Code Name Verity- August book club

September 8, 2014 in recap


August book club! Let’s start with the food! Jen brought some mini tacos and chicken taquitos from the freezer section. They were pretty good and added a little variety to our dinner. I made fried chicken cutlets and a spinach blueberry salad with homemade candied walnuts and a cranberry-pear balsamic vinaigrette. For dessert, Sarah brought various colors of freezy pop and the season’s first pumpkin beer! We also drank some pinot grigio out of big goblets because I don’t own regular wine glasses. It made the dinner a little more fancy 🙂

This month’s book was a young adult novel set during WWII. It is the story of two girls who are friends and one is a pilot and the other does some intelligence/spy work. It has another book that is kind of a sequel in that some of the characters appear in the second book, but they are definitely independent of each other. That one is called Rose under Fire. We all enjoyed the book even though it was sad.
Sarah told us a funny story about how she bought a book called Code Name Verde and started reading it and wanted to kill me because it was so bad. So, be sure you’re getting the right book!

Here’s what I learned from current events: People are crazy, especially when they tell you why you’re not invited to something LIKE WE CARE, but you should tell your friends when they’re being crazy. We also learned how to be polite (ask questions instead of talking all the time) and how to enjoy life at any age. It kind of reminded me of a line from the Sex in the City movie (it’s been on TV a lot so it’s recent in my mind. It’s not like I own it or anything.) The line goes something like “Enjoy yourself, that’s what your 20s are for. Your 30s are to learn the lessons. Your 40s are to pay for the drinks.”

And, we chatted about our lives and how things were going. Sophie was determined to be pet by Sarah, even though Sarah kept politely pushing her away. I think the rest of the cats were mostly well behaved 🙂
