Underground Book Club reads

So, if you are reading my blog, I would skip this section unless you are an avid reader. I wanted to share or document the books that i've read in the past few years. I've been a avid reader since I was 16 years old which is about 36 years so this list is not complete. I've even added a rating (my rating scale 1-5 5 being one of the best books I've read ever).

I've belonged to a book club has been in existence since 2004. We meet once a month and the group has grown. We are called the underground book club and that is because we were originally part of a local women's club but did not want to pay the dues to continue to be in a book club so "we went underground". Below is a list of my Book club reads. We rate them as I mentioned above and we also share what "color" we saw when we were reading the books. The latter I did not share with you.
