It’s Tuesday! Time for one of our favourite memes of the week. Top Ten Tuesday was created by the lovely Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl and this week’s topic is: Things I’d Have at my Bookish Party. We decided to forgo ‘party’ for ‘small club’ (we’re introverted that way…) and list the essential items we have at our monthly book club meetings.
THE BOOKS. What’s a book club without the real reason we’re all there? Our book club subscribes to a local library that provides sets of physical books to use so we’re lucky that no one is left floundering each month to try and get their hands on the novel. This month’s book is: Where the Crawdads Sing. Here’s hoping it lives up to the hype!
Teas. We’re a bit nutty about tea at our book club and we’re lucky that the book club host is a tea-fanatic. There’s always an endless list of delightful teas to choose from! My favourite is Gorgeous Geisha by T2 Tea (green tea with strawberry).
Comfy couches. There’s nothing better than sitting back, relaxing and having a good ol’ book argument. Well, not argument but discussion. We mostly agree at book club but there have been a few notable exceptions that keep things interesting! Namely, the quality of A Dog’s Purpose. It was one book that was (almost) unanimously DNFd and disliked.
George the Cat. He’s a regular fixture at the meetings and Tequila Mockingbird Book Club (that’s us) wouldn’t be the same without its (semi-) famous honorary member! He’s a glorious feline specimen that loves demanding attention and cuddles. How could we ever say no to that???
Snacks! We’re all foodie people in the club (the ‘cool kids’ stick together) and book club wouldn’t be the same without something to nibble on while chatting. Our common faves include Tim Tams (an Aussie staple), Berries, Crackers and Cheese. We have all the essentials covered!
And that’s it! We’re a pretty average group with a pretty above-average love for books and all things bookish. What do you have at your book club meetings??
