BOOK CLUB: Our November Books Are…
I am SO excited to announce November’s Book Club reads. Not only is November my birthday month, but it’s also the lead up to December which happens to be my favourite month of the year. I’m looking forward to getting cosy on the couch and pretending it’s Winter with a large mug of spiked hot chocolate and a book or two.
I thought, since the votes were so close, I’d throw a wildcard in there and have THREE books for November. As per, there’s no expectation to read all three, but I know there are a few of you that read three or four of the book club books every month anyway, so at least we’ll have more to discuss.
I also need to give you guys a little update on our October Book Club. If you follow me on Instagram and Twitter, you would have seen my posts about my October books getting lost in the mail. I’ve been posted out new books, but I honestly have no idea when they’ll be here. Could be in a week, could be two, could be never (omg hopefully not). I still do want to discuss our October books, but I’m going to have to postpone them until I actually get my hands on mine. [UPDATE: one hour after this post went live my original books arrived on my doorstep… Awkward]. I’ll of course keep you all updated, but I thought I should just make the announcement here so you aren’t wondering where/when the discussion post will go live. I also wanted to make this announcement in case some of you perhaps forgot to pick the books up and felt like you missed out – there’s still time! Possibly two to three weeks of it, in fact, so run out and grab your copy/copies today. [I’ll allow two more weeks for all of us to catch up until I write a discussion post – so this memo still stands!] If you need a little reminder, here are our October books.
Okay, back to it.
Are you ready to see which books we’ll be reading for our November Book Club?
To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han.
So many of you voted for this book, but also, most of you had already read it anyway? I voted for this one too, having already read it around two years ago, but it’s just that good. I can’t wait to experience all of the nostalgic feels with you guys when we discuss the books at the end of November.
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas.
This one received the most votes overall, and I’m not really surprised. The message behind the novel represents the #blacklivesmatter movement and I’m 100% here for it.
The Snowman by Jo Nesbø.
I mean, I’m sure this book needs no introduction. The trailer for it’s film counterpart is everywhere right now, and it’s getting me so pumped to read the novel. Each year in Oslo on the night of the first snowfall, a woman goes missing. Detective Harry Hole is brought in to investigate these odd disappearances, and stumbles into a terrifying game of cat and mouse with a twisted, evil serial killer. YAAAS guys I’m so excited to read this one.
Which of the above books will you read for our November Book Club?
