You'll love this one...!! A book club & more 4292 members
We are an international group who share an interest in reading all genres of books. We focus on four main areas: 1. Monthly Group Themed Read. Each month our members select a small set of related books to read and discuss as a group. See our bookshelves to see our past reads. 2. Challenges. We have monthly challenges based on various themes. We also have a year-long challenge. 3. Bi-monthly TBR Topplers. Now that we've given you all sorts of recommendations, we support your efforts to read the books that you've shelved. Every other month join us in a 'read-a-thon' to help reduce your groaning shelves. 4. Buddy Reads. Do you want to read a book and discuss it with others? Our Buddy Read section is open for this purpose. We're a relaxed, non pressure group of folks who just want to have fun, and to read some great books in the process.

Sarina Rose was born to first generation Italian-American parents in New Jersey. Her family plays a large part informing her characters. Her father’s family occupied the four apartments in the house build by her paternal grandfather. “I was free to wander through the apartments.” Her mother’s family lived only about five miles away and added to the warmth and charm of her upbringing."My parents were very civic and community minded and brought me the same. So  I became a member of the Safety Patrol and Girl Scouts."

Ms. Rose attended local public schools. She graduated from Cliffside Park High School and the College of St. Elizabeth in Morristown, NJ. She learned to use the public library as a youngster. “I remember being a member of the summer Bookworm Club at the Fairview Library and a volunteer in my school library during fifth grade.” As a graduate of the College of Saint Elizabeth in Morristown, NJ with a B.A. and a certificate to teach Spanish grades K-12 she set her sights on teaching. She balanced teaching with raising with raising four children, tutoring, selling World Book Encyclopedia, tutoring and servicing insurance accounts.

“I continued my studies at Kean University graduate school accruing credits in computer usage, reading, liberal studies, science, art history, music history, and cooperative education courses. Somewhere along the way I took an on-line creative writing class and began what I really love to do now which is write stories full time. It is no struggle for me to sit with my laptop in front of the TV and create stories.”

Sarina says she is lucky enough now to live near the beach on the Space Coast in Florida with her husband and their two lovable dogs, Andy, a Labradoodle, and Cici, a Shih Tzu. “I think that is luck enough, but I am also very lucky to have had a great family. My children and I live far apart and do not see them often enough. However, I do enjoy my time with my characters as company. I am never bored or lonely. However, I do leave the house sometimes to volunteer for three interesting local organizations.”

Sarina Rose is a member of Space Coast Authors of Romance and Romance Writers of America and numerous Facebook writers and readers groups. She leads lively discussion groups at two local senior learning centers. She is a member of the Melbourne Women’s Club. “As the Arts Chairperson I contribute articles to our award winning newsletter on local performances and exhibits. I sometimes quilt children’s blankets for local hospital.” Ms. Rose volunteers two hours a week as a receptionist at the Ruth Funk Center for Textile Arts at the Florida Institute of Technology where “fiber arts rule."
