Thanks, Samantha!

Kamil's Pick

It's time for another Throwback Thursday!

This week, one of our group members, Kamil, suggested Touch the Dark.

He gave this read FIVE STARS but states that it took two reads to fully appreciate it.

If you're looking for an urban fantasy with supernatural intrigue, this one's for you.

Cassandra Palmer can see the future and communicate with spirits—talents that make her attractive to the dead and the undead. The ghosts of the dead aren’t usually dangerous; they just like to talk…a lot.

The undead are another matter.

Like any sensible girl, Cassie tries to avoid vampires. But when the bloodsucking mafioso she escaped three years ago finds Cassie again with vengeance on his mind, she’s forced to turn to the vampire Senate for protection.

The undead senators won’t help her for nothing, and Cassie finds herself working with one of their most powerful members, a dangerously seductive master vampire—and the price he demands may be more than Cassie is willing to pay...

Poll: October Group Read

 Members, choose your October group read, and vote NOW!

This group is member driven so don't be shy about writing in additional suggestions.

Voting ends on September 25th.

UPDATE: This poll ended early due to lack of participation.

Throwback Thursdays

Every Thursday, we will be adding a blast from the past book!

These are all chosen from member suggestions but are not required group reading.

This gives members the opportunity to share some of their favorite re-reads with all of us.

Our first throwback is Still Life with Woodpecker.

Looking forward to more suggestions and great discussions!

Still Life with Woodpecker is a sort of a love story that takes place inside a pack of Camel cigarettes. It reveals the purpose of the moon, explains the difference between criminals and outlaws, examines the conflict between social activism and romantic individualism, and paints a portrait of contemporary society that includes powerful Arabs, exiled royalty, and pregnant cheerleaders. It also deals with the problem of redheads.

September Group Read: THE BONE SEASON

Our first poll results are in, and The Bone Season was chosen for our September group read!

All group reads will be scheduled to begin on the first of each month with the end date marked on the fourth Wednesday of that month (give or take a day).

Discussion will begin immediately after and continue in conjunction with the next month's release.

Polls will continue to let members choose the material, so make sure you are participating.


UPDATE: All group reads will begin on the first of the month and end on the last day of the month.

The official discussion thread will also start on the first of the month.

SPOILERS: Please, do not engage in the official discussion thread until you have completed the book.

Desperately Seeking Group Members
