A few months ago, Judith and I started up an impromptu book club called Epic Recs. The aim of this was to force each other to read books that we have previously loved. You know, because Judith is a self proclaimed book pusher, and I just like forcing people to do things. It was a bit troubling when I hated Shatter Me, and I thought our friendship was over for good, but other than that it has been a great experience. Some of you showed a lot of enthusiasm for this book club of ours, and we had a few requests to open it up to our readers. And that is precisely what we’re doing!
The way this works is each month we will publish a post where participants can link up their Epic Recs posts, declaring how they liked their Epic Rec for the month, what they’re planning on reading for the upcoming month, who Epic Rec’d it, and what they recommended in return. You can do this in pairs, threesomes, or more, depending on how much you think you can handle! It’s totally up to you.
We’re also planning some other fun things and giveaways, although due to work and school commitments, the planning is going rather slowly. But we’ll get there in the end!
Anyway, on to the actual recs. I didn’t actually read my Rec from October, which was Just One Day by Gayle Forman. And Judith didn’t read Cirque du Freak (which she insists on calling A Living Nightmare *shakes head*) by Darren Shan either. Whatever, whatever, they’re coming up on our to be read piles soon. This month I recommended TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD by Harper Lee to Judith, because I’m an amazing friend and I want her to fall in love with Atticus. Judith recommended ELEANOR & PARK by Rainbow Rowell to me, because she adores it and thinks I will too. Tatum loved it also, so my expectations are sky high.
And, in case you want to join us, here is the linky for you to share your post! I’m looking forward to seeing what some of you recommend to each other, and undoubtedly being blamed for all the life-ruining books you’re about to receive. You can also grab a button to share on your blog if you wish!
