How to host a book club

I am the proud leader of an awesome book club were we do things like read books and drink margaritas. On Friday night I hosted the "meeting" with a potluck style dinner at my house!  Our meetings have been delayed due to the busy summer months so we needed to really dish about the past months' reads which were The Hunger Games trilogy. We also dished on new home buying, Halloween parties and how the Southern Vampire series is nothing like the True Blood series (I big heart them both). So see there were TWO book related discussions going on! On to what you need for a successful book club meeting.

Food. Lots and lots of delicious food. The club has many talented domestic goddesses!

Awesome members. L to R: Lisa, Cami, ME, Heather, Rita and Dawn

Four bottles of wine and an empty stomach.

A gift for the hostess! From Dawn, she is the definition of awesome. Those flowers did hold an extra present of a spider which attacked Rita. Not really but she screamed like it did.

White dogs. No event is complete without a kiss from Pearl.

BFFs and warm clothing. Geez you would have thought it was winter on Friday night! I was hoping to have the party outside but no go.

A very fun evening with some of my favorite people. You can tell I had a good time because my eyes seemed to disappear. That's what happens when a girl is happy, make note.


  1. I love it! Book club = awesomeness. #2 pic I look like I could stomp on you all with my monsterous self!

  2. This looks so fun! I started a book club when we first moved out three years ago. Yeah.. I made an entire club and we picked a book and then I said NOPE I don't have time for this.. What a horrible host I was. I am thinking about starting one up again. Thanks for the tips!

  3. I've never joined a book club before, but it seems like fun. Especially with good friends. :)

  4. It's so fun! Kelsey you read a lot so you show start one again!
