Book Club: Book of the Month #1

The guernsey literary and potato peel society

Hi everyone, this post is less beauty themed and is perhaps more of a lifestyle related post. I moved to a new area in November last year and i quickly found a favourite cafe of mine called The Bird's Nest which is in the centre of town inside the market hall in Shrewsbury. I recently heard that they have a book club which meets the first Tuesday of every month and as i am new to the area i decided to take part.

I've always been a book lover, ever since i was really young i would immerse myself in anything i could get my hands on and as a result i got a pretty vivid imagination. I once read a book by Nostradamus cover to cover and became convinced at ten years old that the world was going to end. I think i worried my parents enough to restrict me to children's books from then on!

Anyway, the book i am reading this month took my surprise as at first i was like uhhh.. i don't think this is my cup of tea, but when i got into it i was so pleasantly surprised. I'm only a couple of chapters in but i'm already laughing my head off at some bits and i am looking forward to reading the rest.

The book is called The Guernsey and Literary Potato Peel Society and is written by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. I got an iPad Mini for christmas so i picked this up using my kindle app for £4.20 off Amazon, which is really good value however my guilt about neglecting the high street bothers me. I thought it would be interesting to share the book of the month with you to see if anyone has any thoughts on the book *no spoilers please* and also incase anyone else shares an interest in reading. I'll do an update after i have finished reading it, i haven't got long until i meet the group for the first time so i'd better get cracking!

Lots of Love,
