Hello and Happy Friday, Savvy Readers! Hope your week was fantastic and here’s to wishing you an even better weekend! This week’s bookmarks include a lot of reading suggestions and a cool giveaway!
1. The Savvy Reader Book Club (SRBC for short!) is back with the July book club pick. This month? The Curiosity by Stephen P. Kiernan. This powerful debut novel is being compared to The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. Check out our post for discussion questions for your own book club, as well as drink pairings and supplementary reading material.
2. Fans of Lauren Conrad, take note: HCCFrenzy hosted a Q&A this week with the star of The Hills and author of The Fame Game series. It is a must read for great advice and make-up suggestions. Read it here.
3. This week we hit a Twitter milestone here at The Savvy Reader: 5,000 Twitter followers and counting! This is all thanks to you guys, you Savvy Readers, you! We’ll be announcing winners of our celebratory giveaway this Monday, so stay tuned!
4. We know Savvy Readers love their lists, so here’s one for you from Buzzfeed: 14 Books Your Book Club Needs to Read Now. Such a great list! I really loved Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walters, The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein, and Canada by Richard Ford.
5. We’re ending this week’s Bookmarks with a special giveaway: SRBC is giving away a set of next month’s book club pick, The Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo! The Ghost Bride is described as a “remarkably strong and arresting first novel.” All you have to do to enter is send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and include your book club’s name, number of members, and contact information to be entered to win!
