WHAT ARE THE TIRARAS READING


WHAT ARE THE TIRARAS READING



Well, the New Year is just around the corner and I have decided to add WHAT ARE THE TIARAS READING to my blog line up.  THE TIARAS is the book club that I am lucky enough to be part of.  It is a fabulous group of woman whom have gown to be my rocks.  We laugh, we eat, we drink wine and chat...but most importantly once a month we come together as woman.  We are not Moms, wives, workers ect during that few hours a month,  we are just friends hanging out and it is WONDERFUL!!!  Everybody is busy, but we make time each month to just relax and do for ourselves.   I think everyone can afford to do more for themselves.     
So, you can take the opportunity to read along with us or just see what my fellow book clubbers think about our reads.  We meet the third Wednesday of the month, so the third Friday of the month is when I will post what everyone from THE TIRARAS thought about the book.
Here are our picks for January.  We picked 2 to start the New Year right...every subsequent month will only be 1.

Book One: 
Spooky Little Girl: A Novel

Book Description

April 13, 2010
Death is what happens while you’re busy making other plans.

Coming home from a Hawaiian vacation with her best girlfriends, Lucy Fisher is stunned to find everything she owns tossed out on her front lawn, the locks changed, and her fiancé’s phone disconnected—plus she’s just lost her job. With her world spinning wildly out of her control, Lucy decides to make a new start and moves upstate to live with her sister and nephew.

But then things take an even more dramatic turn: A fatal encounter with public transportation lands Lucy not in the hereafter but in the nearly hereafter. She’s back in school, learning the parameters of spooking and how to become a successful spirit in order to complete a ghostly assignment. If Lucy succeeds, she’s guaranteed a spot in the next level of the afterlife—but until then, she’s stuck as a ghost in the last place she would ever want to be.

Trying to avoid being trapped on earth for all eternity, Lucy crosses the line between life and death and back again when she returns home. Navigating the perilous channels of the paranormal, she’s determined to find out why her life crumbled and why, despite her ghastly death, no one seems to have noticed she’s gone. But urgency on the spectral plane—in the departed person of her feisty grandmother, who is risking both their eternal lives—requires attention, and Lucy realizes that you get only one chance to be spectacular in death.

Book Two:
Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea

Book Description

December 29, 2009
When Chelsea Handler needs to get a few things off her chest, she appeals to a higher power—vodka. Seems reasonable, when considering that she discovered her boyfriend was having an affair with a Peekapoo and she had to pretend to be honeymooning with her father in order to upgrade to first class. Welcome to Chelsea’s world—a place where absurdity reigns supreme and a quick wit is the best line of defense.. In this highly entertaining, deliciously skewed collection, Chelsea mines her past for stories about her family, relationships, and career that are at once singular and ridiculous. Whether she’s convincing her third-grade class that she has been chosen to play Goldie Hawn’s daughter in the sequel to Private Benjamin, deciding to be more egalitarian by dating a redhead, or looking out for a foulmouthed, rum-swilling little person who looks just like her...only smaller, Chelsea has a knack for getting herself into the most outrageous situations.
Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea showcases the candor and irresistible turns of phrase that have made her one of the freshest voices in comedy today...


Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea is also set to be a television show on NBC...

Series Premiere Wednesday, January 11th Wednesdays 8:30/7:30c

Life, straight up or on the rocks?

Starring Laura Prepon (That '70s Show) in the title role and based on the outrageous number one best-selling book by Chelsea Handler, this is one prayer that should definitely not be taught in schools.
