Book Club: Astronaut Wives Club

Reading is my absolute favorite past time! At the beginning of summer I read Astronaut Wives by Lily Koppel. My goal was to finish the book before the show premiered so I zoomed through the novel the day before it aired. I could not put it down!

Did I love it because I am enthralled with the late 50's, early 60's? Probably so. Their fashion, Jackie O references, and sass made me fall in love with their story. They were totally the original Real Housewives of Astronaut men. The women in the story were so easy to love and I could not get enough of their Texas anecdotes. The book was an easy read and perfect for a woman who loves this era in history (and who doesn't love the 50's and early 60's?!)

I am equally as obsessed with the show. If you haven't started watching, I recommend binging on this show as soon as possible!

Yes, that is Lilly Pulitzer on Rene! Their outfits on the show could not be any cuter! Do you love the Astro Wives as much as I do?


  1. I read the book earlier this year before I knew there was going to be a show. I have seen each show. Like you I enjoyed the book and read it quickly. Unfortunately only one show left of the season. I wonder if it will come back next summer in some version.

  2. I got the pre-release copy of this book a few years ago and LOVED it. I haven't seen any of the TV series, but want to!!


  3. I met the author while I was at BookCon, and sped through the book while at the beach before my family and I started watching the show. I LOVED the book...but the show is kind of lackluster comparatively.

  4. I can't wait to start watchin this - loved the previews!
