We also have our first two books* picked for LBC Horsforth!
As with LBC White Swan, we will be meeting up via zoom, until all of our members are able to join us in person.
So, from 7.30pm on the second Wednesday of each month, we will be discussing the following:
12th January – A gentleman in Moscow – Amor Towles
On 21 June 1922, Count Alexander Rostov – recipient of the Order of Saint Andrew, member of the Jockey Club, Master of the Hunt – is escorted out of the Kremlin, across Red Square and through the elegant revolving doors of the Hotel Metropol.
Deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, the Count has been sentenced to house arrest indefinitely. But instead of his usual suite, he must now live in an attic room while Russia undergoes decades of tumultuous upheaval.
Can a life without luxury be the richest of all?Amazon
9th February – Fates and Furies – Lauren Groff
Every story has two sides.
Every relationship has two perspectives.
And sometimes, it turns out, the key to a great marriage is not its truths but its secrets.
At age twenty-two, Lotto and Mathilde are tall, glamorous, madly in love, and destined for greatness. A decade later, their marriage is still the envy of their friends, but more complicated than it seems from the outside.
As the years pass, stunning revelations threaten to destroy everything they’ve built together; but the strongest marriages are those that survive the greatest blows. Some secrets are better left in the dark. Others must be torn into the open, no matter how dangerous they are.Amazon
* If you are wondering how; it’s the same ultra complicated system as with White Sean.
I write the names of our members down and I drew out two out of the hat. Yes, I used an actual hat.
After all, these lucky book clubbers are responsible for our first two choices for the new year. No pressure!
But like, obviously there is some!
