Books and Tea Book Club| February Read-along
Seeing as though last months post went down well I guess this will become a monthly check in. I have the original post with a huge run down on what we offer but it is out of date. I’ll be creating a 2018 one …soon.
January’s read-alongs went really well and I successfully took part in the Comet in Moominland one! Want to see what we’re reading for February? Keep reading this post!
February usually ends up being romance theme to fit in with Valentines but I decided to spin it a little differently this year. I picked the them of Favourite (or most wanted to read) 2017 release!
So many good books were put forward to be included with the vote so narrowing the list to have a range of genres was actually really hard as I wanted to include every single book. I ended up picking 5 YA and 5 Adult books to go forward with a range of genres in each.
The selected books for the vote were:
As always it was fun to watch the votes come in and I was actually really really surprised by the few that were battling for the top spots.
After a little while I did another vote for the top four to allow people to re-vote if their choices weren’t that popular. The top for were Wonder Woman, The Last Namsara, The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue and The Last Dog on Earth.
But the clear winner was…
If you’re interested in reading The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue feel free to stop by the discord chat and sign up.
We have a dedicated chat to the book so you can discuss it with other members, and avoid spoiling those who aren’t taking part.
If you’re late or a slow reader then you can still join the Book Club and take part in reading either Beyond the Deepwoods or Comet in Moominland as I wont close these chats until the end of February! I’m well aware we aren’t all quick readers and have lives outside of books too – shocking I know!
As mentioned last month, the 2018 Series Read-along of His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman is still going forward. The aim is to move onto the second book around the middle of February but don’t fret because I have yet to pick up the first one yet either.

Oooo I’m definitely going to keep my eye out for these posts so I can join in one month – it sounds like fun! I just hope a book I own eventually gets picked 😂
Definitely understandable. Im not taking part bc i cant realistically buy another book right now.
Yeah, I’m on a ban because I spent a lot on books over Christmas so fingers crossed something I have pops up 🤞🏻
I really hope you’ll be able to enjoy The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue! I read that one for review and I absolutely LOVED it. It captivated me right for the start. I had some trouble loving the main character, but it was the kind of trouble you were supposed to have, and also I really liked the themes it discusses in the frame of historical fiction! Happy reading.
My recent post: http://oliviascatastrophe.com/2018/01/life-lately-december-january/
I’ve been meaning to read both The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue and His Dark Materials series BUT I got distracted…by other books. Might get round to them this year though we’ll see. :)
I hope you do :) i’ve heard good tings about them.
i’ve still not started HDM though oops. at least ive read it before though?
So have I. At least you have already read it though, that counts haha
Oh wow, nice choices for the read-alongs. I recently bought the first book in His Dark Materials series and well. left it as it is. But I guess this is the time to start it?
I am sorry that I am not that active on Discord book :( It’s just that it is too big and it overwhelms me.
I also wanted to read A Gentleman’s Guide but it is too costly for me and I can’t purchase it right now.
I hope your read-alongs goes fine :) Happy reading!
Haha no worries, I understand compeltely.
If you want me to restrict any channels for you (hide a bunch so you can’t seem them and make it easier to browse) let me know! I do this for someone else to help w their MH
Oh wow, it can be done? Then I would totally tell you. 😊
Totally :) just give me a message on there and I can customise it for you
