      Summer Supporter Giveaway   08/31/2020

      Going on a Summer Holiday (Sort Of...)     The summer giveaway for Patreon supporters is finally here and this time we're doing something a little bit different. I want supporters to tell me where you would go on holiday, if you could go anywhere. The winner will receive a bookish prize based on their answer!   Terms and conditions are as usual. Patreon supporters will be automatically entered into the giveaway and selected at random. As we're a little late this year the draw will be held on the second weekend of September. If you aren't currently a supporter but want to be involved in the giveaway you can sign up to support us here:   https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum

  1. I have both of these on my TBR! I have read a couple of books by Milly Johnson and really liked them, so I'm glad to hear you loved Afternoon Tea at the Sunflower Café! I've read one book by Jane Green which I really liked, so I'm glad you're enjoying Bookends so far! I'm in the middle of two books at the moment, and both of them I'm reading together with a different friend. The first one is The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah, which I think we will finish tomorrow, we started it last week Monday. I'm loving it so far. The second book is Artemis Fowl 6: Artemis Fowl en de tijdparadox (Artemis Fowl and the Time Paradox) by Eoin Colfer, which I'm liking. Since both of those are buddy reads, I'll probably pick another book to read for myself soon. Yesterday I finished Fablehaven 2: Rise of the Evening Star by Brandon Mull, which was a buddy read together with a friend. I also finished The Black Flamingo by Dean Atta (I read that one just on my own).
  2. Thank you, Muggle Not!! I think I've been reading a lot lately to help me cope with my stress .

  9. Read-a-thon 2020

    Yesterday / On Sunday I read Illegal by Eoin Colfer, Andrew Donkin, Giovanni Rigano and Chris Dickey, My Brother's Husband Volume 1 and My Brother's Husband Volume 2 by Gengoroh Tagame, and Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me by Mariko Tamaki and Rosemary Valero-O'Connell. I had a lot of fun during this read-a-thon ! I hope you (Hayley, Marie, Karen) did too!
  10. Read-a-thon 2020

    I'm glad the ending was spectacular ! I hope you like Moon over Soho and that it improves further on in the book like Hayley said . Happy reading with some manga ! Oh yes, I get like that too sometimes. Thanks . I didn't read lots yesterday, but what I read I enjoyed a lot. I read The Best We Could Do by Thi Bui, a graphic memoir about their life and their family's life in Vietnam and as immigrants in the US. It was an excellent read. Just before bed I re-read a children's illustrated book, Tom Gates 2: Excellent Excuses (and Other Good Stuff) by Liz Pichon, which was enjoyable to re-read.

    I loved The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet. I'm glad you liked it! Nice to read your review on it. Yes, the concept on AIs gets explored more in the second book, there is a third book as well though I enjoyed the first one the most and the third one the least.
