“For me, it’s about being able to rest my mind, to curl up and just fall into a story. I love discovering new characters and learning how they resolve the conflict in the story. I especially love the feeling at the end of a good book – it’s like having just tasted a fabulous full-bodied glass of favorite Cabernet from Ironstone. It just makes you sigh with contentment,” says Rayissa.
The Etobicoke Girly Book Club allows Rayissa to combine her zest of reading with a fun girls night out. The chapter meets the last Tuesday of every month except December to read the Girly Book Club book of the month. “One of the fantastic things about this book club in particular is that same book is read by members all over the world, in every chapter, in every month. It’s a bonding experience as women. Plus we just have a darn good time at our meetings discussing the books over a great cocktail and yummy food at Eden Trattoria on the lake,” says Rayissa. And the books aren’t very serious or heavy-minded so they make a perfect escape. They are sometimes chick-lit books, sometimes historical, sometimes suspense, a bit of something for everyone.
November’s meeting is coming up the 29th and features the book, is When I’m Gone By Emily Bleeker. Can’t wait to talk about this one, it made me laugh and cry, sometimes at the same time! A great escape for anyone looking to buy a home in Toronto right now, who needs a break from a fast-paced GTA real estate market.
For Girly Book Club, we also provide book reviews. I had the chance to read and write a review of Can’t Buy Forever by Susan Laffoon. An easy read, good paced, with a beautiful love story. You can read my review posted on the Girly Book Club website.
So, if you find yourself overwhelmed by home shopping this winter market in Toronto or while preparing your home for sale in Spring 2017 in Toronto, just take a minute, pick up a book, and escape!
