Which books would you like to discuss with the group? Please leave as many suggestions in this thread as you wish to.

This thread will be used to determine some of the choices we read collectively from 2020 onwards (yes, I am quite organised...). I’m sure a lot of members would like to discover new authors to read, so I won’t discount anything.

I think it might be an idea not to put anything too ‘wildly experimental’, as you put it, as a group read. Whilst I do enjoy reading things which are a bit different sometimes, it has put me off in the past.

Perhaps if anyone is interested in reading something really experimental, they could instigate a buddy read with whoever is interested? That way, we won’t be discounting any choices, and will be able to have a discussion about the book or author in question, but it also won’t exclude the majority of people from joining in with the group reads.

Geevee I'd like to try Red Clocks by Leni Zumas, but the fun of this group will be everyone sharing loads of "new2 authors I've neither heard of nor read.

Carrie  (icanhasbooks) | 79 comments I was thinking last night about this group and I had an idea for a future project that I thought might be interesting. If it's came up before I apologize as I hadn't noticed it.

It's the around the world challenge but with women authors, for each month I guess until we have traveled the globe.

That’s a fantastic idea, Carrie! I took part in the Around the World in 80 Books challenge last year, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I’d definitely love to take part. Would you like me to draw up the discussion thread and create a new board for it, where we can all keep track of our lists?

Carrie  (icanhasbooks) | 79 comments I'm glad you like the idea. If you think others would like to participate, please do.

I’m sure they would! I’ll set up the board and the threads tomorrow. I’m really looking forward to the new challenge!

Carrie  (icanhasbooks) | 79 comments Thank you for providing resources and setting it all up.

No problem at all! I’m looking forward to seeing what you’ll pick up for each country.
