I can’t believe it’s time for October sign-ups! While we are only a week into our first month now, it has been so much fun! I am loving all the different point of views. While I had planned to have a drawing every month to pick our book, I am choosing again this month. Mostly because the author has sent me signed copies to give away and I’m still sponsoring the giveaways. When we start November sign ups, it will have a drawing video. The drawing will be compiled of the book picks from all the active October book club participants. If you have a book you want to include that fits the requirements, feel free to join now to add it to the drawing!
A week before we start October’s read along, I will send out an email containing all the info you will need for the month. Feel free to email me with any questions. If you don’t receive this email, please let me know and I’ll look into it. I’ll also post the names of each person that signed up in my group’s pinned post – this is a good way to check if you signed up correctly. My name is Alisha at Thebohemianhousewife@gmail.com
What We Will Be Reading:
THIS BOOK WILL BE FREE SEPTEMBER 18TH-22ND!
The book is Resist the Machine by C.D. Verhoff. It is a bit shorter than September’s book. At 269 pages we will only have about 70-/+ pages a week. This is our current set up for pages. It may change as I set the questions. For now, I think it works well.
Week 1: Pages 1-70 (Chapters 1-7)
Week 2: Pages 71-139 (Chapters 8-18)
Week 3: Pages 140-199 (Chapters 19-23)
Week 4: Pages 200-269 (Chapters 24-30)
When the government owns the gene pool, what could possibly go wrong? According to the leaders of Avantica, absolutely nothing. If in doubt, just look at the statistics. Their genetically engineered citizens enjoy the highest standard of living in the world. Crime and disease are nearly non-existent. Healthcare and housing are totally free. Why would anyone ever want to leave?
Meet 16-year-old Clara Spinner. By design, she is supposed to be compassionate, serious to a fault, and content with her work, but someone at the population factory messed up. How else can she explain her rebellious streak, ability to appreciate a good joke and the fact that she detests her first job assignment? Hiding her true nature is a daily battle and coworkers are getting suspicious. So when the military shows up, looking for someone with her skill set, Clara ‘volunteers’. Fitting in with ruthless soldiers isn’t easy, but that’s the least of her worries after they land in a place opposed to everything Avantica stands for. Hearts and loyalties will be tested. Dystopian sci-fi with a touch of romance.
