January Book Club: The Fault in Our Stars

Update 2/14/14 – Check out my review here

I loved having a three day weekend due to the snow storm this past week but it did give me some cabin fever. Having cabin fever makes me think a lot and what thoughts dominate my mind lately – this little blog of mine that is still very very new.

I realized its been about a month since I’ve read any books. I am avid reader or used to be. I guess with the holidays I just couldn’t find any time to curl up with a good book. Now that things have slowed down I’d like to incorporate my love of reading into this blog and start a book club.

Every month I’d like to choose one book to read and at the end of the month review the book with every one. It would be an open discussion and every one would be free to post their thoughts and ideas.

What books would I choose? Well I’d like to stick to fiction. I’ve read anything from Twilight to Gone Girl to If I Stay to Something Borrowed. I do have a thing for vampire and werewolf stories. Kelley Armstrong is one of my favorite authors.

How will I choose what book to read for the month? I’ll start off by choosing the books for the first few months but I would really like to pick books you all recommend.

Even if you’ve read the book already please still join in on the review and discussion at the end of the month.

The Fault in our Stars


I’d like to start the January Book Club with The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I’ve heard good things about it and I might be late to the game but I’ve finally downloaded it onto my Nook.

Here’s the synopsis from Barnes & Noble:

Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.

I know it’s a little late to start a book for January so I’ll post my review on February 14 so there’s plenty of time to read The Fault in Our Stars.

What are some of your recommendations for the next month?

    I used to be an avid reader too! I remember the thrill of 8 year old me staying up late with a book under my duvet and a torchlight. Never had interest all of those weekends years ago! I would read each and every day away. I think my late resolution should be to start turning pages more often You’ve inspired me 🙂 Hi5 for fiction!

    I’m totally already in a blogger book club. This month we are reading The Husband’s Secret. I totally feel like I am in college again with deadlines to read. Tons more pressure than I expected! As far as recommendations check out Kristin Hannah. Her best books are Winter Garden and Night Road. Fabulous reads!

      I’ll check those out. The Husband’s Secret sounds interesting too. I hate deadlines, I have enough deadlines at work, but if it’s an interesting book I can fly through it in a few days. Maybe I’ll make this like an every other month book club?

    I think you will love this book…I did when I read it last summer. I teach middle school and I first saw it when it traveled among my 8th graders. It’s a good read, and it will be a movie this summer, I think. Enjoy! Stopping by via the NE Bloggers Weekend Wander.

      I’ll have to see the movie when it comes out! So far I really am loving this book. I don’t know why I waited so long to read it.
      Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
