Krystal (krystal_f) | 1609 comments Woohoo!! Alright guys, so the long awaited time has finally come! The first ever twilight lovers Monthly Group Reading will begin December 1, 2010!!! Woohoo!!!

The method we decided on was to choose 2 people each month that will "host" the group readings. The hosts will then choose one book each that we as a group will read and discuss here! Your wonderful hosts will also be posting 2 discussions questions each week to kinda keep the convo going about the book!

Im very excited to kick this off with you guys and to venture into this new area for our group! Remember this is OUR group so the discussions will be as lively and as we make it. I chose this method because it seems we only hae a few people interested and so this way everyone gets a chance at reading their type of book! The books that are chosen will be posted ahead of time that way everyone has time to make it to the bookstore, library, thrift store, or a friends house so that they can get the selected books!

So without further ado your hosts for this month will be

1. Yum, Yum the Warrior (previously known as......Eternal na'vi)

2. Myself (Just so I can give you guys a example of how the hosting will go)

The books we will be reading in December are

1. Graceling Graceling (The Seven Kingdoms, #1) by Kristin Cashore

2. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1) by J.K. Rowling

I look forward to reading these books with you all Im sure it will be plenty of fun!

Much Love,
Krys

Krystal (krystal_f) | 1609 comments Great to know you guys are in.....I went back and forth with choosing Harry potter. Lol...I could hear a little voice whispering to me, dont you wanna choose something more "mature' but I've never read the book so Im interested to diving in and finding how I'll like it. Besides the movies make Christmas at Hogwarts seem to wonderful, so technically its a Christmas story ;)


message 7: by Kayla (new)

Kayla You've never read Harry Potter? O.o
Whoa.
Well, you'll be glad you chose it. The first three are a little slow, but they get way better after that.
I was kinda surprised you didn't choose a more advanced book, but hey - never judge a book by its cover. :P

Ashley | 32 comments I haven't every read the harry potter books either, so I am excited to read it with you guys as well! I really don't think you can put an age limit on a book!

Terri (clanmoran) | 286 comments I just say reading YA books, keeps us ALL young at heart, thought and 'spirit' :-) Plus they sometimes still teach me stuff (and I LOVE shocking my family when I know things they don't expect me to know LOL).


message 13: by Krystal (new)

Krystal (krystal_f) | 1609 comments Thanks again to everyone who contributed and helped come up with ideas for how we were going to do this group read! I think a little bit of everyone's ideas are mingled into this, so its great to know you all played a huge part in planning this! Thanks again!

I'm in, although Im reading HP to my son at the moment as a bedtime read so this could take the whole of December.
Just placed a hold on Graceling by Kristin Cashore at the Library.

that's okay Lindsey. we all will be going slow .. coz it's holidays time and i think most of us will be spending it with our families which lessen the time to read.......

Great! Harry Potter is a great book for younger kids. My parents found out at an early age that I liked reading. The first book they read to me was HP, when I was four.
Graceling is wonderful as well. I never would have found it if it was not on the Texas Lone Star Reading List for middle schoolers.


message 18: by Krystal (new)

Krystal (krystal_f) | 1609 comments nice! Its definitly fine if it takes you a while to read it we've got the whole month! Lindsey is your son scared by any of the Harry Potter stuff yet!


message 19: by [deleted user] (last edited Nov 22, 2010 01:25AM) (new)

He's 8 and loves it he's watched all,he tried reading it but the print is small and some of the words were to tricky (even though he loves reading he struggled with this) so I said I would read it to him before bed and he could read it to me if he wanted to have a go. Everything seems slow up when you read out load. He wants me to read them all so I think I might have finished them by the end of 2011 but no promises.
I have never read them so I'm looking forwards to these.
