Books and Socks Rock

Book Reviews, Bookish thoughts, memes and more!

Sarah M. Eden challenged readers to form a book club in launch of her “The Gentleman and the Thief” book and called it the Ultimate Book Club of Book Clubs. I was asked to be part of a book club for this event and we’ve had so much fun! We gave ourselves a name, logo and matching outfits! Follow these awesome bookstagrammers on Instagram. Handles in the picture. We even did a fun book reel (and have more planned!) but I can’t seem to post the video on the blog but you can watch it here on my instagram.

One of the BEST things about being in a book club is:

  1. Getting to know bookstagrammers in the group chat, not just the random like and comment on a post. These are some of the best women who big kind hearts and funny! We have fun and a lot of ideas!
  2. They get you – when you hear of a new book or cover reveal, they’re just as excited as you! You have found your people, your tribe. They will never judge you or your TBR pile 🙂 They’ll encourage and support you (even if you don’t read the book of the month!).
  3. Sharing deals on books, authors opening up the launch team, funny memes or quizzes, many people to answer questions from books to tech issues.
  4. Can’t forget the chatting about the book and having the author zoom in!

Okay, so I listed more than one reason to join a book club. I feel lucky to be part of two this year and to have met so many wonderful people, read great and interesting books. Some I wouldn’t have necessarily thought to read too! While 2020 has been a year with never-ending torment 🙂 I’m glad that virtual book clubs are a thing and can help with the stress of living the day-to-day right now. I hope you can find the same whether its in a book club, chatting with a friend you haven’t seen for a while, reconnecting. One of the biggest takeaways of 2020 is how important relationships, connection and socializing is for humans. Lockdown and basically being a shut-in really changed life and even how we look at others. The US election hasn’t helped, dividing the country even more, so don’t just look at a name or comment and dismiss someone or label them. Take the time to connect and remember that they’re a person feeling a whole X of emotions this year!
