I’ve always done book reviews, but never really for a group or anything. Well last year, I set an intention on joining a book club. You see I have always and I mean always loved reading. My amazon kindle has hoards of books that I need to read. My average book reads a year is 15-25. So you can say ,it was natural I wanted to find a place to discuss my book readings.
I secretly would follow the Oprah Book club. That led me to the B&N book club, which led me to Hello Sunshine Reads. These are all phenomenal read groups btw, and I still mostly follow a few of them. But I wanted a more melanated feel for my books, and I found Mocha Girls Read. AH! A place that not only read a vast genre of books like myself, but also readers looked like me! SUCESS! You guys know that wasn’t enough, I wanted a book club I could go to in Houston, and the ones that are out there were there, I just did not know how to find them. So alas! Mocha Girls Read created an online chapter! I am so happy I joined, not only have I found a home, I have found a place to do my reviews! I now have an Instagram page dedicated to my reads called @shoedooo.reads ! Feel free to follow me, I will use it to post reviews what I am reading and follow various readers/authors/lovers of books (not just the melanated ones). I also post my reviews on Goodreads as well. So stay tuned to me posting my reviews here!
Bookclubs I secretly and not so secretly follow:
- Reese’s Book Club
- B&N Book Club
- Mocha Girls Read – Online Chapter
- RH Reading Between the Vines
- SWLTRT Bookclub
