This Is Where I Leave You Book Club #TIWILY #TIWILYbookclub

So many movies these days are adapted from books. Have you ever walked into a movie theater and felt like you were the only person who didn’t already know the story? I’m one of those people who never likes feeling unprepared, so I usually read the book before seeing the film. I have a book to put on your radar, so that you’ll be prepared when the movie This Is Where I Leave You hits theaters on September 19. I also hope you’ll join me for the This Is Where I Leave You Book Club.

Pictures’ #TIWILY book discussion on the film’s Facebook 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!

I received several copies of the book and some other goodies to host my own This Is Where I Leave You book club. A few of my girlfriends and myself has begun reading the book this week, and will gather at my house before the movie release date of September 19th to dish about the book and enjoy some wine. Doesn’t that sound like fun? I love books. I love movies. I love getting together with my friends. This is perfect!

Jonathan Tropper’s novel This Is Where I Leave You seems to check all the boxes for my friends and I. It explores love, marriage, divorce, family, and loss. I am really excited to finish this book and see the movie. Here’s the synopsis:

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.

It’s completely relatable, don’t you think? Now onto the movie…

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”).

Have I mentioned that I LOVE Jason Bateman? Yup, I’m pretty excited about seeing the amazing group of actors in this film.
