As you may be aware from the little button on the right there, I'm a member of the blogging community The Girl Gang, created by the absolutely wonderful Jemma of Dorkface.com. The Girl Gang is all about spreading positivity and good vibes throughout the blogging community and I've loved being a part of it since the beginning, I've found so many amazing friends and it's helped to grow my blog so much. There's absolutely no requirements for being a member, but you can sign up here and check out #TheGirlGang on Twitter for more info.
At the beginning of this month, Jemma announced the launch of the Girl Gang book club which is going to be hosted by yours truly! This is something we've been working on for a while and I'm really excited to get started! Whether you're already a voracious reader or you just want to read a book every now and then, the Girl Gang book club is for you!
We'll be reading a different book each month and that book will be picked by you on Twitter from a selection. Once that month's book has been chosen, you'll then have about a month to read it and at the end of that time we'll be having a big twitter chat using #GGbookclub to discuss the book!
I want to make this experience as active and community-based as possible and encourage discussion throughout the month so I've set up a Goodreads group for discussions and I encourage you to use #GGbookclub to tweet about your reading experience.
It was decided by book club members that the first book would be a recent release and the book that was chosen was The Art of Being Normal by Lisa Williamson! So make sure to get your hands on a copy of the book, get reading, get tweeting and get discussing!
The first #GGbookclub twitter chat will be on Thursday April 14th from 7pm until 8pm and we'll be discussing The Art of Being Normal!
I hope you decide to join us and I'm really excited about what's to come. I'm always up for future book suggestions and I'm always around to answer questions or just to chat, so don't be afraid to tweet me or email me anytime!
