We are so excited to welcome new participants to our #YearofYA Twitter book club, and appreciate our “regulars” who are up for any challenge we throw at them 🙂 If you’re new to this group, we are a low-commitment book club of adult YA-readers/educators that posts a theme at the beginning of every month, and YOU get to pick the title(s) that interest you within that theme. Feel free to choose on your own, or we always provide several resources to help. If the monthly theme doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, join us the following month. Don’t have time to read but still want to chat? You’re welcome to pop in to our monthly Twitter chat & pick up titles that other participants read! Our questions and prompts are there to stimulate conversation – there are no “right” answers. Don’t forget to use #YearofYA to connect to all our participants on Twitter/Instagram. If you have a suggestion for a theme, want to post a guest blog, or share other ideas, please let us know! We are happy to be moderators, but love to hear other voices (and I’m sure other people would like to hear you too!). We give you a full month to read as much as you’d like, and we do our Twitter chats at the end of the month/beginning of following.
The November theme is: Crossover Adult/YA. This works 2 ways: pick a book for adults that teens would enjoy reading, or books for teens that adults may be interested in trying out. Below is a fantastic guide by The Book Addict that shows the duality of the theme. It’s a great visual w/ titles you may recognize and will quickly see how the “crossover” works:
Our chat for November Crossover reads will be Monday, November 30 at 8pm! Be sure to follow @Tavia_Clark & @molleebranden before 11/30 & always use #YearofYA to connect w/ other crossover readers over the next month.
