Hello everyone !

I hope you've all had an amazing summer and that you're all doing really well. :)

I'm beyond excited to be back and to give you the good news: in case you missed it, Alberto posted a little something on the Rosende Reads IG Story yesterday, saying that Rosende Reads will be back this month! ⬇️

description


We still have no news regarding the time or the day for the first IG live of September, but as usual, I'll try to update you as soon as possible.

During ItaCon2, Alberto said that the first live will be about the notes of Lord of the Flies , which was the last book that we read before the summer break.

And if nothing has changed, the first book we will read will be The Handmaid's Tale , by Margaret Atwood.

Also, if you're new here: WELCOME ! Here is a little post about the links that might be useful ➞ 🔗

Happy reading :)

AND I AM BACK.

Quick first live, but we talked about this summer, the upcoming reads for the book club and it was great. It's really exciting to be back and plan our next reads !

For next week, Sunday, September 9th, we need to read The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood, up to PART VII - Night . Alberto will post the time of the live later.

He also told us the next three books we will be reading:
- Life of Pi, by Yann Martel
- Things Fall Apart, by Chinua Achebe
- The Count of Monte Cristo, by Alexandre Dumas

Alberto said that we will try to challenge us more, and hopefully read a total of 10 books, like we did last year. But who knows, maybe we will read more ;)

You can also suggest some books, or just tell what you're looking forward to for this new "year" of Rosende Reads with the hashtag #RosendeReadsReturns on Twitter.

Happy reading :)
