Hello, dear Wonderlings, and welcome to the new year!
A new year comes with positive resolutions, new chances, new opportunities, and of course the OF WONDERLAND BOOK CLUB! We are so, so excited to finally start this project and we can’t wait to talk books with you. (And by that we mean even more than we already do.)
What’s different about the #OWBookClub?
Weeeeeell, instead of choosing a single book every month, we decided to choose a category instead. This can range from genres to more specific things, but always general enough to give you some play room. We didn’t want to send you to the bookstore to keep up every single month (although if you do need an excuse to go to the bookstore, here it is!), but rather we wanted you to be able to choose a book you may already own. This way, we’re hoping that #OWBookClub is available to everyone.
On the first of every month, we will put up a post (this post!) to announce the new topic for every month. In that same post, we’ll also add a poll with options for the next month. We want you to feel like this is YOUR book club. You call the shots.
To get things started, we have decided on January’s prompt, as well as February’s options. After this, we are leaving things in your hands.
For now, it’s time to announce January’s prompt!
… Wow, didn’t see that one coming, did you? Honestly, who is surprised? Not me.
So yeah, fantasy may seem like a pretty obvious prompt, but I feel like it’s the perfect one to get us all started! It’s a pretty generous and comprehensive topic, so you can go all out with this. This can be any type of fantasy: high fantasy, epic fantasy, urban fantasy, as long as stuff’s made up. You can start talking by using the hashtag #OWBookClub or use the comment section below. Which book are you reading? When are you reading it? Do you need a reading buddy? Maybe some chocolate and a pillow to drown your tears in? The hashtag is open to any and all discussions (which is to say, do keep it civil, but I believe in you guys)!
Don’t forget to leave a vote in the poll below!
If you’d like to have a say in future polls and prompts, leave some suggestions as well. The options are pretty much infinite. If you can think of it, we can do it. Examples are: over 400 pages, mental health, fictional worlds, contemporary, favourite re-reads, sci fi, dystopia, blue covers… Seriously, go all out.
Happy reading! Which book did you choose?
