Welcome to the Reblog Book Club, the first official Tumblr book club!
For our first book, we’re reading Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, a coming-of-age story about fanfiction, family, and first love. If you’ve read Eleanor and Park, or you follow Rainbow on Tumblr, you have a good idea of why we’re so excited to talk about this book!
We’ve already selected some very passionate Tumblr bloggers to help lead the discussion, and we hope you’ll participate too. You can get a copy of Fangirl at Amazon
, your local independent bookstore, or a public library. Follow this blog
to follow the conversation.
Then contribute in one of two ways:
- Post to your own Tumblr blog and tag the post #reblogbookclub — we’ll reblog it into the main conversation.
- Submit to the book club Tumblr at http://reblogbookclub.tumblr.com/submit
We’ll begin with non-spoilery posts from 9/10-9/16, and discuss plot developments on the following schedule:
Week of 9/17: Chapters 1-12
Week of 9/24: Chapters 13-24
Week of 10/1: Chapters 25-38
And because this is a book club the Tumblr way, you can express your feelings about the book however you choose — a written review, fan art, gifs, poems, letters… Maybe you have Fangirl nail art? Maybe you want to post a video blog talking through your ideas, a g-chat with a friend, or a song you think the characters would relate to? It’s all up to you! And, of course, you can reblog other people’s posts to add your own thoughts and responses. Rainbow will even be answering your Ask Box questions throughout the project!
Thanks for being part of this crazy literary experiment! We think it’ll be tons of fun and we can’t wait to hear what you think about Fangirl!
