Here at BOOK CLUB, we love and honor the summer. Each year we have taken a break and turned toward “lighter” reading fare. Something easy to get into, and easy to return to after you take that dip into the pool, or chase a child down the beach, or…well, you know, whatever. This year we are reading some “Tartan Noir”, as Scottish detective series are sometimes called. Denise Mina’s Alex Morrow series will be our reading companions for the summer. “Light”, may not be quite the word, but they are definitely a change from our usual reading fare!
Here is our summer reading schedule:
Still Midnight – June 11th – Linus’s Blanket
The End of the Wasp Season – July 9th – Devourer of Books
Gods and Beasts – August 13th – Linus’s Blanket
Twitter chat: TBD
Hachette Book Group has provided 10 copies of Still Midnight to give away for participation in our summer reading series. The books have all been published, so please pick up a copy at your book store of choice and or local library to join us. Winners of the second book will be drawn first from among those who participate in the first book discussion (whether you’ve won the book from us or picked it up on your own).
From the publisher:
Armed men invade a family home, shouting for a man nobody’s heard of. As DS Morrow tries to uncover one family’s secrets, she must protect her own.
The publisher providing these books with the understanding that we (and you!) will have a readerly discussion. There are no further requirements. If you are a blogger and review the book, great! If you are not a blogger, but review the book on LibraryThing or GoodReads, or talk it up on Twitter, and tell all your friends, wonderful! The main thing is for you to have fun and come discuss these books with us over the summer. If you would like to participate in Still Midnight BOOK CLUB, please fill out this form by Noon EST on Monday, May 20. Your mailing address will be discarded if you aren’t selected to participate, and used to mail you the book if you are. I do not share or retain any personal information. Only those selected will be contacted by email with further book club details.No purchase necessary and void where prohibited. Thanks and good luck!
