Books and Tea Book Club | October Events
Hi guys, I’m checking in again to let y’all know the variety of things we have happening throughout October. If you want a full run down on what my Book Club has to offer please visit this post.
This is a special post as I’ll go into lots of detail about our Horror Read-a-thon “SpooksandTea” – this will be our third year running it!
Our events in September was the the read-along for Brave New World by Aldous Huxley and The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas!
As I wasn’t particularly interested and still struggling with the last classic we read together I opted out of Brave New World but there was a lot of members who did take part and said they really enjoyed it.
Now on too the Good Stuff!
The theme for the read-along this month is “Magic Month” to paid nicely with our Spooks and Tea read-a-thon. Its a good second choice for those who don’t want to read something spooky.
There we so many great suggestions put forward that I allowed the poll to have more than 10 books on it for once to see how that worked out. I had a feeling that one of three books would win and actually the one I was most excited to read did win. Woo!
So everyone should go and grab their copies of A Darker Shade of Magic by Victoria Schwab!
But our main event is #SpooksandTea! I wrote a few posts about it last year so this year I want to announce it properly. Spooks and Tea is a month long read-a-thon where you consume as much horror as possible.
