Books and Tea Book Club | 2019 Series + January Read-alongs
Happy 2019 guys, we’re starting off the year with lots of choices for the Book Club! We not only have our regular monthly read-along themed around “We can’t believe we’ve not read it yet”. But we also launched 2 full series read-alongs for the full year.
I know, I simply like to keep everyone busy with good books!
At the start of each year we pick a series to read throughout. Usually we would vote on it however this year I went ahead and picked two – one for selfish reasons and the other due to popular demand as it kept coming close in read-along votes.
The Broken Earth trilogy by N.K. Jemisin is made up of The Fifth Season, The Obelisk Gate, and The Stone Sky. This the read-along due to popular demand and I’m hoping later on this year I can pick up a copy for myself.
The selfish read-along simply because I want too is the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer. Look its been years and this is one of the series that got me back into reading so I want to re-read it due to nostalgia and with a more critical look on it. Oh yeah, when I say full series I mean full; Twilight, Midnight Sun, New Moon, Eclipse, The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner, Breaking Dawn, Life and Death: Twilight, and all the movies.
So onto our monthly read-along right?
I gave Books and Tea members the theme of “Wow, I Can’t Believe We Haven’t Read This Yet” and there were a lot of suggestions that caught my interest. The winning book though was Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. Which luckily I do already own so maybe, just maybe, I’ll fit this in this month too!
I will be writing up an updated Chat Overview for this year but here is last years post should you want to know more about the Book Club. I hope at least one of these books interest you, if not we’re also taking suggestions for February’s Read-along of “Lesser Known Books” until mid-week. Then I’ll get a poll up next weekend for people to vote on their favourite choice.
