Are you a book lover? Are you one to embrace and spread all that bookish love? And on the hunt for new stories (*casually ignores growing tbr*) that makes your heart go BOOM?
You have found the right fam! Join your squad now!! And get to participate in reading sprints, buddy reads, readathons…and so much more!! THIS IS YOUR EXPLOSIVE SQUAD!!! GO BOOM GUYS!!!
Hello everyone, welcome back!
*breaks into a frenzied and excited dance with my two left feet*
How is this going to work?
We’ll be reading a book every month together from most genres from the Young Adult and Adult category: fantasy, contemporary, historical, sci-fi… etc (just no full romance or horror for we are scaredy cats *sheepish grin*)
As we read our book of the month together, there will be several discussion threads dedicated to different chapters you can access while reading. This is so that you can scream about that nasty plot twist or that tragic death while reading the book! Furthermore, this will allow a spoilery discussion of specific parts of the book and allow you all to hear what your fellow members before you are feeling at those pivotal moments of the book!
We will also be discussing and screaming over the book at the end of each month!
If you don’t have access to the book, we would be more than happy and glad to share a (digital) copy with you (though email). (do I smell a fReE bOok???)
December Book of the Month – FANTASY
Since this is the first month of Books Go Boom, Ashmita and I have pre-picked 3 possible Book of the Months! Here they are in all their bookish glory…
*starry eyes* (for future botms, we will get your suggestions!!)
AND WE NEED YOUR VOTE. COMMENT ON WHICH ONE WE SHOULD READ, EVEN BETTER IF YOU JOIN US!
The Raven Boys (Maggie Stiefvater), Spin the Dawn (Elizabeth Lim) and Set Fire to the Gods (Sara Raasch and Kristen Simmons)!
I’ve linked the book images to Goodreads for you to go read about them. If you have read these books already, come join us for a reread or take part in the discussions!
