Anna’s in Your Imaginary Book Club!

While it’s fun to speculate about all our fantasy book club members, we always want to give you the chance to know a bit more about the folks who make up the Imaginary Book Club community. Each month we’ll be profiling one of our writers or contributors with a fun Q&A post. Feel free to chat them […]

Book Club Brunch – Chapter 15

So glad to be back with y’all this week! Took a micro-break last weekend to recover from some work craziness. Throughout last month, while I was trying to work my way through Zero K, I just had this super difficult time getting into reading. Every book I picked up was hard to get into and […]

Book Review | I Almost Forgot About You, by Terry McMillan

Within two chapters of starting Terry McMillan’s new release I Almost Forgot About You, I sent a text to my mom featuring the cover of the book with the simple words “Officially recommending this book for your book club.” I just couldn’t wait a second longer to recommend this book! And I’m not even the […]

Whitney’s in Your Imaginary Book Club!

Back in March, Whitney put together a fun post on who would be in her Imaginary Book Club. While it’s fun to speculate about all our fantasy book club members, we always want to give you the chance to know a bit more about the folks who make up the Imaginary Book Club community. Each […]

Harry Potter Week!

I couldn’t help myself. That’s just what happens with Harry Potter. You get swept away. There’s a special kind of magic that came with growing up with Harry Potter, but I’ve told you that before, so I’ll just say this – I don’t know of a single series that has had quite the same profound […]

Book Review | Euphoria, by Lily King

When we had Sarah over to guest post a while back, she confessed her obsession with all things nerdy – science love, medical history, all that business. Normally, I wouldn’t say that’s my cup of tea. Sure, I love The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks as much as Sarah did, but I don’t typically go […]

Book Review | A Court of Thorns and Roses, by Sarah J. Maas

Special welcome to Liselle, who is joining us today with a guest post! Liselle is the fantastic blogger behind Lunch-Time Librarian. Pop over there and say hi on behalf of Imaginary Book Club! Going into a book with a lot of hype surrounding it is different from starting other books. I hadn’t even read a summary of A […]

Book Review | Brain on Fire, by Susannah Cahalan

Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness by Susannah Cahalan is the most gripping book I have read all year. I could not put it down, denying all my Netflix shows while I demolished this book. (I’m sorry complete re-watch of New Girl, you know I’ll come back to you!) Brain on Fire is scary […]

Book Review | Persuasion, by Jane Austen

“At nineteen, you know, one does not think very seriously” –Persuasion It was the last book in my Jane Austen seminar, and I absolutely loved the class. Northanger Abbey? I thought it was hilarious. Sense and Sensibility? Marianne was my girl. Pride and Prejudice? What is not to love? Mansfield Park? It was complex, and […]

Book Review | The Color of Magic, by Terry Pratchett

I greatly enjoy humor and fantasy combined in that same way, but I’m a picky person when it comes to both of those genres. Unlike when indulging in my simplistic ice cream desires, I often find that my craving for the perfect fantasy/humor mixture goes unsatisfied. One of the keys to that perfect swirl of […]
