Alright, we want to hear from all of you. If you write something about the current book(s) we’re reading feel free to tag it “writeworldbookclub” and, if possible, we’ll reblog it or add it to a masterpost at the end of the month.
We also want to know how you want to participate in the book club. We’re here for all you followers - we want to know what you want to get out of this. Live chats? Analyzations of books by the mods? A forum of some sort in addition to tumblr?
LARGE SPOILERS below for Looking For Alaska
For those of you not looking for spoilers of any sort, at the moment, we’ll be hosting a tinychat tomorrow afternoon (EST) for a more general discussion and hopefully another one later on in the week.
Let’s start off a little discussion, nice and easy now:
What has been your favorite quote so far in Looking For Alaska? Why is it your favorite? Does it exemplify something about the book for you or is just beautiful on its own?
Reblog or tag writeworldbookclub in your reply!
We’d like to start with Looking for Alaska! We’re working on a set of procedures, which should be up sometime today. That should shed some light on what’s going to happen for the rest of the month!
Yes, we are! You should definitely start reading. The other mods and I are still working out some details… we’re starting up this club again after a long time, and we’re still trying to figure out how it’s going to work. We’ll have more information for you very soon, so look out for that. Thank you for sticking with us through this period of disorganization :)
You sent this a few days too late for it to be included in May’s nominations, but we’ll definitely put it on the list for June! Thanks!
Oh wow, that’s awesome! I like the book selection, too. I love LFA as well, and I’ve been looking to read I Am The Messenger for a long time. I’m glad you’re excited as we are! :D
The book we’ll be reading for May is Looking for Alaska by John Green. A little more information about the discussions and where they’ll be located will be posted shortly, but for now we’ll just start reading!
In addition, we’ll be reading I Am the Messenger by Marcus Zusak. Whether you chose to read it as well is up to you, but we will be using it to contrast and compare the writing style, plot, and characters.
I’m pretty sure that the book decision is made final on the first of the month, and then discussion happens all throughout the month. I’m not sure how much time is generally allotted for reading the books. It hasn’t been very consistent so far - at least not in a way I can see. I’m sorry I don’t know more, and I definitely agree there should be a page explaining it all! I wonder if C or one of the other mods has more information?
