Since attending a book club is kind of tricky right now, I’m hosting a virtual one during the month of February! Our first book? Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr.
I planned on re-reading Wicked Lovely in February because it’s one of my favorite series ever and what better time to start it all over again than my birthday month? I had mentioned buddy-reading it with a few friends, but suddenly, my list of friends to read it with began to grow and I realized that it would be way more fun to get more people in on this dark faerie goodness.
I broached the subject on Instagram last week and was met with a pretty awesome response! Some people wanted a chance to read the books again, and others had never heard of it but thought it’d be fun to give it a try. This is the official announcement for February’s group read of Wicked Lovely!
Let me tell you a little bit about the book and the plan for this virtual group read.
I read this series for the first time in high school and since then I’ve read it more times than I can count. These were the books that got me interested in faeries. I have read a lot of faerie books over the years, but I still think this is, without a doubt, the superior “faerietale.” It’s totally underrated and I’m not sure why. It really does have something in it for every fantasy-lover!
Here’s what you can expect from February’s group read: This is a read-at-your-own-pace book club. The book is not long, at just over 300 pages, but I want everyone to feel comfortable reading at their typical speed. So, don’t feel bad if you finish in a day or if it takes you until the end of the month! Each Sunday, I will be logging into our group chat platform, Telegram, to pose a few questions regarding the book. These will be spoiler-free questions to launch a discussion that everyone can take part in! If you’re in a different time zone, no worries. You can answer when it’s most convenient for you. I want this to be very relaxed and fun for everyone involved. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment or email me!
