Not Your Mama’s Book Club

This is the landing page for all the reviews and such related to the IRL book club that I’m in, called Not Your Mama’s Book Club. I’ve been with the group since January 2018, and here’s a Thought Piece I wrote that tells a little bit more about how I got involved with the club!

Listed below are the reviews of the novels we have read for book club, as well as books that almost made the cut and I just wanted to read anyways. I’ve also included novels that the ladies have recommended that I really wanted to check out!
