"The Help"

Earlier this evening I had my book club. First of all, I just have to say much I enjoy my book club because it's a way that I can socialize with others. I started it 2 1/2 years ago and I invited gals in my ward at church (congregation) to join if they were interested. We usually have an average of 10 people come, which is the perfect number.

I've heard a lot about the book The Help, so I decided to choose it for my pick this month. It was SO good and definitely worth reading. It was a thought provoking book, and it really lent itself well for a good discussion. I highly recommend this book!

Coming up with a treat to have this month was a no-brainer… chocolate pie! (If you've read The Help, you'll understand why it was a no-brainer!)

This book is being made into a motion picture, and I can't wait for it to come out in theaters later this year!

*I usually pick the book every other month or so, so I'm always looking for suggestions for great books!

I actually got given this book for Christmas and I'm looking forward to having time to read it when my uni work settles down. If you're looking for a suggestion, I'd definitely recommend "Sister" by Rosamund Lipton, although I don't know if it's been published in the USA, as I'm from England :) xxx

"The Help" is a good book, but I didn't like the bad language:-(

I laughed out loud when I read you served chocolate pie!
