Announcing The Cursed Book Club

thecursedbookclub6r

Hello, lovelies! As you might have gathered from the title, I’m starting a book club. I was supposed to start it in February, but I got many insecurities about me being a mood reader and not managing to handle my own book club’s schedule – yes, I’m shitty like this. 

But I decided to give it a try after all, so here we are!

This is a YA Book Club, therefore we’ll read a young adult book each month. Anybody can join, I’ll make a Twitter group chat and I’ll be holding discussions on my blog for the monthly book each week as our reading progresses. So, if you don’t have a Twitter account, you can still join the discussions from here. I’ll make sure to post the reading schedule at the beginning of each month, so you can follow that.

Also, I’ve been thinking about how we should choose the monthly book and I decided that firstly, we’ll all discuss what books we all own or what books we really want to read and then the five most chosen books will be up on a poll on Twitter to chose the one we read that month. This way, many people will already own the book. I will also ask your feedback about this in the comments. But it was the most inclusive thing I could came up with.

If you decide to join the book club, you definitely don’t have to read every monthly book and it’s understandable if you can’t take part in the discussions. We all have things to do and I totally understand!

This is just a project that many people told me would love to join and I’m quite excited about it myself because I’ve never been a part of a book club – so, new things happening for everyone!

Also, we will only read backlist books unless I can manage to persuade authors/publishers to provide us with copies of ARCs for everyone. The reason behind this is that I want as many people as possible to be able to join the club and the fun!

I’m very open to all your suggestions, I want to be able to make you all feel welcomed and for this book club to be a great experience for all. Therefore, please leave all your questions, suggestions or anything else in the comments.

If you want to join the Twitter group chat, let me know here.

    I’ve already said on Twitter how much I love this idea and that I really want to participate, because this book club is amazing 😍
    I’ve never been in a book club either, but I would love to, especially with many amazing fellow bloggers ♥ Another thing I appreciate is how you try to make sure that as many people as possible have access to the book we choose! 🙂 New releases are cool, but backlist titles are so much easier for me to get or already own.
    I cannot wait for the first month of book club 😍

      Yesss, there are so many amazing book bloggers coming along, I’m sure we all will have such a fun time! ❤ As an international blogger, I know how hard it can be sometimes to access different books 😐 so I know some people might not get the newest releases. I’ll create the group on Saturday and we will start talking then! ❤ we’ll have the chat and choose the book for April by the end of this month.

    I told you already that I unfortunately won’t likely be joining anytime soon (my backlisted books include a lot of sequels .. so I couldn’t even really suggest anything), but I am sure this is going to be a lot of fun and I cannot wait to read the discussion posts and such 😀 this is such a nice idea for the community. ❤

      We’ll miss you so much, Kat! ❤😭 But don’t worry, if we ever read a series, you might join then! If this never happens, I’m sure we two will find a book to buddy-read! Thank youuu, love! ❤ You’re the sweetest, as always!
