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!

Agnes Shakespeare, An Icon – Reading Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell

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”

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”
