It’s always fun to read the book before the movie, right? As a former first grade teacher, to me, reading is probably one of the most important things you can ever do. You are never too old or too cool to read. I love getting lost in a great book, and being able to do it with friends? It doesn’t get much better.
I recently had a few of my local blogging friends over to start a mini book club for the new book turned movie, THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU. Each of us received our own copy of the book, and are going to read it. I’ll be following up in about a week with everyone’s thoughts. I was lucky enough to be joined by Emmie, the talented interior designer behind Blue 11 Interiors, Lauren, the stylish gal from Classy and Fab girl, Caitlin, the fashionita rocking outfits at Gussied Up, and newbie blogger, Jenny, from the inspirational blog Keep Calm, Enjoy Life.
We had a great time taking a look into the book, THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU. Check out some of the photos from our first book club meeting.
You can join Warner Bros. Pictures’ #TIWILY book discussion on the film’sFacebook page each Wednesday, and take part in the conversation for a chance to win signed movie posters and a trip to the premiere in Hollywood!

This Is Where I Leave You – In Theaters September 19
The dramatic comedy “This is Where I Leave You” is directed by Shawn Levy, and based on the hilarious and poignant best-selling novel by Jonathan Tropper. It features a starring ensemble cast including Golden Globe winner Jason Bateman (“Arrested Development”); Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Tina Fey (“30 Rock”); and two-time Oscar® winner, multiple Golden Globe honoree and 2013 Emmy Award nominee Jane Fonda (“Klute,” “Coming Home,” HBO’s “The Newsroom”).
When their father passes away, four grown siblings, bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens. Confronting their history and the frayed states of their relationships among the people who know and love them best, they ultimately reconnect in hysterical and emotionally affecting ways amid the chaos, humor, heartache and redemption that only families can provide—driving us insane even as they remind us of our truest, and often best, selves.
