book club :: the mountain between us
I want to officially invite you to my virtual book club. As you may know, I started seriously reading again in 2015. I've made a commitment to read for 15 minutes every day (on average) again this year. I used this daily tracker to track my progress in 2015 and purchased the 2016 version for this year. I've also mentioned that I have an ongoing project to read the books before I watch the movies. I've decided to pick up The Mountain Between Us, which is expected to be made into a movie in 2017 starring Kate Winslet and Idris Elba. The book is about two strangers whose plane crash requires them to depend on each other for survival. (Read the extended description on Amazon). I came across this book on this list of 12 Love Stories to Read Before They're Movies by Shannon Vestal Robson. I read great reviews of the book on Amazon, as well.
I plan to begin reading this book in April and then plan to host a discussion about it weekly (every Wednesday) in April on my blog. My friend (and sister) Jasmine and my friend Denise are already on board. I'd love to have you join this virtual book club by reading The Mountain Between Us and then joining the discussion at the end of April.
