Reading is best when shared. While it might be difficult to physically share a book with your best friend, one of my favorite parts about reading is sharing my thoughts about characters with my friends. I love to debate with my friends about alternate ways a story could have ended and discuss out favorite fictional romances.
So, in the spirit of keeping these lively book debates flowing, I’m proud to introduce the STACKS Book Club! This Book Club will meet in the form of weekly posts right here on Ink Splot 26. We will choose a book to read together and then meet back here to discuss our thoughts of the chapters, our favorite characters, and what we think is in store for our heroes. Then, when we finish a book, we’ll choose another and start all over again!
For our inaugural meeting of the STACKS Book Club,
I’ve chosen Dork Diaries: Tales From a Not-So-Fabulous Life by Rachel Renee Russell as the first book for us to collectively read
together. This novel is written in the style of a diary and follows Nikki Maxwell as she struggles to fit in at her new middle school, Westchester Country Day. Nikki isn’t the most popular girl in school and this problem is only made worse when she makes an enemy out of MacKenzie Hollister, the most popular girl in school. To make matters worse, MacKenzie is Nikki’s biggest competition in the annual school art show.
So, grab your copy of Dork Diaries and start reading! Since this book is broken up into diary entries rather than chapters, our first meeting will discuss all entries up to September 19th! Happy reading!
