Book Club | February 2020 Roundup

It's time for another book club roundup! Our theme for February was books with trees or leaves on the cover and there were so mnay amazing options. Here are a few of the posts shared, featuring a bunch of titles to add to your TBRs....

My pick for the Blogger’s Bookshelf Book Club in February was I Love You So Mochi by Sarah Kuhn. The prompt was ‘a book with a tree or leaf on the cover’, and the cover for this is absolutely breathtaking, featuring a couple strolling amongst cherry blossom trees at full bloom. And the story itself is equally as great. I used to say ‘YA isn’t really my bag’, but I’ve found myself really enjoying the genre recently and that’s a-okay with me! Kimi Nakamura is on the cusp of going to art school and her Mum is thrilled about it. Kimi, however, is obsessed with creating Kimi Originals, bold, art-like outfits that give her friends strength. After an explosive argument with her Mum, Kimi receives a letter from her estranged grandparents, inviting her to spend spring break in Kyoto with them. The story really begins in Japan and Kuhn’s first-person narratives of Kimi really put the gears in motion. She captures the ambience of Japan incredibly well, as well as the struggles that second- and third-generation immigrant kids go through. In parts it felt as though I were back in Japan myself! 🌸⛩️🇯🇵 #DaisybutterReads #bloggersbookshelf

This month’s prompt for the @bloggersbookshelf Book Club is a book with a tree or leaf on the cover and I chose the wonderful Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson. Truly Devious follows wannabe detective and true crime podcast enthusiast Stevie Bell, who applies to the infamous Ellingham Academy in hopes of solving the cold case of the triple murder that happened there in 1936, but after a tragic accident in her first term at the school, Stevie finds that may not be the only case that needs her investigative skills. I enjoyed this one so much, I’ve already started reading the next book and ordered the third. If you’re a fan of cosy murder mysteries with an added dash of teen drama, I highly recommend Truly Devious. Also, one of Stevie’s friends is a writer and I relate way too hard to the way he talks about writing. Or rather, the way he will do absolutely anything to avoid talking about writing. Or doing any writing. A+ writer representation. - #vsco #vscocam #bloggersbookshelf #bookshelfbookclub #bookreview #afterlight #bookstagram #vscobooks #bookworm #booklove #prettybooks #beautifulbooks #instabooks #bibliophile #igreads #booklover #yabookstagram #yabooklovers #trulydevious #maureenjohnson
