If you love Meryl Streep movies and books about women’s friendships, you will love The Meryl Streep Movie Club by Mia March.
From the publisher, “Two sisters and the cousin they grew up with after a tragedy are summoned home to their family matriarch’s inn on the coast of Maine for a shocking announcement. Suddenly, Isabel, June, and Kat are sharing the attic bedroom—and barely speaking. But when innkeeper Lolly asks them to join her and the guests in the parlor for weekly Movie Night—it’s Meryl Streep month—they find themselves sharing secrets, talking long into the night . . . and questioning everything they thought they knew about life, love, and one another. “
To show you why I love this book, here are a few quotes:
“Hear me. Care again. Look at me, she’d sent telepathically to Edward. But her husband’s attention had remained on his iPhone.”
She’d been emotionally lonely for months.”
“..a movie could transport you out of your life for a couple of hours.”
“Lack of joy is a symptom of something.”
“I felt like a different woman around him, like the person I’d always wished I was- smarter, funnier, prettier, sexier, more interesting.”
“She loved. That was what you needed to do to be a mother, above all else, Isabel knew. You needed to love.”
I bought this book. You should too. All opinions are my own. Now go watch a Meryl Streep movie.
