Announcing: The SheKnows Book Club

I am so excited to announce that I have been asked to be one of the bloggers who contributes to the SheKnows Book Club! Here's the scoop straight from the official site!

This online book club is designed for women and book lovers who want to read compelling stories, share them with other readers, discuss hot topics, characters and key themes of books, and participate in an ongoing engaging discussion with active book club members.

I think the SheKnows Book Club is a great idea, and I just love that there selections are going to be geared especially towards women. I can hardly wait to get started!

The February-March pick is PIECES OF HAPPILY EVER AFTER by Irene Zutell.

Summary: What happensafter “happily ever after”? Alice Hirsh is about to find out…

Alice, a former New Yorker who thought she’d never feel at home in the bizarre world of the San Fernando Valley, was adapting, raising her 5-year-old daughter while trying to keep her job and make her new house a home. When her attorney husband lands a trophy client – box-office queen Rose Maris – things begin to look up. Then Alex starts working late – a lot. He crunches his paunch into a six-pack and trades his Gap ensembles for Armani everything.

Soon, Rose and Alex’s affair blazes in the tabloids and Alice is plunged into trash-gossip hell. Her life crumbles around her as she navigates her newly single self through suburban LA --a place rife with porn stars, psycho soccer moms and nutty neighbors.

Is there a chance to wrest Alex from the Sexiest Woman Alive? And if so... would Alice want him back? And what about George--her college sweatheart? Or Johnny, a walking charm-bomb paparazzo? As Alice inventories the rubble of her life, she desperately searches for her bearings and is forced to ask herself what she really wants from life, love and herself. -- St. Martin's Griffin




There will be a book club selection every two months (or six times a year) so there is plenty of time to get and read the book. If you’re interested in learning more about the book and the SheKnows book club, you can check out this announcement post. You can also sign up to win a copy of the book here.

At the end of March, there will also be a discussion about PIECES OF HAPPILY EVER AFTER which will take place on the SheKnows discussion boards. I hope you’ll check it out and join us!
