The Literary Adventure Book Club

1 May 2019

I recently invested in a new Kindle. Whilst I do have the time to read at night, I don't like to turn on the bedside lights to read physical books, as the lights disturb Hadley; our almost 6-month-old who is happily still in our room (until she outgrows her crib!). Using a Kindle makes devouring books much easier, being backlit, it means I don't need to worry about disturbing anyone's sleep. Perfect timing, too, as Rachael, Amy and I thought it would be great to start an e-book club, putting our e-readers to good use and making the most of the selection of books available at our fingertips.

Each month we are going to select a book which is either free or very low in price, available on e-readers. There will be a mix of genres, selecting one book per month to read and at the end of each month, we will be sharing blog reviews featuring our thoughts on that month's read.

Of course, we would love anyone who loves reading and uses an e-reader themselves to join us each month. There's no pressure, no obligation to take part if you don't fancy reading one month that's absolutely fine. You won't be expected to share a review and you certainly don't have to have a blog to take part; we decided that to help make our book club as inclusive as possible across platforms, we would use a hashtag, #TheLiteraryAdventure, where we could share, check in and chat about each month's book.

Here's some specifics;
You don't have to have a Kindle. Any device that works as an e-reader, where you can access the monthly read, works good enough for us!
We're keeping it budget friendly. That means either free or super cheap books will feature in The Literary Adventure, and, if a special book comes along that is slightly more pricey than usual and not something you want to purchase, you can skip that month's read.
Amy, Rachael and I will each review that month's read on our blogs. You don't have to have a blog yourself to take part - you can share with us via social media, too! This is not a book club just for bloggers!
Make sure you use #TheLiteraryAdventure across social media so we can connect and discuss as we go through each month. I'll be sharing on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook where you can find me @TattooedTealady!

We're kicking things off in May with The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid. I would love to hear if you like the sound of The Literary Adventure and whether you'll be taking part! I'm excited to get stuck in and be introduced to new authors and possible literary favourites!
