book club thursday 2017

Welcome Readers

Thanks for stopping by our all about Book Club Thursday (BCT) Page. You can also find links at the bottom of this post that will lead you to each of our "about me" blog pages.

Below is schedule and description of events for 2017. We would love it if you read along with us. All blogs posts (barring emergencies) will be LIVE on our blogs by each Thursday at 10 AM (Central Standard Time).

We are also always happy to hear from our readers so don’t forget to comment as you follow along on our blogs each Thursday.

Additionally each of us is pretty active on our blogs with other tours, reviews and giveaways so don’t forget to peek at our blogs on a daily basis or follow us on Facebook!

Each of us can blog about a specific book theme/topic from the past…for example: Remember When Fabio was on all the romance covers (okay so he wasn’t on all of them…)

Dates: Jan 5, Feb 2, Mar 2, Apr 6, May 4, Jun 1, Jul 6, Aug 3, Sept 7, Oct 5, Nov 2, Dec 7

Each of us must read/review ANY book we want published over six months ago.

Dates: Jan 12, Feb 9, Mar 9, Apr 13, May 11, Jun 8, Jul 13,
Aug 10, Sept 14, Oct 12, Nov 9, Dec 14

Each of us can blog about whatever strikes our fancy as long as it is book related.

Dates: Jan 19, Mar 16, May 18, Jul 20, Sept 21, Nov 16

Each of us posts a book cover (no title or author) with the book’s description. We are hoping that some savvy readers will be able to guess what we have posted. Don’t worry though; we will disclose the exact book we are featuring. 

Dates: Feb 16, Apr 20, Jun 15, Aug 17, Oct 19, Dec 21

Each of us must choose to read and review a book from one of the lists below.

Dates: Jan 26, Feb 23, Mar 23, Apr 27, May 25, Jun 22, Jul 27, Aug 24, Sept 28, Oct 26, Nov 23, Dec 28

This year we went a large list to make our choices from.

However…the list is divided up into “Tricky” and “Easy”.

SIX (or more) of the books must come from the “Tricky” list. And at least ONE of the books must come from our “Super Tricky” list.

Additionally I've finally decided to use a rating system for my Reviews; a five heart system :

1 heart:   Disappointing 
2 hearts:  Lukewarm 
3 hearts:  Liked it
4 hearts:  Adored it 
5 hearts:  Bliss

Lastly, from time to time we may host a GIVEAWAY- another reason to follow us each Thursday or on our Facebook pages.
