Book Club Meetup -The Last Child

I meet with a book club in real life (several, really). August's pick was The Last Child by John Hart. I really enjoyed this book, as did the rest of the club. We usually meet at Panera, but this week we decided to mix it up and go to a local Ethiopian restaurant. The first time we went there was to discuss Cutting for Stone, a wonderful book set in Ethiopia. We loved the food so much we decided to go back.
Yebeg Alecha Wot
If you haven't had Ethiopian food, I highly recommend giving it a try! I had the Yebeg Alecha Wot, which is braised lamb. You must have the Injera (also spelled Enjera), a unique type of bread that is porous and spongy. Be sure to ask for the red pepper sauce. I'm usually not one that enjoys spicy food, but this sauce is very flavorful.

The Last Child was a great read, especially if you like mysteries. It really kept me guessing right until the very end.

Do you meet with a book club in real life? Where do you guys usually meet and what is the format?

Love and (a book) light,



  1. I read The Last Child back in January. It was the first book I posted a review of on my blog. I loved that book. I just picked it up from the library one day on a whim and just couldn't put it down once I started. It was excellent. A real suspenseful story that was excellently written.

    The food looks good! I'm not part of any book clubs, but that's okay. I enjoy discussing books via blogland. :)


  2. I just joined a book club! We usually meet up at each other's homes and bring a dish, but meeting up at a restaurant would be so much fun! That food looks delicious.



  3. adding that book to my list and ummm....that food...well, i'm getting really hungry.


Your comments always make me smile. <3
