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:
- 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!
- 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!).
- Sharing deals on books, authors opening up the launch team, funny memes or quizzes, many people to answer questions from books to tech issues.
- 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!
