{Book Fluffers} Mortal Instruments Edition

You may or may not be aware that I am in an EPIC book club, we are called The Book Fluffers.

I will not discuss how the name came to be, only that when you stick a bunch of 30 something moms in a room with other moms after a long week of their only interaction being with kids, funny and inappropriate things are bound to be said.

Back in February it was my turn to host, and the books were The Mortal Instruments 1-3 and Clockwork Angel. See, we're kind of the over-achievers of Book Clubs, we don't read A book, we read A series per month. On months when what we read only has 2 books in the series....we assign "extra credit books" which usually coincide with the release of a movie. Then we all go out to the movie together.

Back to the meeting: With the help of my amazing pal Jen, we made a Jeopardy board covering all 4 books. I even made what we called "Petty Paddles" so they could signal when they wanted to answer. Let me tell you it was difficult to be on the receiving end of so much visual

Here we are showing off our Petty Paddles - please never mind the 80's-ness that is my living room. We are of the collective that Alex Pettyfer is (looks -wise) our Jace. I haven't paid too much attention to his acting to know if I think he could rock the role...but damn if he's not nice to look at.

And just so there is no confusion in the future......I'm Team Jace.

So, now you have met the Fluffers - expect to see them more in the future. We have some pretty awesome meetings!!!


  1. Please tell me you live in Kansas so I can be a Book Fluffer too!!!

  2. Sorry - Minnesota! :0( We need to do via chat meetings I think LOL

  3. I am so jealous that you have a group of friends that love to read like that!!! I don't even have 1 friend that reads what I do. Well, my mom does, thank goodness! This is such a cool idea so thank you for sharing! My husband is military.... is there a military base near you I can make him move to!!!???

  4. It seems that you had lot of fun!
    Thanks for sharing.
    Btw, I love the book club name ;o)

  5. @Shannon, I don't think so. I'm literally in the city Minnapolis/St. Paul area so you could probably find out better then me :0) We would happily accept you in if you did move here!!

  6. What a fun book club! I haven't read this series, but I know it's easy to whip through books you love.
