Sept/Oct Book Club Announced!

Screen Shot 2017-08-15 at 3.19.25 PMI am thrilled today for so many reasons!

Not only is it Friday, but is also the first of September AND, to top it all off, today Chelsea and I are pleased to announce that we have decided on our choices for book club picks concerning September and October; we’re hoping that by announcing both right now it will give you all plenty of time to secure them from the library, or purchase if you’d rather, and will also give you plenty of time to read them.and I have envisioned alternating genres each month to keep things

Chelsea and I have been in deep discussion talking about how we want this book club to look; one of the things we envisioned was to alternate genres each month to keep things fresh, and were also wanting to pick some older books that are easier (and cheaper!) to acquire, so if you’ve already read them you can certainly join in the discussion we’re having as well. We weren’t really thrilled with folks having to come to two separate blogs in order to participate in the discussion, so this month we are going to try out a live Twitter convo! Don’t worry, we’ll be posting the questions ahead of time on our blog so that you can be prepared, but we wanted to generate more of an old fashioned book club feel with the convenience of modern technology connecting us from all over the world. We’ll be posting the exact date/time at a later moment, but our September convo will take place toward the end of the month, so feel free to start reading book 1 at any time!

Woo Hoo! The book selections! For the month of September, we decided to pick a historical fiction novel that was immensely popular, but neither of us had read yet. For October, we wanted to pick something that was a bit spooky (but not too scary!) so we went with one that I have not read yet, but is an absolute favorite of Chelsea’s.  She loved it so much she wanted me to read and she wanted to re-read it!

DRUM ROLL PLEASE…..

Exciting Announcement! @suspensethrill

Screen Shot 2017-01-04 at 5.43.21 PMComing at you today with an exciting announcement!

Chelsea from The Suspense Is Thrilling Me and I have decided to collaborate and start a sort of online book club called Suspenseful Clues and Thrilling Reviews!

If you follow us both, our blogs and taste in books are very similar, so we felt it was only natural to form a feature where we could come together and work on initiating the dialogue that we felt was lacking in many of our posts these days.

Our hope is to pick one book per month to feature as our book club’s choice; the idea is to announce it a couple of weeks before we start. Ex. We are announcing our pick for August in mid-July to give folks enough time to secure and read the book. We will then post our discussion questions in August, Chelsea and I will ramble on with our thoughts and we will leave the discussion open for anyone to join in once they have read the book. 

We are still working out the details but are also hoping to offer some sort of giveaway each month for those who participate as well!

Without further ado, here’s our choice for AUGUST:
