Jacquelyn and I have decided to start a monthly book club. One of the main reasons for this is because I feel more motivated to read when it's with other people. There's just something about being able to share a story, characters, and the emotions they make you feel with fellow readers. So let's get into how you can participate!
It's very laid back and the rules are simple. All you have to do is pick up the book of the month, read it within that month, and DISCUSS! There is no commitment to join every month. Everyone can join when the book that month is something that interests them or something they've had on their TBR. You'll have from January 1st to January 31st to read it. We'll have a hashtag on twitter that you can follow and keep up with. This will make it easier for us to check out how everyone else is doing and share our feelings about the book.
For this month, we will be reading These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner. Everyone has been raving about this one, and with the release of the second one coming up this month I thought it was time to get started with this series. The hashtag we'll be using for twitter is #YABrokenStars. Even if you don't have the book yet, you can get it on Amazon, Nook, or iBooks for $0.99 until January 3rd!
I hope this turns into something really fun for those who decide to join. I love being able to share with the community. At the end of the month we will have a wrap-up with our thoughts. If you join and want to share a quick tweet with your thoughts we will be adding it to the wrap-up post.
Don't forget to use #YABrokenStars and leave a comment if you'll be joining us! Also, tweet us @YA_Bookmark and @jacquelynreads.
