My Top 5 Online Book Clubs
When you travel frequently and live in a small country town, there isn’t always a local book club that you can become a member of. This has always been an issue for me, but the internet offers some great solutions and alternatives to your traditional book clubs. Here are my top 5 recommendations, and two notable mentions, for online book clubs.
- Between Two Books
I am a huge fan of Florence Welch from Florence + The Machine. This is her book club, and it is fantastic. She hasn’t posted since July 2019, but I am sure that she will be back soon after a wee break. You can find a complete list of read books pinned on the Twitter page. Follow on Facebook.
- Poppy Loves Book Club
I found Poppy Loves Book Club through her blog, Poppy Loves. This is a book club for women across the globe with a dedicated Facebook group that hosts discussions on their book of the month, many times the authors join, which makes this group unique. You can also find them on Instagram @poppylovesbookclub.
Discover, read, and celebrate a new book every month! This book club is curated by Emma Roberts and Karah Preiss #belletristbabe. They also feature independent bookstores, which I love 🖤! Join their community on Facebook and follow them on Instagram @belletrsit.
- Our Shared Shelf
Our shared shelf is a feminist book club started by Emma Watson. With a new book every month covering topics from gender, race, justice, and a friendly dialogue you can join on Goodreads… the real question is why are you not a member? Full disclosure, I am no longer a Goodreads member, but I still follow Our Shared Shelf on Instagram and Twitter and I have loved most of the books read.
- Book Baristas
As someone who loves getting book recommendations, and who loves coffee… it was only natural for me to connect with Natasha, who runs Book Baristas. Follow them on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
- The Social Book Club – Founded by @lizzy.jensen on Instagram, this is a great book club to follow if to only get some great book recommendations. There have been some worth-while books, These Is My Words by Nancy E. Turning (May 2019), I discovered because I follow them on Instagram.
- Pure Wow Book Club – I found the Pure Wow Book Club on Instagram and have enjoyed many of their recommendations.
There are many others out there, and no reason to limit yourself to just one. I don’t always take part in the monthly reading or discussions, but it is nice to have the option for when you have to talk to someone about the book you are reading. It is also a fantastic way to discover new books and connect with like-minded individuals who all share the joy and love for reading.
