Book Club | May 2019 - From The Penguin Modern Series

For our 2019 BB Book Club we've put together a printable list of twelve different prompts. On the 1st day of each month, we'll be introducing you to the month's prompt and the books team members each plan to read, along with some other suggested reads we think you'll love. Of course, these are just ideas so please feel free to interpret the prompts however you wish!

We're also inviting you to share photos and mini reviews of your book club picks on social media using #bookshelfbookclub and tag @bloggersbookshelf on Instagram.

Our prompt for May is... From The Penguin Modern Series

The Penguin Modern series consists of 50 small books that are priced at just £1 each. You can find a full list of the titles over on their website.

What we'll be reading...

Ria's Pick: The Master's Tools Will Never Dismantle The Master's House by Audre Lorde

"Audre Lorde's writing is prolific and I'm surprised I haven't delved into one of her most famous essays about the intersection between race and feminism. I've seen entire quotes emblazoned on the internet, so it'll be great to read the context around them."

Anjali's Pick: Fame by Andy Warhol

"Broken up into three sections - love, beauty and fame - this little Penguin Modern is a collection of vignettes by pop artist Andy Warhol. I have no idea what to expect but when I saw that Warhol was the author I was taken back to high school art days. Literally my only reason for picking it up, so we'll see how it goes!"

Erin's Pick: The Cracked Looking-Glass by Katherine Anne Porter

"After picking up The Skeleton's Holiday (Leonora Carrington) for our book club last year, I've been looking forward to reading another Penguin Modern as part of our 2019 prompts. The Cracked Looking-Glass (Katherine Anne Porter) became part of my collection last summer along with The Missing Girl (Shirley Jackson) when I had a couple of pounds left to use up a gift card and decided to spend them on more Penguin Moderns. I really enjoyed The Missing Girl - I'd highly recommend it if you're unsure which title to go for this month - and hope I'll love this one just as much."

Other suggested reads...

- The Skeleton's Holiday (Leonora Carrington) - 2018 book club roundup
- The Missing Girl (Shirley Jackson)
