November 2nd: Most Misleading Synopses
-- Ever read a synopsis and think it sounds dumb, but then you read the book years later and it's actually amazing? Ever read a synopsis and think it sounds amazing, but it actually turns out to be nothing like the synopsis? Ever have a synopsis spoil something that happens 75% of the way into the book so you just spend most of your time waiting for that one element you already know? This is the topic for you.

November 9th: Characters You Used to Love but Don't Anymore
-- These are the characters who you used to adore, but now you don't. Maybe they changed a lot. Maybe you outgrew them. Maybe your outlook changed and now you can't stand them. Maybe you don't even hate them, you just are neutral about them when you used to run a fan blog about them.

November 16th: Favorite Publishers
--I thought this topic would be a cool way to examine what we read and what publishers put out our favorite books. I encourage you to take a look at your shelf and figure out which books come from which publishers. I think you'd be surprised how many probably end up coming from the same publishing house! Plus, this is your chance to introduce us to some of your favorite small presses or imprints. We talk about the contents or the wrappings of books a lot in this group, but rarely do we talk about the people that bring them together.

November 23: Books I Want to Re-Read
--Though it seems like we are all constantly chasing the next upcoming release, let's take a trip down memory lane and talk about some books that we'd like to re-visit.

November 30th: Favorite Villains
--It's been a little while since we've done the villain topic, and this one will definitely be a recurring one in the group as there are always new villains to talk about. I STRONGLY ENCOURAGE YOU TO AVOID HARRY POTTER CHARACTERS!!!! Yes, yes, we all know that Umbridge is the ultimate villain, more hated than Voldemort because she is so realistic. We know that we all love Bellatrix's particular kind of crazed obsession. We all know that Voldemort is such a classic that he is the first person to jump into our minds. We all know the Dursley's suck. See? I strongly encourage you to point out some different villains so that Harry Potter doesn't dominate all the lists. Because as much as we love HP, it does get a little redundant. *jumps off soapbox*

message 19: by Maria (new)

Maria | 1 comments I love the last two especially. And the rant about Harry Potter. I have been so careful not to include Harry Potter in videos because I feel you on the "overdoneness". I did put Molly Weasley in my family because I wanted her to co-parent with Atticus Finch...I just had to. Excited about the re-reads as well.

Celeste | PrettyGeekery (celestecastillo) | 8 comments description

I made something a little different because I haven't read any book with a misleading synopsis. Instead I wrote a bunch of fake misleading synopses and you have to guess the book ;D.
