Halfway!

So, by this point in our month, you should be at least half way through the book!

Unless you’re a fast reader and already completed, then congrats!

I hope everyone is enjoying or has enjoyed Alice Hoffman’s Practical Magic. I’m just over halfway myself and I’m enjoying the book quite a lot!

Since this is our first month as a book club, I’m still in the process of figuring out which way is going to work best.

There are currently two options you could go for, that I think will work best.

First option:

Do you have a wordpress blog of your own? Then simply write the review on your own blog with the title of the book in the subject, then in the tags put ‘longreadersbookclub’ so I can track it and reblog it onto this site.

The review should ideally be 100-300 words, but if you have a lot to say, then please do so!

An example of the title would be something like [Book discussion] Alice Hoffman’s Practical Magic. But go crazy!

Second Option:

Don’t have a wordpress blog? Or simply don’t want to post it yourself? Then, drop me an email (longreadersbookclub@gmail.com) and I’ll post it onto the blog myself.

The format should be similar to this, which can be found on the Contact page:

Subject:

[Book Review] Month and Book Title + Author.

Body of email:

Name

Social Media (If you want to!)

Did you like the book?

100-300 words on your thoughts of the book.

 

If you could post your discussion by the 31st of May, 10pm BST that would be wonderful, but for people in later timezones, then I’ll look for anything on the tags on the 1st. So, please don’t think I’m ignoring you!

I’m not anticipating a lot for the first month, which is fine, but hopefully we can inspire some great discussion this month and over the coming months!

 

One Week In!

How’s everyone’s progress on the Practical Magic so far?

I haven’t managed to get through as much of it as I’d hoped to be able to so far this month. But it’s been quite intriguing what I’ve read so far! I’m not entirely sure what to expect yet, as I feel like it’s a book that could surprise me.

How are you guys finding it?

Don’t forget you can suggest our book for next month here!

May 1st!

And here begins the start of the month!

I hope everyone has enjoyed the start of the novel (I shamefully haven’t had a chance to sit down and read yet, it’s been super crazy today for me typically!).

I just wanted to go over a few things that we can expect for the month of May, as I like to be super organised (for some things!)

Tomorrow we’ll start taking suggestions for next months book, so if there’s something you’re itching to read, make sure to drop it in the post tomorrow!

On the 18th I’m hoping to get the poll up for next month, so we can vote on the book we want to read. So, you’ll have a few weeks to get your suggestions in!

If you would like to post your discussion, please email me by the 30th of the Month and I’ll post them all on the 31st and we can all discuss our thoughts and findings on the book!

In the mean time, I’m going to be posting some general book-ish things that I find interesting, and they’ll be going up sporadically over the month, too.

Let’s have an exciting month, and happy reading!

This month we’re reading Alice Hoffman’s Practical Magic!

Tomorrow!

Tomorrow is the start of our first book club month! I hope you’re all as excited as I am! It’s certainly going to be an adventure!

If you don’t know what book we’re reading, you can find the link to the post here.

Just as a small post, if you would like to have your discussion posted, you can send your discussion to me on longreadersbookclub@gmail.com

You’re discussion should be about 100-300 words, so it doesn’t have to be lengthy, but if you have a lot to talk about, then please go ahead!

Remember to include your social media pages, too!

Happy Reading, everyone! I hope everyone enjoys the book, and we have a nice discussion around it.
