Welcome All Princesses: We had a phenomenal Evening last night as we celebrated the book, Princess of the Midnight Ball. I Had a wonderful time preparing with Briony for this Book club history event. Briony again topped all with her salty and sweet food table, which tempted and teased our senses and left us wanting more. We also crowned our own Princess of the Midnight in a special ceremony and it turned out to be our own Briony who more than deserved it. We had wonderful discussions and Author Meetings and our favorite fairytales. It was truly an enchanted evening. Thank you to all who participated and came to this wonderful event. Please leave your comments here on the blog so we can all share in the fun memories of the evening.
The we had our Literary meeting at Katrina's cute house yesterday, and boy, was it Baby central. We had Marilyn's, Libby's, Mine and surprise... Aileen brought her brand new twins. They were so adorable and cute and tiny and everything else adorable. We all loved having them.
Aside from the baby fun, we had amazing food. Briony roasted pork tenderloin and made parmesan asparagus couscous. Lydia brought homemade Jams and applesauce and Katrina made delicious chocolate chip cookies. We were eating like Kings, probably like the Guernsey literary society themselves that great day. No Germans, you can't have any.
We all thoroughly enjoyed this book. As we talked about the style of writing, our favorite characters, and of course the love plot. We overall connected very well to the small town islanders of Guernsey and felt, like Juliet, at home with them. Our hearts broke with each story from their experiences during the occupation and were sad for the loss of a main character. I believe the story was an overall heart warming success. Thank you all so much for your participation.
