I mentioned on Books and Tea this weekend about upcoming buddy reads so I wanted to share them here. Let me know if you’re interested in any of them.
Summer by Edith Wharton
For our ‘Seasons by the Book’ club, we’ve selected one of the author’s lesser known works, but controversial when examining the life of protagonist, Charity Royall. A perfect summer selection.
The Plan: Start July 1 and discuss at the end of the month
East of Eden by John Steinbeck
After reading 10 of Steinbeck’s books, I’m excited about revisiting my first and favorite. I’m teaming up with boookstabuddy Kaitlin @bookedandready, who I met when I joined her readalong of East of Eden years ago.
The Plan: Start date July 1. East of Eden is divided into 4 parts, with plans for a weekly discussion, each weekend in July.
Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina has been silently taunting me since reading War and Peace almost 2 years ago. I wasn’t eager to read my next Tolstoy but after chatting with my Tolstoy buddy readers from War and Peace, we’re taking on #AnnaInAugust19 to get #TipsyAfterTolstoy.
Many have said Anna Karenina is easier to read than War and Peace. I do hope that proves true.
The Plan: Anna Karenina is divided into 8 parts so we plan to start in August and read through September. Weekly or bi-weekly discussions, TBD.
Please comment below and let me know if you are interested in joining for any of the books mentioned. Or if you’ve read any of these, task me what you think about them.
