet, you've probably heard of them (all my book clubs seem to focus around popular fiction). Here's your chance to have your say - Did you read it? Wishing you'd discussed it with a group of people? I'd love to hear your thoughts.

So as not to promote spoilers, those who has read it can join a virtual book club discussion at the

I look forward to hearing from you!

The Dinner

THE DINNER by. Herman Koch

I read this book in 24 hours (sleep included), but I can't say on thing about it without the risk of ruining your reader experience. The Wall Street Journal described The Dinner as "The European Gone Girl." That's not to say, though, that this book is it's own monster. I recommend diving into this one without any floaties, but if you'd like to know a bit about the book, here's the Goodreads description.

The Night Circus
THE NIGHT CIRCUS by. Erin Morgenstern

The most fascinating thing is that this book was created during NaNoWriMo, especially since it didn't even start out being about a circus. While the resolution of this story wasn't completely satisfying for me, I enjoyed reading every word of this book. Ms. Morgenstern is adept at creating vivid imagery and weaving an elaborate plot.
