The Help which is based on the book The Help by Kathryn Stockett, which was our favorite book club book so far. (If you haven't read it yet - go do it. Amazing.) And I think we all really enjoyed the movie too. I know I loved it. Things were changed, of course, but the core of the story was there and done well. And the actors were perfect! (The only one that took me a while to get used to was Constantine. That was not the Constantine from my mind.) But when you go, be prepared - bring tissues.
Since we went to the movie Catherine decided to choose more of a 'fluff' read to discuss over food after, so we read Gunn's Golden Rules: Life's Little Lessons for Making it Work by Tim Gunn. And I have to say that I am super glad Catherine chose it. Because having never watched Project Runway (I know! I have added it to my queue on Hulu and am going to catch up) I didn't really know anything about Tim Gunn and therefore would never have read this book on my own. And I really enjoyed it. (That's the point of book club after all, isn't it?) The title pretty much sums it up - Gunn offers rules for life, and through the rules he peppers us with anecdotes, gossip and personal stories. What's not to like?
