October Book Club
Hello again! Welcome back to book club. I hope that you all enjoyed the last two books. This month is going to be good as well. I have been looking forward to reading them both for some time. I have just been waiting for the right time to start reading! Check them out…
BOOK CLUB SELECTIONS
The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley: A Novel // “Samuel Hawley isn’t like the other fathers in Olympus, Massachusetts. A loner who spent years living on the run, he raised his beloved daughter, Loo, on the road, moving from motel to motel, always watching his back. Now that Loo’s a teenager, Hawley wants only to give her a normal life. In his late wife’s hometown, he finds work as a fisherman, while Loo struggles to fit in at the local high school. Growing more and more curious about the mother she never knew, Loo begins to investigate. Soon, everywhere she turns, she encounters the mysteries of her parents’ lives before she was born. This hidden past is made all the more real by the twelve scars her father carries on his body. Each scar is from a bullet Hawley took over the course of his criminal career.” – Amazon
I am so excited to dive into this adventurous suspense novel. I can’t wait to see the story unfold.
Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us // “Most people believe that the best way to motivate is with rewards like money—the carrot-and-stick approach. That’s a mistake, says Daniel H. Pink (author of To Sell Is Human: The Surprising Truth About Motivating Others). In this provocative and persuasive new book, he asserts that the secret to high performance and satisfaction-at work, at school, and at home—is the deeply human need to direct our own lives, to learn and create new things, and to do better by ourselves and our world.” – Amazon
I always like to read one “fun” book & one “educational” book a month. This kind of evens out the reading for me. I came across this book when I was reading an article on self motivating and this book seemed perfect. I can’t wait to read all about it.
Thanks again for reading with me every month! I hope you enjoy all of these selections just like I do. I have heard so many great things about these books so I hope that they are as good as the reviews.
