Our first book for the club is City of Ghost by Victoria Schwab. I picked this book, though it is a young adult novel, because I have been reading a lot of Schwab’s work lately. I’ve become a big fan of the Shades of Magic series and wanted to see how her voice translates into a different series. While I don’t intend for us to read many young adult novels in this club, I did think an easier read would be a good start for anyone feeling a bit on a time crunch. Additionally, I wanted a book to go along with the Halloween holiday (cue ghost noises).
Let me know what you think of the book. I designed this space to be an open forum for anyone wanted to participate in the club digitally or outside of the Portland-area. Please keep conversations civil and respectful (I reserve the right to monitor and delete any comment I find inappropriate, spamy, or hurtful—this is a safe space for book lovers to come together and talk about the things we love).
