We had our book club meeting tonight and discussed THE BIRTH OF VENUS. On the whole, we liked it–an average rating of 3 1/2 stars. We loved the active presentation of history and learning about art, but we felt the ending a little bumpy and the tattoo a shade too much like a gimmick. We would recommend the book to mature readers only.
Next month my book club is reading Little Beauties by Kim Addonizio. It’s contemporary and looks light, which will be a nice change from this month’s book.
