Launching our first book club has us feeling a bit like Oprah and we can’t help ourselves but want to scream, “You get a book, you get a book, you get a book!” Corny we know, but you can’t blame us!
The masses have spoken and our first book club picks are Divergent and Nice Girls Don’t Get The Corner Office!
Two books? Yes!
So, why two books at once? Because that’s how we roll! Since Divergent is a fiction pick and Nice Girls is a non-fiction pick, we thought, why not? We can mix a little business and pleasure!
We’ve included the links via Amazon.com for you to purchase the books. Full disclosure, if you purchase through our links, NextGen MilSpouse will make commission from the sales. No pressure, but if you’re an Amazonian, we’d appreciate the love!
Here’s the skinny on your picks…
Book Club Fiction Pick: Divergent by Veronica Roth
Book Description From Amazon.com: “In Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can’t have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.”

Book Club Non-Fiction Pick: Nice Girls Don’t Get The Corner Office By Dr. Lois Frankel
Book Description From Amazon.com: “If you work nonstop without a break…worry about offending others and back down too easily…explain too much when asked for information….or “poll” your friends and colleagues before making a decision, chances are you have been bypassed for promotions and ignored when you expressed your ideas. Although you may not be aware of it, girlish behaviors such as these are sabotaging your career!”
