We have officially had our book club running for a year! Our online version started earlier than this but this last one was our twelfth session! This is super exciting and we are so happy we are growing and people are enjoying it as much as we are. We had such a fab little evening with regular book club goers and some newcomers too! The book was George by Alex Gino, a middle grade book about a transgender girl wanting to be seen as a girl by others too. Continue reading “LGBTQ+ Book Club Night 12 – George”
I cannot believe how quickly this years read-along has gone. To be honest, how quickly December has gone in 2017. We started our read-along this year on the 11th of December, and we always aim to have it completed on the 24th, which is today!
Hello! We are on day 9 of our Christmas read-along of I’ll Be Home for Christmas and I’m genuinely loving it so far. In my last post I wrote about how I was struggling to finish a book and reading a short story everyday has really helped me get back into reading! I’m going to update you on what my favourites are so far and what I love about them. Continue reading “Readalong Update (Blogmas)”
Today is the day that we start our eagerly awaited read-along! We have been hosting read-alongs on this blog for as long as we’ve been running it (over two years now, can you believe it?) and this Christmas is no different! A few weeks ago we announced that our read-along book will be I’ll Be Home For Christmas, a collection of short stories from a load of our favourite YA authors!
We announced our read-along for I’ll Be Home For Christmas a few weeks back, and it officially starts in just a few days (11th of December to the 24th if anyone is interested in joining in still)! I’m so excited to get to our read-along this year, and what’s even more exciting is that we are hosting the blog tour for the read-along!
The time is upon us, and that time is Christmas time. Each year so far on the blog we’ve organised a Christmas Read-Along. Mainly so myself and Sophie have an excuse to read something together. But last year so many of you got involved in our read-along of My True Love Gave To Me it became a whole lot more community based and exciting! It fueled us to do a very similar event this year!
For the past 12 days we have been doing a read-along of the BAME anthology, A Change is Gonna Come. It’s a wonderful book filled with short stories and poems by diverse authors, some well known, others slightly less known – all of which are amazing to now know of! As by now we have read the whole book, we are going to do a joint review of the book! Continue reading “A Change is Gonna Come Readalong Roundup”
