  1. Hey Katie!

    I Got your invitation. I would like to participate but i didnt understood very well the idea... so may you help me a little?

    So... every week we have a theme, and i have to read any book i wat according to that theme, or there is a book that i have to read?

    1. Hey, thanks!

      So here's how it goes:

      Every month we have a theme, and we pick a book for each week of that month based on that theme. For December, as you can see in my post, we have a theme of Mystery, and for each week in December there is a book already selected that matches the Mystery theme.

      Mainly, you are supposed to read all of those books, one each week. That's what I do and that's what the group is all about. However, if you don't feel comfortable reading that fast, you can pick a week in advance, say, week 4, and start reading that book now. Then just post your thoughts when we do on December 26th!

      That's just an example.

      Just let me know if you have any more questions :)

    2. Just one more. If i dont have the selected book for that week, i just can jump to the next?

    3. Yes! You can jump to the next and you can read books that we have already done. However, in order to not spoil the group members since we post our thoughts in the forums on the group page, just don't post your thoughts on the book until the date we have set!

      For example, if you wanted to read Allegiant by Veronica Roth, since the date to post your thoughts on that book was November 7th, you can go ahead and read that book and post your thoughts in the group forums.

      If you wanted to read I Hunt Killers, since the date to post your thoughts on that book is December 19th, you can read it now just don't post your thoughts in the group forums until December 19th! Does that make sense? :)

    4. Yes Thank you! I do have a blog, but its on portuguese, so i'll do the review on goodreads, its that ok? :D
