June 2014′s official book club book is:
Title: Girl of Fire and Thorns
Author: Rae Carson
The Overview: Once a century, one person is chosen for greatness. Elisa is the chosen one.
But she is also the younger of two princesses, the one who has never done anything remarkable. She can’t see how she ever will. Now, on her sixteenth birthday, she has become the secret wife of a handsome and worldly king—a king whose country is in turmoil. A king who needs the chosen one, not a failure of a princess.
And he’s not the only one who seeks her. Savage enemies seething with dark magic are hunting her. A daring, determined revolutionary thinks she could be his people’s savior. And he looks at her in a way that no man has ever looked at her before. Soon it is not just her life, but her very heart that is at stake. Elisa could be everything to those who need her most. If the prophecy is fulfilled. If she finds the power deep within herself. If she doesn’t die young. Most of the chosen do.
So what happens now?

Otherwise, you are all invited to join in the fun!
We will be reading The Girl of Fire and Thorns throughout the rest of June and geeking out about it on our official Facebook page, followed by a meeting at Menchies Frozen Yogurt for those of you in the Southern Utah area.
This blog reaches a global audience, so not everybody will be able to make it to the meetings. Because of that, if you read the book and want to be included in the discussions, Charlotte and I will be willing to host a twitter conversation (#escaperealitybc) for anybody who shows interest (just send me a message through our Facebook group, or leave a comment).
I hope you all enjoy the book as much as I did! :-)
