So we are planning to have a buddy-read over at RMFAO, my Goodreads Book Club.
It will be a month-long buddy read and we have some really great book options to select from. For the month of October, we’ve picked books released in 2020 that’ve been garnering the attention of the online book community. For this list of books, please see below. We have a poll on RMFAO’s homepage and anyone who is a member fo the group can vote there.
We will select the book with maximum votes and in case of a tie, we will have both the books with maximum votes as our BOOK OF THE MONTH and will read it (or them) in the month of October. As it is a month-long buddy read, you can join us anytime throughout October, the only requirement is to finish the book before the end of October.
We will be discussing the Book Of The Month throughout the month of October on a separate dedicated thread in the group itself but will be maintaining a spoiler-free policy till at least we reach the ‘more than half the month’ mark. After that even spoilers would be welcome as most of the readers tend to finish the book by then.
Here are the options to choose from:
- The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennet
- The City We Became by N.K. Jemisin
- Sisters by Daisy Johnson
- Such A Fun Age by Kiley Reid
- A Long Petal Of The Sea by Isabel Allende
- The Glass Hotel by Emily St. John Mandel
- Things In Jars by Jess Kidd
- If It Bleeds by Stephen King
- My Dark Vanessa by Kate Elizabeth Russell
And here’s the RMFAO Goodreads Poll:
(Please vote only if you plan to join the Buddy Read. Don’t worry about the book, we’ll be more than happy to provide you the ebook if you really want to participate in the read with us.)
Everyone is welcome to join and anyone can participate at any time during the month of October.
