Book Club Brunch

Every Saturday book club brunch is our chance to talk about our monthly book club read, and catch up with the rest of our Imaginary Book Club!


Hello fellow book lovers, It’s still smoky over here in the Pacific Northwest! I got to attend Rose City Comic Con last weekend, which was a total blast, and my friends cosplayed as Thor, the family from Bob’s Burgers, and Howl and Sophie! So great! There are too many books in my TBR pile, and yet I have no self control when it comes to buying new books. And my poor Kindle is loaded up with cheap ebooks. How do you all...

Hello! This weekend is Rose City Comic Con! Will I see any of you there? This past week was full of packing, moving, and unpacking…and let’s just say that our boxes were about 60% books, 35% kitchen stuff, and 5% everything else. We used professional movers for the first time ever, and if you have to move a zillion books, I highly recommend letting the pros do it! Now that we’re unpacking our books, we have to decide...

Or the great smokey north, as most of British Columbia seems to be on fire, spreading smoke across the better part of BC, Washington and Oregon. Oh, did you not hear about that? Too worried that we’re going to war with North Korea? Yeah, me too. On crazy mad weeks like this one, I feel like I need the hide out of reading a great book just to keep me grounded. Fortunately,...

Hello! It’s been a crazy heat wave over here in Portland. We have a small but mighty air conditioner in our bedroom, so we can sleep, but the rest of our apartment is unbearable. I’m so sweaty and sticky, and my poor cat hates the heat too. He lays on his back with all his belly fur in the air, trying to get cool, and when the A/C is on he sits directly in front of it, with his fur blowing majestically. The heat, combined...

Hi lovelies, It’s been a hot minute since I’ve made an appearance at Book Club Brunch. After two years of managing Imaginary Book Club, I needed a solid break. I think it’s natural that occasionally the thing that you love the most becomes the most draining part of your life, and I felt like I hit a wall. Happily, I’m now on an upswing – focusing on the positive and finding myself more energized than...
