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:
- Every month(ish) there will be a new theme. For example, our first theme was Dystopia.
- 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.
- 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).
- I’ll update everyone on which book has been chosen.
- Read the book.
- 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.
- 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!

A stunning insight into the people surrounding the most famous writer in the English-speaking world, Hamnet is a novel like no other. When I picked up Hamnet I had no idea that I’d be delving into the world of William Shakespeare and family, specifically the death of his 11 year-old son, Hamnet, which went ontoContinue reading “Agnes Shakespeare, An Icon – Reading Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell”
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”
