Do you know CeeCee Wilkes?

I’ve always wanted to join a book club, so a book club via blog sounded right up my alley. Book Beginnings was just started and the first book they’re reading is

image  The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes Seriously, this book is phenomenal. It draws you in and you feel for Cee Cee immediately.

1. What was your first impression of Tim? I was unsure about Tim. His age gap and ability to charm women worried me. I immediately felt protective over CeeCee and wanted to make sure Tim was not using her.

2. If you were in CeeCee’s position, would you be willing to help your boyfriend in the way that she is willing to help Tim? Absolutely not. There are certain ways relationships become unhealthy, and in my opinion one of those ways is if a partner asks a manipulative/selfish request of his partner, that would be self serving only.

3. Why do you think CeeCee is so eager to please Tim? I think CeeCee is so eager to have a strong relationship. She has no living family and aside from her roommate she has no connections with others. Tim symbolizes hope and provides the companionship and love she so desperately wants.

4. Who do you think has it harder? Tim or CeeCee? I think CeeCee has it harder. I say this because I’m still unsure of Tim’s intentions and I think CeeCee has given her full heart to him and at what price?

5. What character trait(s) about CeeCee stuck out the most to  you in these first ten chapters? I think she seems incredibly bright and intelligent. She also seems so desperate to belong to someone, which is understandable given her situation.

6. Do you think CeeCee is as mature as she seems? No, I think she is a mature girl in some ways, but in others she is not. I think she lacks the ability to see what is best for her and follows too quickly. I think this is common for her age though, unfortunately these scenarios have made a common trait have very uncommon circumstances.

Run to the store and join in on the book club, it’s not too late. And this book is a page turner, fascinating.


  1. I love to read, but don't do it often enough. I think it's great that you're such an avid reader. should check out this blog:

    This gal's blog goes to my church. I've learned that she's a HUGE reader...has read over 3,500 books or something! Anyway...thought you might like it. :)

  2. haha...I just re-read my comment after posting it. I should have said, "The gal that writes this blog goes to my church." NOT - "This gal's blog goes to my church." HA!

  3. I have not yet read this book, but I will definitely be picking up a copy this weekend! It sounds amazing! Thanks for sharing!
