Yesterday, my book club, “The Bookies” had our monthly book club meeting. The book chosen by October’s host Regina was “The Witch’s Daughter” by Paula Brackston. I gave the book three stars for being an okay book. The book goes back and forth from present time to the past as Elizabeth, a 384 year-old witch, tells a neighborhood girl, Tegan, who she befriends about a evil sorcerer she keeps hiding from throughout her life. I enjoyed reading the stories of Elizabeth’s past than her present life, especially when the author places Elizabeth during the time of Jack the Ripper. The other book club members weren’t very fond of the book either.
Regina, the hostess, wanted us to dress up as our favorite witch at the meeting since we were reading a book on witches and she also gave us a wooden witch mask to paint. I didn’t get a chance to paint my witch mask but I did dress up as a witch. By default I won the best witch costume because I was the only one who dressed up except for Regina. Can you guess whom I dress up as? The green face and the monkey should be an easy give away.
Like always, the food was delicious and above are the fun and tasty desserts we had.
Remember to brush your teeth and have a safe and happy Halloween!
