Building Worlds and Filling Them With Magic

So, like with almost all of my blog posts this month, this one is CRAZY late. But it’s also good, because it gives me a chance to see if the damn thing works before I cast a net into the aether, and so far, it’s going well.

Earlier this month, in a reckless bid to make it look like I know what the hell I’m doing on the internet (lol, I don’t) I started a book club on Facebook. At first, it was just a handful of my nearest and dearest because Facebook is wonderfully functional and wouldn’t let me invite people, so it was word-of-mouth only.

So far, I’ve chosen a theme, A Book You Were Gifted During the Holidays (whichever winter giftgiving holiday(s) you observe), and we got stuck in.

Since then, I’ve figured out how to invite a limited number of people a day, many of whom have become active in our discussions and gotten going on their own books. So, I’m pleased, and am willing to call it a tentative success.

If you want to join, find the Merry Misfits Book Club on Facebook and join! It’s that easy.

We haven’t chosen a theme for February yet, but as soon as I do, it will be announced there and here.


January: A Book You Were Gifted During the Holidays

February: The Book was Better! A book a movie or tv show was based on.

March: A Good Book to Read While It’s Raining

April: A Book that’s Been on your TBR Pile Too Long

May: A Book from a Niche Genre, or a Genre You Don’t Often Read
