Quarterly Book Club Updates!

Quarterly Reads 3

Hurrah!  We are six days into the Third Quarter of the year.  I’m excited, really I am, since the Quarterly Book Club is now six months old, and slowly making it’s way to it’s first anniversary!

The Third Quarter: Supernatural-Paranormal-Mystery

For this Quarter, the Book Club is exploring the Supernatural/Paranormal/Mystery genre.  Think vampires, ghosts, werewolves, mystery stories, and there you have it!

For me, this isn’t a genre I usually read, since I generally prefer something a little bit more realistic, however, like with the other Quarters that have passed, I’m definitely up for something different!

With Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (by Ransom Riggs) and The Golem and the Djinni (by Helene Wecker) succeeding at the top of the Quarterly Book Club Quarter Poll, it shall be a very entertaining and unusual quarter I think! (Gosh that sentence sounds odd to my ears! But well.)  I’m particularly looking forward to both those books since before the Quarter Poll results, I can’t ever imagine myself taking the time to read them–another reason why I’m loving my book club, I get the chance to diversify my reading even more than ever.

Along with the top two main reads (while we say they are the top two, Sam and I totally understand when one can’t get a hold of both books!) this Quarter’s available reading list is even longer than ever, with a variety (granted most are more ghost-paranormal-mystery related than supernatural) of other reads to fill up the remaining two book reads for the Quarter (since we do go by–top two poll result books, plus two of your own choice books from the poll list).

"The Quarterly Book Club"

The Quarterly Book Club is designed for the busy reader, with Quarterly reading challenges as well as Yearly challenges for flexibility. It’s also a place for personal reading challenges, book discussions, and essentially sharing your book tastes with others of similar tastes. Although we mainly focus on YA novels, that does not mean that we don’t read Adult or Middle Grade novels.

  1. What a good idea this is. I hope its been successful. I’m not really a para-normal kind of fellow myself, unless you are talking about some of my self-catering efforts, but I agree reading outside your normal genres is a healthy thing to do, and you are to be applauded for helping to make that happen 🙂

    • Sam and I are working on the Club 🙂 . Diversity is important in reading, and so far it’s certainly been interesting this year! I’ve definitely picked up a number of books I would never have read if it wasn’t because it was on the Poll List!
