How did you like the first month of our book club? It’s honestly been so much fun for us. We were really excited about this feature and feel really humbled about all the comments and feedback we’ve gotten. Our Goodreads group is running beautifully, with lots of enthusiastic readers and interesting discussions. And how much fun was our very first Twitter chat? We honestly can’t thank you enough.
So the first month’s theme was FANTASY, and I think our TBR shelves pretty much doubled with some of the awesome titles everyone has read! While I devoured Rebel of the Sands, The Bone Witch, and Last Stand, Aly has been focussing on The Sleeping Prince and The Witcher series. I mean, since we both mainly read fantasy, this was a pretty easy one for us, but it was great!
That brings us to our second month, with a brand new theme! We had you vote for our next theme, and we ended the poll with 104 votes! You guys are so cool.
With a whopping total of 43%, the honour of February’s theme goes to…
BADASS FEMALE CHARACTERS!
I’m fairly sure you guys couldn’t have picked a better theme, especially with all the stuff that’s been going on. You can go all ways with this theme – from swashbuckling, dagger-throwing chicks to non-fiction to girls who start a feminist club. It’s really just about women you admire, don’t think too much about it. If you think it belongs in this theme, it probably does.
The Goodreads group has a whole thread dedicated to girl power recommendations. Here are some of ours…
I know I am reading What’s A Girl Gotta Do? and Truthwitch!
To celebrate our new theme, we have some giveaways for you!
- I am giving away several ebook copies of First Year this week. Make sure you follow my Twitter account, as I will be sending out tweets every now and then. They go out on first come, first serve! There is also a Goodreads group exclusive — talk to me about the books you’ll be reading for this month’s theme, and you’ll be automatically entered.
- Here on the blog, I am also giving away two ebook copies of Am I Normal Yet? Simply fill in the Rafflecopter form below. If you’ve already read the first book in the Spinster Club series, I’ll get you the next unread book.
- Both giveaways are international.
And last but not least, our poll for March’s category! Since fairytale retellings became such a close second in the last poll, we decided to add it to March’s poll again to give it a second chance. Vote, vote, vote!
Happy reading! What are you reading this month?
