Book Review ~ Murder On The Orient Express

I thought that I would give a quick update on the Book Club. I have been a little busy lately and I have not updated our books. Well here goes!

Our November Book Selection:
Left To Tell

by Immaculee Ilibagiza

I am really looking forward to this one! It has been on my reading list for some time. It is an Autobiography of a young woman that survives the Rwandan Holocaust. If you want to join in, I will review the book the week of Thanksgiving. I would love to hear what you have to say.


Our October Book Selection:
Murder On The Orient Express
by Agatha Christie

This was a fun read for the month of Halloween. Gruesome murder, intrigue, mystery...
I enjoyed this book. It was a fast read. I am not usually one to pick a book up like this, but we do try to read things that are out of the norm. I would recommend it. Only slightly predictable. 7 out of 8 girlfriends would recommend this book.
I think I will try to rent the 1974 movie for Halloween night.



This was the book selection for September...
Sorry! Didn't like it! Wouldn't recommend it. Only one girlfriend out of 8 liked this one.

I felt that the author failed to develop the characters, story line and also made broad generalizations about groups of people.


So that brings you up to date on what the Girlfriends Book Club has been reading. As always let me know what you think. I love to hear what you have to say!

Thank you for recommending Left to Tell...I am always looking for new authors and different story lines... I will make sure I get this book and be able to join you next month!
I enjoyed most of Agatha Christie books! Especially anything with Miss Marple!!!

Can you believe I have never read an Agatha Christie book? I know I know. It's going on the bucket list.:)

"I am not usually one to pick a book up like this, but we do try to read things that are out of the norm."

The two book clubs I belong to also follow that same idea.
