Setting up this thread for our Summer 2018 read of Surprise Me. DIscussion leader will be Renee, who will be posting a reading/discussion schedule for us.

Who will be joining us for this read?

Renee (elenarenee) | 275 comments Well Obviously I will. I hope to see others. The book is funny and yet their is a lo to discuss. Imagine you suddenly realize that marriage means you will be with the same person forever. Will it become dull? Should you do something to keep the excitement in the relationship. Surprise me addresses just that.

I have house guests but I will be setting the read dates in the next couple days.

Sounds good, Renee. I have ordered my copy and look forward to reading and discussing!

Petra I'm in. I should be getting a copy from the library next week.

I'm a bit leery, I admit, but it sounds as if there will be issues here that will make for a good discussion.

Note: my leeriness is because of the "chick lit" label the book has gotten. Those don't always work well for me (although some do).

Renee (elenarenee) | 275 comments I think you will be surprised. The book is chick lit but it uses humor to explore relationships.

Petra Thanks, Renee. That's what I'm hoping for. I have hopes as I've enjoyed many books labelled as such. It's an odd genre for me but I try not to discount a book because of that label.

I picked the audio book up yesterday and can start soon.
