Good day, dear readers! June has rolled in, and summer is just around the corner! I am so excited for the adventures that summer holds and fun new books to read as well! This month, we are currently reading Mortal Arts, and it is a fun read!

While we are reading through our current book, I am excited to announce our next one! This summer is going to fly by, and we are going to fill it with great reads and a little fun too! We are going to have the summer reading program coming back for adults and youth!

For adults wishing to participate in the summer reading program, just drop an email with your name to bookclub@mymilitarysavings.com. For kids, we only need their first name and last initial, with their age (so we can break them into the proper age group). We are working on the layout now, so it will be sent out as soon as it is finished! We are excited to have the summer reading program again!

But onto our next book, without any further delays! We are going to be reading The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix. I am so excited to read this one and share it with you!

The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires: Goodreads Excerpt:

Fried Green Tomatoes and Steel Magnolias meet Dracula in this Southern-flavored supernatural thriller set in the ’90s about a women’s book club that must protect its suburban community from a mysterious and handsome stranger who turns out to be a blood-sucking fiend.

Patricia Campbell had always planned for a big life, but after giving up her career as a nurse to marry an ambitious doctor and become a mother, Patricia’s life has never felt smaller. The days are long, her kids are ungrateful, her husband is distant, and her to-do list is never really done. The one thing she has to look forward to is her book club, a group of Charleston mothers united only by their love for true-crime and suspenseful fiction. In these meetings, they’re more likely to discuss the FBI’s recent siege of Waco as much as the ups and downs of marriage and motherhood.

But when an artistic and sensitive stranger moves into the neighborhood, the book club’s meetings turn into speculation about the newcomer. Patricia is initially attracted to him, but when some local children go missing, she starts to suspect the newcomer is involved. She begins her own investigation, assuming that he’s a Jeffrey Dahmer or Ted Bundy. What she uncovers is far more terrifying, and soon she–and her book club–are the only people standing between the monster they’ve invited into their homes and their unsuspecting community.
