I'm going to be helping my friend with a monthly online book club!
SEPTEMBER BOOKCLUB PICKS
Is there anything better than reading with friends?
Are you apart of a bookclub? I have met so many amazing people in the past year being apart of #mommaleighellensbookclub
But, as it’s grown and changed over the past year, Leighellen decided she needed some help, so myself and Kristin (@k2reader) will be helping @mommaleighellensbooknook going forward.
We will always feature a historical fiction book each month, since that is what we all love and is what brought us together. And there will always be a BOTM pick! But now with additional input we will put our heads together and expand our genres which can only lead to better books, discussions, and communication.
So here are our picks for September and the chat dates! As well as a look at the two new faces behind the bookclub!
All chats will be on Sundays at 6pm MST via the Discord app. DM myself, @mommaleighellensbookclub or @k2reader if you’d like to join any of the book chats for this month!
A Million Things:Chat 9/12. A coming of age story about a grieving, resilient 10 year old girl. @spurr.emily
The Riviera House: Chat 9/19 This is a classic dual timeline historical fiction novel set during WWII that tells the story of the resistance fighters who risked everything to save fine art from falling into Nazi hands. @natashalesterauthor
Rock Paper Scissors: Chat 9/26 This was both a @botm and @authenticbookbox pick! A domestic thriller about a marriage on the rocks. @alicewriterland
The Sweetest Remedy: Chat 10/3 A comical romance about a young biracial woman who heads to Nigeria to learn more about her family history after the death of her father. @jane_igharo
Here’s how it works: We create IG chats for communication and friendship, the actual book discussions take place on the Discord app with a series of in depth questions, and sometimes we even get author chats via zoom. Come join the fun!
If you’re new to the discord app we can walk you through it. It’s very easy you can use on your phone, tablet or computer! It’s great and isn’t limited to participants like IG chats groups.
