I first joined the Gloss Book Club (or Girly Book Club as it was known back then) in mid-2019. I had just moved to Auckland and was looking to meet new people. When I discovered The Gloss Book Club, I thought this is a great opportunity to meet people, enjoy a glass of wine, expose myself to a wider range of books, and best of all talk about books with like-minded people. My favourite part of book club is discussing what everyone else has been reading, and then adding those books to my ‘To Be Read’ list – the list never seems to get any shorter! Historical fiction is my favourite genre, but I am also quite partial to a good mystery. When I am not reading, you will find me at the bookstore buying more books (apparently a different hobby entirely) or travelling to places such as the UK and Europe.
