NYOBG February Meeting

The meeting last night was great fun, as usual. We had a bigger turn out than normal, with some new faces, which was good to see. I like to think that people were curious to see the new Nooks that were available for us to borrow, but I might be wrong.

Everyone was very positive about Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games, while Sarah Addison Allen's The Sugar Queen was generally agreed to be very good, but not as good as her Garden Spells (reviews will follow next week). The Hunger Games really gripped everyone and I foresee a rush of requests for Catching Fire and Mockingjay, though these books are so popular that it might be a long wait for some of us. There was even talk of a trip to the cinema to see the new film when it comes out . . .

The March reads, which we chose last month, are The Woman In Black by Susan Hill and The Magicians by Lev Grossman. The April reads are Wicked Appetite by Janet Evanovich and the wonderful Soulless by Gail Carriger (review to follow next week, I hope).

My borrowed Nook is happily settled on the coffee table . . . now to write some more reviews . . .
