The Beginning of Blogger Book Club

First of all, HAPPY FRIDAY! I know it was only a 4 day week, but it just seemed way too long.

Since it's Friday, I'm here with a surprise!
Well, if you follow me on Twitter (shameless plug) it's probably not that big of a surprise.

Myself, Jen, Miranda, Amy, Melissa, and Stacie
 have teamed up together to create a Blogger Book Club!

*cue geeky, teenage girl screaming*

At the beginning of month the six of us are going to chose a book and then at the end of the month whoever read the book can post a review about said book and link-up together.

ALSO I've created a Blogger Book Club page on Good Reads. This is open to anyone and everyone! On this page we can create discussion boards each month about each book and well, discuss them. I may even ask specific questions just to get opinions flowing. To access the Blogger Book Club page you'll need to create a free account and then join the Blogger Book Club (here). On this page you can also give suggestions for future book club books.

Other bloggers (including Jen, Miranda, and Amy) have posted book reviews on their blogs before and that's how I've found several of the books on my "To Read" list! So this is a really fun way to maybe find books that you wouldn't normally read or books you've never heard of!

AND in case I haven't made it clear, we want YOU to read the books with us and we want YOU to write a review and link up with us too! We want YOU to discuss with us on the Blogger Book Club page. YOU. It's open to EVERYONE!
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Now that I've gotten your attention..
The 1st Blogger Book Club read is going to be..

Good Reads description:
Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick.

What Lou doesn't know is she's about to lose her job or that knowing what's coming is what keeps her sane.

Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he's going to put a stop to that.

What Will doesn't know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they're going to change the other for all time. Link: Me Before You
Barnes&Noble Link: Me Before You

The link-up with be hosted on Friday, September 27th.
However the discussions will be open on the Blogger Book Club page all month long, so you can feel free to add a topic or ask a book related question and people can answer as they finish the book.

Happy Reading!
