In World Book Week we are delighted to launch a new online bookclub here at LinenMe. Now, much as we’d love to, obviously we can’t actually sit together in a cosy kitchen drinking coffee and talking about books. But we would like to make this new blog series a regular gathering where we share our thoughts about a book, and hear yours too. To thank those who leave comments on here we will enter all names into a prize draw to win a copy of the next month’s book (see below for the first title). Our previous book giveaways have been very popular so we know there are lots of book fans amongst you. And perhaps some of you will discover reads you might not have picked up otherwise.
How the Bookclub will work
The Book Club posts will have an in-depth review of the book, which will be selected from different genres to make sure we cater for everyone. So expect the latest heart-wrenching memoir, sumptuous cookbooks, thrilling crime, uplifting novels and a splash of poetry. We will let you know at the end of each post what the next month’s book is going to be, so you’ve got time to read it beforehand. If you have any suggestions for books you’d like us to include then do let us know.
Next month we will be featuring Educated by Tara Westover. This incredible memoir tells the story of Tara’s upbringing in a survivalist Mormon family who didn’t believe in school or Western medicine, and how she ended up studying for a PhD at Cambridge University. It’s a wonderfully written book that explores issues of family, trust, domestic abuse, education, home and love. It will hook you from the start.
In the meantime, tell us what you’ve been reading, and what you’d like us to feature in the coming months on the Book Club, for a chance to win your very own copy of Educated.
