This is Where I Leave You Book Club

I am an avid reader. Seriously. When we go on vacation, I usually read a book a day. For me, reading is such a great escape which is only second to seeing a good movie. I am especially fond of reading books right before the movies come out so I can see the movie and then compare.

It’s always fun to read the book before the movie, right? This September, Jonathan Tropper’s novel This Is Where I Leave You is coming to theaters with this incredibly relatable drama/comedy and I just started the book a few days ago. I am loving it so far and getting ready to share it with a few local friends (more below).

This Is Where I Leave You the movie

The dramatic comedy “This is Where I Leave You” is directed by Shawn Levy, and based on the hilarious and poignant best-selling novel by Jonathan Tropper. It features a starring ensemble cast including Golden Globe winner Jason Bateman (“Arrested Development”); Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Tina Fey (“30 Rock”); and two-time Oscar® winner, multiple Golden Globe honoree and 2013 Emmy Award nominee Jane Fonda (“Klute,” “Coming Home,” HBO’s “The Newsroom”).

When their father passes away, four grown siblings, bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens. Confronting their history and the frayed states of their relationships among the people who know and love them best, they ultimately reconnect in hysterical and emotionally affecting ways amid the chaos, humor, heartache and redemption that only families can provide—driving us insane even as they remind us of our truest, and often best, selves.

These are two of my favorite comedic actors and I especially love them when they play serious roles. These two are perfect together plus they seem to mesh well with the rest of the cast. This is definitely a “must see” movie for me.

Local book club

I will be hosting a This Is Where I Leave You book club discussion in early September. I cannot wait to share the book with my friends! The combination of family, sibling rivalry and more all under the same roof for a week is simply irresistible to me! Since I love reading so much, I am excited to share this book with friends and then meet to discuss it.

There will be a little fun, a little wine and definitely some good times at our book club. I can't wait to share more with you!
