Yes! I’m excited to announce that I am launching an online book club! I always say I want to read more and when I mention it to other people they say the same thing. So, I thought why not create a book club to motivate myself to read more and, in turn, motivate others too. One book a month. That’s 12 books a year. Doesn’t seem like much but it’s 12 more books than I otherwise wouldn’t have read.
So, if you’re like myself, why not join in? The first Sunday of every month, I will write a review of the book we have read and announce the new book for the following month. I’m hoping this will give people the opportunity to discuss the book in the comments and bond with people during a time where people seem to be at a great distance. Giving people the chance to discuss a book. Not the news, not the pandemic, not doom and gloom but something that allows you to escape that and communicate together.
With that in mind, I am excited to announce our first book is…
The Proposal by Jasmine Guillory.
About the Book
When freelance writer Nikole Paterson goes to a Dodgers game in LA with her actor boyfriend, the last thing she expects is a scoreboard proposal. Saying no isn't difficult - they've only been dating for five months, and he can't even spell her name correctly. The hard part is having to face a stadium full of disappointed fans... At the game with his sister, Carlos Ibarra comes to Nik's rescue and rushes her away from a camera crew. He's even there for her when the video goes viral and Nik's social media goes crazy. Believing that neither of them are looking for anything serious, Nik embarks on an epic rebound with the handsome doctor, filled with food, fun, and fantastic sex. But when their glorified hookups start breaking the rules, will they be brave enough to admit what they're really feeling?

About the Author
Jasmine Guillory is an American romance novelist. Her works' protagonists are often African-American professionals. In February 2019, her book, The Proposal, was ranked on The New York Times Best Seller list for paperback trade fiction.
Why did I choose this book to start with? Because I want to read it! It’s one of those books that I bought a while ago that I constantly look at and think “I must get round to reading that”. Next thing I know, weeks, months, years have passed and it still sits on the ‘to-read’ list. If you have a book like that, leave it in the comments below. You never know, it might be the next book in the Ramblings Book Club?
So, to summarise:
WHO? Anyone can join the book club.
WHEN? First Sunday of every month (I’m giving you a head start this month).
WHERE? Here on the blog!
WHAT? BOOKS! Just pick up the book in any form you like, be it hardback, paperback or digital download and get reading. You have a month to read it until I publish my review and announce the next book.
WHY? If you want to read more, connect with others or are just looking for book recommendations.
HOW? Follow the blog so you’ll be emailed when the next book club post is published before anyone else.
I hope you take the time to read along and participate in the comments! What are some of the books you wish to see in the coming months? Leave your suggestions in the comments 🙂 xx
