Paranormal Social Club
This month (November) we will be reading and discussing Poison Study by
Maria V Snyder. This is the first book in the series and should be
available for sale in a variety of formats and also in most libraries as
it’s been out for a couple of years now.
We are also hoping to work our way through Frostbitten by Kelley Armstrong
and On the Edge by Ilona Andrews but we are running a bit behind, which
is good news for you and gives you plenty of time to catch up! Hope
to see you there

December Book Group
Since everyone will be thinking of the Festive Season,
we are only having one Hosted Book Group Discussion next month. We
will be discussing The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks and probably
watching the movie too. It’s a really wonderful story, quite a small
book /quick read and a bit of a weepie so bring your hankies with you.
The Notebook – Nicholas Sparks (Hosted by Forgotten)

The rest of the month we will be investigating books for next year’s
book groups. Stay tuned for details of how you can help choose the
books we discuss in 2010!
