The Story

Simply put? We are a group of readers from around the globe that enjoy reading together.  We met online in May during the global pandemic and decided to read together both to show support for each other as humans during a difficult time but also because we all loved reading.

 

We have been running our book club for around 6 months now and it's been really supportive and great - we decided its time for us to make a blog where we can share with the world what we read and our recommendations and opinions on books. We normally read a book or two a week and we decide around the 20th of each month our books to read for the following month via Zoom meetings.


We mostly read YA but we do sometimes pick Adult reads in particular for fantasy and sci-fi. If you are interested in being part of a global book club - feel free to drop us a message.
