Meet the Members

I run an online book club called Books and Tea and I love it dearly. I mean obviously I do or I wouldn’t still be running it.

I also wouldn’t be able to run it without the members as their activity within the club and their love for it too keeps it active and running smoothly.

I’m big on supporting the members and showing my appreciation for them and what better way to do so than to have guest posts from them – and thats what this feature will be.

For now I’m posting one every two weeks and I’ve provided the members with 4 open questions to answer and then a space to talk about anything they’d like – something they’re a fan of, something they do outside of the book club, or something they’re passionate about.

It took till mid April for me to realise I never made the blog announcement of this months read-along book and I’m very sorry for that. Travelling and having family members in the hospital made blogging not a priority.

News aside though, keep reading for an update on Aprils and what we will be reading throughout May.

Review: The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco

The Bone Witch by Rin Cupeco
Series: The Bone Witch #1
Fantasy | Young Adult
Length: 432 pages

Purchase: Amazon | TBD

Copy received from my secret santa

Synopsis:
The beast raged; it punctured the air with its spite. But the girl was fiercer.
Tea is different from the other witches in her family. Her gift for necromancy makes her a bone witch, who are feared and ostracized in the kingdom. For theirs is a powerful, elemental magic that can reach beyond the boundaries of the living—and of the human.

Great power comes at a price, forcing Tea to leave her homeland to train under the guidance of an older, wiser bone witch. There, Tea puts all of her energy into becoming an asha, learning to control her elemental magic and those beasts who will submit by no other force. And Tea must be strong—stronger than she even believes possible. Because war is brewing in the eight kingdoms, war that will threaten the sovereignty of her homeland…and threaten the very survival of those she loves.

Usually I would comment on how well the previous read-along went but due to March’s theme I am actually scheduling this way ahead of time so I don’t know how it went. I know I wont be taking part in February’s simply because I can’t afford to get another new book right now.

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!

Genre: Horror | Young Adult
Length: 448 pages
Published on 10th March 2016 by Orion Children’s Books
Purchase: Amazon | B&N | TBD | Waterstones | WHSmith
Dawn Kurtagich: Website | Twitter | Goodreads
Purchased for myself from WHSmith with a gift card

Synopsis:
Twenty-five years ago, Elmbridge High School burned down. The blaze killed three and injured twenty, and one pupil, Carly Johnson, disappeared. For two decades, little was revealed about what became known as the Johnson Incident. Until now. A diary has been found in the ruins of the school. In this diary, Kaitlyn Johnson, Carly’s twin, tells of the strange and disturbing sequence of events leading to the incident. But Kaitlyn doesn’t exist. She never has. Chilling, creepy and compelling, THE DEAD HOUSE is one of those very special books that finds all the dark places in your imagination, and haunts you long after you’ve finished reading.
