Month: DECEMBER | Date: 12/18/16 Genre: RED OR GREEN IN THE TITLE Book: RED QUEEN by VICTORIA AVEYARD
Attendance: Taja (host), Celeste, Linda, Jonetta, & Christina
Not In Attendance: Stephanie, Anna, Amanda, & two new members Amy, & Michele
Everyone agreed that this book was particularly entertaining. We all enjoyed the two faced love interest and the spin that it put on the story (even if it was somewhat unsurprising). The idea of the story was original and fun and it made the book much easier to read and enjoy. It was very hard to avoid spoilers for those who hadn’t finished it… so as hard as we tried, eventually stopped trying lol.
