Welcome to the first ever SHJ Book Club!
I hope you’re as excited as I am, and the members of The Academy seem to be.
- I’ll start by telling you how this will work.
Current Book Club Guidelines:
Everyone is welcome.
Each month we will vote for a book inside The Academy. The vote will be based around book and genre suggestions from the entire SHJ Army (who we hope will get involved)!
On the first of the month I will put out an article, similar to this one, announcing the book choice for Book Club. I will also share in on social media outlets (Facebook, Insta, Pinterest). And, of course, the first Wednesday or Saturday of the month (first newsletter email of the month), I will tell the entire SHJ Army.
The comment section will open and discussion can begin to talk WITHOUT SPOILERS on the first article (this one).
Please comment if you’re getting involved and even introduce yourself if you’d like!
After I finish the book I will post a second article with my thoughts and overall review of the book. That will start the second part of discussion, and therefore the heart of the Book Club discussion.
Don’t read that second article until you’ve read the book. There will be spoilers in my review, and in the comment section.
The second article comment section will be where the real Book Club discussion takes place.
Without further ado, here’s out book choice for October 2018 (if you couldn’t tell by now):
Gaiman fashions these primeval stories into a novelistic arc that begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds and delves into the exploits of deities, dwarfs, and giants. Through Gaiman’s deft and witty prose, these gods emerge with their fiercely competitive natures, their susceptibility to being duped and to duping others, and their tendency to let passion ignite their actions, making these long-ago myths breathe pungent life again.
This is the first month, so hopefully it only gets more fun as we continue.
We’re open to any suggestions.
