Book Clubs

What Came FirstWhat Came First is a great book club read, especially for a women’s group because all women have experienced some form of the pangs of motherhood discussed — infertility, desiring a baby but not having the right partner, losing a baby, adoption. You will find yourselves getting really personal over these topics which also leads to a better bonded group!” Book Club Queen

Book Rating Scale

My book club uses the following scale to evaluate our monthly selections. We each take a turn rating the book, and then we average the scores.
