N&G Book Club: The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires

*Update: Out of respect for the protests, our book club zoom event has been postponed until further notice. I will send an update when it has been rescheduled. xo – Gen

 

Hey Friends! I just wanted to follow up with everyone about the N&G Book club that we officially launched this month! Our first read: The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix. I couldn’t put this book down, day or night. It was such a fun rollercoaster ride and I appreciated the way Hendrix used his storytelling to address themes of racism, socioeconomic disparity, sexism and elitism. Albeit, with a vampire. 🙂 It’s a deep, dark and often quirky story that leaves you with the ending you deserve (even though you won’t want it to end!).

I loved everything about this book and cannot WAIT to hear your thoughts and opinions!

I’m also thrilled to share that the author, Grady Hendrix, will be sitting down with us for the first N&G book club Zoom event on June 4th at 9pm EDT. To join us, sign up for the mailing list (below) and I’ll send you an invite. We’ll be chatting all about his supernatural thriller and the inspiration behind the book. This gives you less than a week to finish, so grab a copy now!

And don’t forget to friend me on Goodreads. I’ve made a Now & Gen Book Club group where you can meet other N&G book club members, find a special space to share your thoughts on what you’ve read so far, and vote on future books for us to read together.

Happy reading!

    Gen,
    Thank you so much for including this book in Book Club. I started to read it and literally could not put it down until I was too sleepy to continue, and the I picked it back up first thing the next morning! I read the whole book in a day and a half. How long did it take you to read? I know you have more interruptions with your family. Did you convince your hubby to read it too?

    I loved the characters and the whole sotry, cleverly woven together by Grady Hendrix. There were a few surprises, the first ws the biggest! There were times I found myself holding my breath and others were I was mentally shouting at the characters. I found myself sometimes identifying with Patricia, in her struggle to be taken seriously and her capitulation. The climax at the end built suspense and horror in just the right amounts.

    I hope I can make it to the Zoom, which is around 11am Friday, my time here in Australia. Looking forward to the discussion.

    Hugs,
    Kim
