Happy one year, Titles on Tap! Can you believe we’ve been meeting for a whole year? Thank you so much to everyone who’s joined us to discuss off-beat books at Napper Tandy’s – we couldn’t have a book club without you, and you’ve all made this a wonderful experience. It makes my little librarian heart go pitter-pat. 🙂
So in true “stories shaken, not stirred” fashion, we’ll be celebrating the month of Valentine’s Day with a somewhat un-Valentine’s book, “Beautiful You” by Chuck Palahniuk. You may recognize Chuck as the author of “Fight Club” (although we won’t talk about that…)
“Beautiful You” is a science fiction novel that takes a swing at the “Fifty Shades of Grey” genre. A sex toy company that tries to take over the world by controlling women – gasp! Whatever shall we do?! Heads up, this novel has a heck of a lot of satire, so take it with a grain of salt. Reviewers seem to either love or hate this book, so let’s see what we make of it! I don’t think we need to have read “Fifty Shades” in order to appreciate this book, but I may pick up a copy of “Fifty Shades” just for fun. :-p And don’t worry, “Beautiful You” is way shorter than our January title!
Pick up a copy of the book or audiobook at the Reference Desk and join us on Tuesday February 23 @ 7:30 pm in the left-hand-side bar of Napper Tandy’s. Happy Valentine’s Day!
