5 Tips To Start a Book Club

 A story is always better if you have someone to share it with. 

This year my book club, Cover2Cover, turned 1 year old!  To celebrate, it was only right that we all wear ONESIES for our one year ;-) lol 

Our uber cute invitation lol
We had a blast! And as we continue to grow and indulge in more reads, I thought I'd share a few tips on how to start and maintain a successful book club.

Do You Lend Out Your Books?

A good friend of mine (Hi Wesley!) and I were talking recently about our love of books. He can always be found with a book, or two, under his arm and a new book recommendation on his heels. As I looked over one of his most recent objects of affection, I noticed a certain possessiveness in his eyes lol 

Dramatized version of what took place lol 
Me: What's up Wesley?

Him: Nothing. Just looking.

Me: *book in hand* This looks like a good read. 
Let me know when you're done so I can borrow it.

Him: Let you what!?!

Book Review: The Reflections of Queen Snow White

* I was sent this novel by the author for an honest review. Click cover page for summary and purchasing.*

What happens when "happily ever after" has come and gone? 

On the eve of her only daughter, Princess Raven's wedding, an aging Snow White finds it impossible to share in the joyous spirit of the occasion. The ceremony itself promises to be the most glamorous social event of the decade. Snow White’s castle has been meticulously scrubbed, polished and opulently decorated for the celebration. It is already nearly bursting with jubilant guests and merry well-wishers. Prince Edel, Raven's fiancé, is a fine man from a neighboring kingdom and Snow White's own domain is prosperous and at peace. Things could not be better, in fact, except for one thing: 

The king is dead. 

The queen has been in a moribund state of hopeless depression for over a year with no end in sight. It is only when, in a fit of bitter despair, she seeks solitude in the vastness of her own sprawling castle and climbs a long disused and forgotten tower stair that she comes face to face with herself in the very same magic mirror used by her stepmother of old. 

It promises her respite in its shimmering depths, but can Snow White trust a device that was so precious to a woman who sought to cause her such irreparable harm? Can she confront the demons of her own difficult past to discover a better future for herself and her family? And finally, can she release her soul-crushing grief and suffocating loneliness to once again discover what "happily ever after" really means? 

Only time will tell as she wrestles with her past and is forced to confront The Reflections of Queen Snow White.
