Book of the Month: February 2014

TheRoadsNotTaken I’ve got a lot of books on my plate right now I’m eager to read, but this one keeps calling to me anyway. So this month’s Book of the Month is Supernatural: The Roads Not Taken by Tim Waggoner.

It’s a choose-your-own-adventure-style television tie-in novel. It’s also one that jumped out at me unexpectedly. I learned about it in the fall and, given how much I love choose your own adventures (I even helped run a BookCrossing convention with that theme), I immediately put it on my “Future To Be Read” list (a list of books I’ve heard about that I want to track down/buy/borrow and read. A day later, I was at work, pulling old Job List (career advice) articles from our old archives and moving them onto our new website. One of the articles from over a decade ago had a URL in the author’s bio. I clicked it to make sure the URL still worked and it redirected to the author’s new website. Right there on the front page of the website was this very book I’d just put on my list of books I wanted to read!

At Christmas, I was thrilled to receive a copy of this book from a great online friend. I am looking forward to reading some new adventures with Sam and Dean. I just hope I don’t get my boys killed.

Book of the Month: January 2014

cuckoos-calling I really wanted this month’s book to be one I got for Christmas. However, it’s one I’ve been needing to read for a while now: The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith (aka J.K. Rowling). While this isn’t exactly a fandom book, I’m still making it the book of the month and would love to hear your thoughts about it, if you read it!

My local Harry Potter meetup group is having a book discussion about this book in a few weeks. And as I’m leading that discussion, I really need to finish this book. I started it a few months ago but didn’t get very far before my download expired from the library. What I read, I liked. My second hold for it just came in at the library, so I look forward to properly reading it and finishing it this time around.

Book of the Month: December 2013

November’s Fandom Book of the Month book was Redshirts… which I am still reading. Sorry. NaNoWriMo stole my free time last month!

TwastheNightbeforeChristmukkah This month’s book is ‘Twas The Night Before Chrismukkah (The O.C. Series Book 7) by Andes Hruby, Josh Schwartz. I just love fandomy holiday celebrations, from Festivus to A Very Supernatural Christmas, and what better way to celebrate the fandom side of the holiday than to dive into this “story you won’t see on tv” (partly because, ah, The O.C. has been off the air for years, LOL). Barnes & Noble has it for $2.95 and Amazon sellers have it for as low as $0.01. My copy is a BookCrossing book, so if anyone wants it when I’m done with it, let me know and I’ll send it to the first person who asks!

I started reading it last night. It starts out with Ryan all angsty and crying. Made my h/c-loving heart happy :-)

For more amazing Christmukkah moments, check out The Most Memorable Chrismukkah Moments From “The O.C.” Ranked From Worst To Best from BuzzFeed. It’s pretty epic. It’s also full of TONS of spoilers, so beware!
