I definitely dropped the ball this month. It slipped my mind to even prep and get nominations so May’s has officially been the quickest turn around on suggestions, votings, and winner announcements.
The choices for the read-along were a great selection, can you guess which won?
On Stranger Tides by Tim Powers | The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle | The Travelling Cat Chronicles by Hiro Arikawa | Metro 2033 by Dmitry Glukhovsky | World War Z by Max Brooks | Bird Box by Josh Malerman | Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen | Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin
There are some amazing names in this list but the winning book is:
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
I’m not a huge fan of classics so I’ll be sitting out of it but I’m considering watching one of the adaptations so I can take part a little as I’ve never seen any of them – and it fits with the theme.
Additionalyl each month we’re going to encourage members who don’t want to read the winning book to read a book of choice that fits the theme & encourage the discussion of these books and whether they’d recommend them.
We’ve kept all read-along chats open that have started this year so that members can hop in and out of past choices should they be new members or just didn’t have time that designated month.
For June our theme is LGBT+! We still have LGBT Pride chat that I created last June for all things relevant but now we need a book to fit this theme too, what are your suggestions?
