So...YOUR PERFECT LIFE is out soon! (June 10th!) *squeal* And one of the things we're most excited about is hanging out with book clubs. (If you'll have us!) We've been in our own book club for two since we were 14, when we'd swap and devour Danielle Steel and Judy Blume novels like there was no tomorrow. Reading has always been one of our favorite things, as has dishing with each other--and all of you on this website-- on what we love about the books we've read.
And now, to have the opportunity to talk about our own novel with you and your book club would be humbling to say the least.
Also, we'll bring wine. Did we mention wine? Maybe we should've said that up front! Or if we aren't/one of us isn't local, we'll Skype in or do a Google Hangout and ship you a bottle-- and we can all drink virtually together. Because wine's wine, right?
We also thought it would be fun to run a CONTEST for y'all. Because you know we're contest/giveaway whores. (Contest will close June 24th at 8am PST!) Here are the deets:
If you book us to talk with your book club, we'll enter you in a contest to win TEN COPIES of one of the most fabulous, thought-provoking, you-can't-stop-turning-the-pages-and-are-so-sad-when-it's-over, novels we've read this year: AFTER I DO by Taylor Jenkins Reid.
Here's the scoop: From the author of Forever, Interrupted—hailed by Sarah Jio as “moving, gorgeous, and at times heart-wrenching”—comes a breathtaking new novel about modern marriage, the depth of family ties, and the year that one remarkable heroine spends exploring both.
When Lauren and Ryan’s marriage reaches the breaking point, they come up with an unconventional plan. They decide to take a year off in the hopes of finding a way to fall in love again. One year apart, and only one rule: they cannot contact each other. Aside from that, anything goes.
Lauren embarks on a journey of self-discovery, quickly finding that her friends and family have their own ideas about the meaning of marriage. These influences, as well as her own healing process and the challenges of living apart from Ryan, begin to change Lauren’s ideas about monogamy and marriage. She starts to question: When you can have romance without loyalty and commitment without marriage, when love and lust are no longer tied together, what do you value? What are you willing to fight for?
So what do you say? You, your club, us, wine?
