THE MOTHER-DAUGHTER BOOK CLUB (About the series)

The Mother-Daughter Book Club Much Adob About Anne Dear Pen Pal Pies & Prejudice Home for the Holidays

The Mother-Daughter Book Club series is about five girls (though it starts with just four) and their mothers.  The moms start a book club so they can bond with their daughters.  In each book they read a classic (book 1-Little Women, book two-Anne of Green Gables, book 3-Daddy-Long-Legs and others by Jean Webster, book 4-Pride and Prejudice, and in book 5, they're going to read the Betsy-Tacy series).  But it's not just about the book club.  Each girl has a chapter in each season (so 16 chapters total in each book) and we get to see Emma's, Jess's, Megan's, and Cassidy's triumphs, bad days, etc.  Sometimes, the events in the books they're reading are paralleled in their own lives!  Books 1-4 have been released, and book 5 (Home for the Holidays) is due out on October 4th.  If you're between the ages of 10-15, this series could be one for you to check out.  I've adored it ever since I picked up the first two books back in 2009.  I also claim to be the series' #1 fan.  After all, does anyone else dream of being the one to write the screenplays for these books to become movies, or is anyone else writing a fanfiction about the series?  I also can remember almost every scene in the books, and I can even sometimes remember specific quotes! (Not to sound like I'm bragging. ;) I'm just proving why I have rights to the title as #1 MDBC fan, LOL.)

    Did Heather Vogel Frederick ever post the first few chapters of the fifth book like she was going to? I loved the Betsy-Tacy series when I was younger, so I am super excited!

  5. 5 times, darling? I've read the books at least ten times each. ;) And I'll quote these from my post above. "After all, does anyone else dream of being the one to write the screenplays for these books to become movies, or is anyone else writing a fanfiction [series] about the series? I also can remember almost every scene in the books, and I can even sometimes remember specific quotes!"
