Hello lovely book group members,
So, this is short and sweet as I’m typing this as I run out of the door tonight.
Next month- June is when we are going to read Mother Tongue by Julie Mayhew.
July- We are going to read That Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
Hope to see you on the 9th June!
Have a great month
Hello lovely group members,
Just a reminder that the May meeting is taking place Friday 5th May at 6:30pm and we will be reading Ink by Alice Broadway.
June is when we are going to read Mother Tongue by Julie Mayhew.
Voting for the book for July is now open, so go vote vote vote!
I look forward to seeing you all in a few weeks time.
Thank you for coming to the session on Friday. Just messaging to remind you all that there are some date changes coming up and to also discuss the books.
Our next session is on Friday 7th April- Blade and Bone by Catherine Johnson.
The 5th May session- I know we said we would read Mother Tongue by Julie Mayhew this month HOWEVER, there was a bit of confusion re the dates and one of the members who really, really, wants to read and discuss it actually can’t make the session as thought. How do you feel if we were to switch up and read the book we are voting for this month for May and Mother Tongue in June? Feel free to object if you have a problem with the suggestion, we’ll talk again in our next meeting.
9th June- Suggested book- Mother Tongue by Julie Mayhew.
Don’t forget to vote on the voting page!
Hope you have a good few weeks, happy reading.
Just messaging to say I accidentally took the pieces of paper home with me on Friday… just gone to upload the voting selection and obviously the papers are not on my desk as I pocketed them. Please come back tomorrow…
The results are in and the voting has spoken, the book with the most votes is Vango by Timothee de Fombelle, so that will be the book we read in March. The next few sessions go as follows:
Friday 10th February-The Beginning Woods by Malcolm McNeill
Friday 10th March- Vango by Timothee de Fombelle
Whoop. Hope to see you all then and don’t forget to vote for April (when the new voting is up on Monday!)
Just wanted to do a quick post update with the information about upcoming sessions. SO.
Friday 13th January- Max by Sarah Cohen-Scali
Friday 10th February- The Beginning Woods by Malcolm McNeill
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and here is to a 2017 full of fun reading group sessions, huzzah.
Apologies for the day delay in getting the voting on the website. Voting for February is now open, so please go to the Books Voting page on here and place your vote. I’ll announce the winning title at our next meeting.
Talking of next meetings, we’ll be meeting on Friday 9th December to discussing ‘I’ll Be Home For Christmas’, which is the short story collection here. We’ll be having a mini festive party with more food compared to normal (mmm) so be there or be square*
Our next session after that is in January, Friday 13th January where we will be discussing ‘Max’ by Sarah Cohen-Scali. This is the book that we chose but I pushed back to January.
I hope you have a great month! Happy Reading 🙂
*if you can’t make it I hope you have a lovely Christmas and New Year period.
