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 was postponed until July 20th at 4:30pm PT. Join the N&G Bookclub to get info on how to RSVP 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 July 20h at 4:30pm PT / 7:30pm ET. To participate, join the Now & Gen Bookclub on Goodreads and RSVP for the event. There will be a Zoom link to register. We’ll be chatting all about his supernatural thriller and the inspiration behind the book.

    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.
