Join the Book Club

How does the book club work?

So, my aim for the book club is just to create a little community where we can discuss a book together every month / 6 weeks (depending on what works best). As we’re in quarantine and bored shitless, I’m sure we’re all in need of a bit of motivation to do something productive with the time we have.

Here’s how it’s going to work:

  1. Every month(ish) there will be a new theme. For example, our first theme was Dystopia.
  2. Through a blog post, I’ll provide a list of 4 books to choose from with brief descriptions of each book to help you decide.
  3. I will do a poll on my Twitter page in order to get a clear idea of which book people would like to read the most (for those of you that don’t have Twitter, do not fret: just drop me a message or e-mail letting me know what you’ve chosen).
  4. I’ll update everyone on which book has been chosen.
  5. Read the book.
  6. Discuss! We can do this through Zoom until human contact is allowed again, or if people would prefer, I’m creating a WhatsApp chat so we can always have a chat on there.
  7. That’s it!

If you’d like to be added to the WhatsApp group chat, drop me a message and I’ll chuck you in.

Alternatively, send me an e-mail using the form below.

Any questions, please let me know!

I hope this book doesn’t give Elon Musk any ideas – Reading Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro

haven’t felt this much emotion for a robot since WALL-E 🙁 Kazuo Ishiguro’s ability to make difficult, dystopian concepts so entirely plausible is unmatched – it really is no wonder that he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2017. In his new novel, Klara and the Sun, he delves into a world muchContinue reading “I hope this book doesn’t give Elon Musk any ideas – Reading Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro”

The Book Club 2021

The Book Club is back for 2021 and we’re beginning this year’s reading journey in February, which is LGBT+ History Month. To celebrate, we’ve got a slightly bigger selection of beautiful works by some of the greatest authors of the last century, from groundbreaking classics to informative new fiction. As always, I’ll put a pollContinue reading “The Book Club 2021”

Winter Books

Cosy, snuggly, hygge (pronounced hoo-gah, or so google tells me – think candles, IKEA showrooms and aesthetic knitwear found on Pinterest). Whatever you want to call it, I love this aesthetic and it’s certainly the mood we need for this January. For the purposes of this blog, it’s a literary genre too. How satisfying isContinue reading “Winter Books”
