Saturday Book Club Reads
Saturday mornings are for coffee & Baileys & book club reads. ☕️📚
You still have time to jump in the @saltwaterreads chat next week for The Ever After and join in the @words.between.worlds August read with Monsoon Mansion. Because reading books with friends is the best way to read. 😉❤️
QOTD: How often do you book club or buddy read? Do you think it motivates you to read more, or more consistently?
For me, it is the best way for me to break out of reading in the same genre over and over. Because I read with multiple book clubs, I get a variety of book club picks - historical fiction, drama, memoir, literary fiction - and that means that I am constantly evolving as a reader. I try to pick things when I choose books for myself that will be diverse, but let's be honest, I love thrillers and that means I can never pass up the latest suspense ride.
I also love reading with a buddy, or a group, because the chat about the book inevitably leads me down a complete rabbit hole on the plot - no two readers are the same, which means our perspectives on the story are going to be completely different. Things that I have loved about books have been things my friends have hated and vice versa. That in itself makes the story so much more robust to me.
Plus it keeps me accountable - which means when I am lagging or in a reading slump, I have a very good motivator to get me back on track. And every reader needs that from time to time.
That being said - back to my Saltwater Reads pick - I only have a few days left to finish!
Happy Saturday friends!! 😘
