Some of you guys have expressed an interest in joining a BCRL Book Club, so let’s make this happen!
To keep this fun, I’ll keep the rules minimal. The last Friday of every month, I will post my review/discussion of the month’s book club selection, and announce the following month’s selection. The comment section will be all yours, guys. I will do a similar thing on IG, so if you follow me there, you will have several options for participating. If anyone has book suggestions, feel free to email them to me; otherwise, I will basically pick things that I want to read (or re-read), and think you guys might also enjoy. I enjoy a pretty wide variety of genres (including fantasy, historical, mystery, classic, literary fiction, non-fiction, memoirs), although I tend to steer clear of “fluffy” chick lit (think The Shopaholic series) and erotica. I’m not ragging on those genres, they’re just not my cup of tea. I will try to mix up the genre every month to keep things interesting – and, like I said, feel free to chime in with suggestions.
OK, on to February’s book selection. Drum roll please …
GOOD OMENS by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman!!!!
This book holds a special place in my heart. It introduced me to the contemporary fantasy genre (hey, it’s probably not entirely coincidental that my own book features a demon protagonist), as well as the crazy geniuses of Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. It is laugh-out-loud kind of funny, as well as brilliantly smart. I couldn’t think of a better first pick for the BCRL Book Club.
Hope you guys will join me in reading Good Omens this month – don’t forget to check out (and share your thoughts) in the wrap up post on February 26.
