Silence!

I've made my decision on what my book club will read next.

Elena Ferrante. Your elegant novel set in Italy is a charmer from the very first sentence. I've already started reading you on my daily commute and even noticed fellow commuters doing the same. I can't wait to gobble you up honey.

Shantay, you stay.

Joan Collins, Emily St. John Mandel and Ottessa Moshfegh. There’s no doubt in my heart you are three fierce queens who will set book clubs around the world on fire. The stars shine brighter tonight thanks to your beautiful words.

Now sashay away.

My (composed) Saturday sorted.

Our book club will visit our flat for the first time on the 15th.

As hosts, we must reveal at the end of the evening the next read. Should I go with post-apocalyptic Station Eleven by Canadian author Emily St. John Mandel? Perhaps crime novella Eileen by newcomer Ottessa Moshfegh (who I discovered recently in the Paris Review)? Or how about Chances in honour of Jackie Collins, but also because it’s been ages since we’ve read a popular novel?

Perhaps the chosen read still has to make itself known.

I hope we’ll have enough seats, plates, booze, and finger food.
