The BEST 8th Episode Ever : "The Giver of Stars" by Jojo Moyes

Welcome back fellow book lovers!

This is week two of The Giver of Stars by Jojo Moyes. We thoroughly enjoyed continuing the discussion of this book and learning more about each other. Two of my favorite memories are Mandy went to a horse summer camp and learned a trick and Katie went to a wedding dress burning! We rated the book a little on the lower side but as we dove into it more we realized there was some solid content. There were topics that tend to be cliche all jumbled into one book, but if you take them piece by piece Jojo Moyes did a great job at addressing them in a triumphant way for her heroines. We'll be anxiously awaiting to hear how y'all would rate this book!

Until next time!
