A Slice of Brie Book Club: May's Pick!

Hello Book Clubbers! Your votes have been casted and while it was a close tie between When Breath Becomes Air and Remember Mia, Remember Mia won by an inch! (I actually voted for Lost & Found, but have been wanting to read all three, so the outcome didn't really matter to me).

Remember Mia is a psychological thriller, about Estelle, a young mother who wakes up in the hospital one morning with a vague recollection of recent events and any mother's worst nightmare: her daughter is missing. Estelle is unable to recall what happened leading up to her daughter's disappearance and so she sets forth on a desperate search to seek out the truth. But the lack of evidence makes Estelle the number one suspect in the eye's of the police.  Estelle will stop at nothing to find answers to her questions: Where is her baby? What has she done? What has someone else done to her?

If you're new to book club (welcome!), you can read more about it in this post, but here's the gist of it:

  • Next book club will be on May 25. My post with review and thoughts, along with some discussion questions, will go live the morning of.
  • Come visit the post, share your feelings and opinions on the book and participate in the discussion! (Of course, you're welcome to just read along and not actually participate in the discussion).
  • There will be a link up for bloggers who have written their own review post, or have reviewed the book in another post. You can use this graphic to link back, or grab the button from my side-bar. (Writing a post is totally optional and definitely not required).

  • EVERYONE is welcome - you do not have to have a blog! My blog is just the space where I host the book club, but I encourage anyone to join :)
  • On May 25, I will again include 3 books to vote on for June's book club. If you have any books you'd like to suggest for voting on, please email/text/message me!
  • Most of all, have fun! There's no pressure to "sign-up" or "RSVP". You have a month in which to read the book, so you can read it right away, or wait till closer to the date (which is what I usually do!), and if you happen to not be able to fit it in, there's always the next month! 
  • For my local peeps - it doesn't seem this book is available (as in non-existent) in the Calgary Public Library, but there are a few e-book copies at the Edmonton Public Library. You can also order the book through Chapters (<--affiliate link), Book Depository (no minimum shipping and free delivery!), or Amazon

I had so much fun discussing last month's book, and I was so pleased with the turnout. You guys are awesome, and I hope you had as much fun reading the book and discussing it with me and others as I did! Remember Mia sounds like it promises to be an on the edge of your seat type thriller and I'm really looking forward to reading it (I love psychological thrillers!). I hope you'll be joining me next month when we return to talk all about it! 

Happy reading! If you have any questions or comments, please let me know!
