Be a Part of our Traveling Book Club!!


March's Book:  A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray

As many of you are probably aware, a bunch of us started a book club to read FORBIDDEN by Tabitha Suzuma together.  We had so much fun doing this book club, that we decided to keep it going!!  Every month we will pick a new book to read and a new blog to host.  You do not have to host in order to participate!! 

Each blog that hosts can conduct the book club however they want.  I split the book up into 5 chapters, twice a week, and wrote posts about those chapters on Mondays and Thursdays.  Then we had 2 live chats, one in the middle of the book, and one at the end.  But this is only a suggestion.

We will vote each month on the next month's book.  And you can feel free to participate one month, and not the next, if you choose.

We decided to keep the name "Forbidden Book Club" to honor our first book, and.....we just liked the sound of it!  Maybe it's our mischievous side!

You can vote on next month's book, or sign up to host below!  If you would like to get emails reminding you of book club times and chapters, sign up here:

Subscribe to ForbiddenBookClub



I will keep this page updated with the new polls, and the sign up sheet for new members!

I'm really excited about this!!  I had SO much fun reading and discussing our first book together!  Follow The Forbidden Book Club on Twitter using the hashtag #ForbiddenBookClub.  Find all my Book Club posts here.

The Forbidden Book Club was started by Reading Teen, Once Upon a Twilight, Katie's Book Blog, and Books Over Boys.

  13. Question!!!
    I want to join in during January as I just took out Looking for Alaska from the library, can i just comment on Once Upon a Twilight's posts of the chapters (as I did here with Forbidden) or do I have to officially sign up somewhere?
    I have to say though, about the signing up, I can't promise to be part of every book discussion every month - if there was such a rule.

  14. Sheepa, you don't have to sign up for anything. You can be as involved or uninvolved as you want! The sign up is just if you want email reminders, and the google doc is just if you want to host the club.

    Feel free to just stop by the posts on the hosting blog and just leave comments! :D

  15. I just put my email down in the box that says "Subscribe to ForbiddenBookClub" - That's the one for the updates? I didn't just put my name down for hosting did I? Because I don't want to host :S
