Good news all book lovers, The Brentwood Belles WI Bookworms has relaunched! We felt the atmosphere in the pub with the distracting background music and occasional revellers , although welcoming, wasn’t really ideal for a book group. Meetings are hosted at Annette’s home in Brentwood where we can discuss books in a relaxed environment. We meet on TUESDAY evenings, roughly once a month or so. We’ll agree the next date at each meeting.
We enjoy reading a variety of material, everything from ‘chicklit’ to the classics and we suggest books on a particular theme or genre to choose from at each meeting.
We are always happy to welcome new members (Brentwood Belles members only) and have a lovely social circle just waiting for you to join! If you enjoy reading and can spare one Tuesday evening about once a month then why not come along?
The next meeting is on Tuesday 4th September 2018 at 7.45pm, at Annette’s house. We will be choosing our next book on the theme of “Chocolate!” Please email – email@example.com if you would like to join us.
Our book for August is on the theme of India: “A Girl in Traffic” by Mama Jain Valderrama.
For our “Summer” read, we chose “On Chesil Beach” by Ian McEwan, with “Black Rabbit Hall” as an optional extra.
Our May / June book was “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society” by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
We also thought another novel worth reading, if we have time, is The Child by Fiona Barton
We really enjoyed last month’s book choice,Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman and would recommend this to members.
This book is available as a kindle edition as well as paperback.
For New Members
If there are any newly joined Belles who enjoy reading we also recommended The Girl in The Red Coat by Kate Hamer, The Ice Twins by S.K.Tremayne and our all time favourite -The Light Between Oceans by M L Stedman.
