August Virtual Book Club- Open Road Summer by Emery Lord

It’s time to get started on August’s Virtual Book Club title! Are you ready to hear what we’re reading this month? It’s Open Road Summer by Emery Lord! We are so excited to share the awesomeness of this book and the swoon of Matt Finch with all of you! Join us on Facebook and the Goodreads group all month long for fun discussion. On August 29th from 9-10 CST we will be on twitter (@SwoonyBoys) with our besties from Fic Fare talking about the book and giving away fun prizes! Don’t miss out on any of it!

What Is Virtual Book Club?

Virtual Book Club is a group run by us (Swoony Boys Podcast) and Fiction Fare. For the past year we’ve been running monthly read-a-longs that we’ve had a blast promoting. We got lots of feedback from people saying they just couldn’t commit to two nights, or couldn’t keep up with the reading pace. We brainstormed for solutions and Virtual Book Club was born.

Each month we will be selecting a Virtual Book Club book. You will have at least a month to read the book, or re-read if it’s something you’ve read before. Towards the ends of the month we will be one night where we can all get together on twitter and talk all about the book. We’ll share quotes, favorite scenes, and even have some giveaways!

How Will Books Be Selected?

We have a list of books that we’re dying to share with all of you! Sometimes we’ll pick one of our own, but we’ll also be checking in with all of you. You can CLICK HERE to fill out our book recommendation form! (There just might be a prize if your books gets selected!)

How Do You Participate?

  • Join our Facebook & Goodreads groups
  • Read (or re-read) the book
  • Participate in discussion questions throughout the month
  • Show up to each month’s book club meeting on the last Friday of the month
  • Most importantly, HAVE FUN!!

  1. I don’t think I’ll be able to join this month since I’m doing a readathon up till Sept. 1st, but it sounds like a lot of fun! Too bad, too, since I’ve been interested in reading Open Road Summer. I’ll be sure to try and participate next month! đŸ™‚
