Reading with Jessica February Announcement

Posted by abakersp in Reading with Jessica / 0 Comments

Hello reading friends! Welcome to Reading with Jessica! I’m excited to begin this journey and do hope that you’ll read right along with me. Or, if you’ve already read the book, that you’ll join in the conversation each week!

Here’s how it will work. Think of it like a buddy read, or a book club, only it’s right here on my blog. I’m going to blog my journey in reading different books, and I’m hoping that you’ll share your thoughts on the same chapters! You can read right along with me week to week, or you can read at your own pace and visit the blog posts as you go through the book. Whatever works best for you.

In the beginning of the month, I’ll share the book and the reading plan for that month. Then each week after that, I’ll post a reminder of what chapters I read, and then include my thoughts on those chapters. Some may be more intensive then others, just depends on the book and the pace of the story.

NOTE – THERE WILL BE SPOILERS!!! Making sure to really put that out there so there are no surprises. And I’ll try to remind you with each post in case you forget. But I’m really looking to have interaction between me, and you – my faithful readers. And maybe even some new friends! So….let’s get started.

Book Announcement

I already announced this yesterday on my Instagram post, but I’ll say it here in case you missed it. This month I’ll be reading and discussing Oathbound by Victoria McCombs. Here’s more about the book:

Beware the waters. The dangerous deep brings ruin to all. Emme has spent her life avoiding anything to do with pirates. But the fates are cruel, and now a hidden sickness leads her to partner with pirates for the one thing that can save her-a cure on an island none are certain exists. The pirate captain's secrets are darker than the deep and threaten to kill them all. His obligations are tinged with betrayal, for his oathbind must be fulfilled.
