Something Strange & Deadly Book Club
Hey guys! This August, Something Strange & Deadly is the book club pick for Epic Reads! YAY! 😀
Because of this, New Leaf Literary has decided to do something fun and different…Something fun and different that involves ZOMBIE PICTURES. If you want to give it a go, you can be entered to win signed swag and e-books and hardcovers from New Leaf Literary!
Basically, to enter, you just need to take a picture of YOU in zombie garb! Put the picture Tumblr with the hashtag #Strange&Deadly, and then you’re IN! Oh, and you can find details on the contest here. 🙂
I too want to celebrate being the book club pick, so I thought it might be fun to do my own book club to coincide with theirs–but I’ll also include A Darkness Strange & Lovely, for those of you who’ve already read or are reading book 2.
When Will This Happen:
The book club will begin August 5, and run until August 31.
New discussion questions will appear each Monday (8/5, 8/12, 8/18, 8/26) and giveaway winners will be announced the following Mondays.
How This Will Work:
Each Monday in August, I will ask a discussion question on my blog as well as on my Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, and even my under-used YouTube. If you want to participate, you can respond to the question on any of those same social media sites.
Of course, you don’t HAVE to respond to my discussion question–you can really talk about whatever you like that relates to Something Strange & Deadly or A Darkness Strange & Lovely–or even A Dawn Most Wicked.
Also, if you sign up below to participate, I will email you links to the discussion questions each Monday–but don’t worry. I will never bother you with emails again after this or share your email with anyone.
Throughout the week, I will also share quotes from the books, playlists to coincide with specific chapters and scenes in the series, a weekly video of me reading (be warned, though, I am a dreadful reader), and any other fun stuff I come up with.
What You Get For Participating:
If you participate, you will automatically get a free copy of the e-novella A Dawn Most Wicked OR a pdf copy of a cut scene from A Darkness Strange and Lovely.
Starting Monday 8/5, there will be a master form where you can leave a link to one (or all) of your discussion posts so that I can know who participated and how to reach you. 🙂
What You Get For Participating EACH WEEK:
Each week, I’ll do a giveaway, and if you participated in that week’s discussion question, you’ll be entered to win!
I’ll put up a form each Monday, and you can simply copy/paste in the link to your discussion response whenever you write it–and that’s all it will take to be entered in the giveaway! If you answer the question on more than one medium (i.e. Twitter and your blog), you’d get 2 entries. 1 entry for each place you participate in the book club. 🙂
Here are some of the weekly prizes:
- Hardcover of The Beautiful and the Cursed by Page Morgan
- Hardcover of The Darkest Minds by Alex Bracken
- Hardcover of Taken by Erin Bowman
- Signed hardcover of Something Strange & Deadly
- Signed hardcover of A Darkness Strange & Lovely
- Signed paperback of Angelfire by Courtney Moulton
- Signed hardcover of Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
If You Don’t Already Have Something Strange & Deadly:
If you don’t already have a copy of book 1, I have 15 e-books that are up for grabs. Obviously, I would hope that if you request the e-book, you do not already own Something Strange & Deadly and that you will actually participate in the book club…but I realize I can do nothing to “police” that. I’ll just hope you guys are honorable–which I’m pretty positive you are. 🙂
How To Sign Up:
Fill out the form below, and stay tuned for the first discussion question! It will land in your inbox with links to the various social media outlets on Monday, 8/5.

Hello there, trying to sign up or the book club but there is no question 4 or 5 in the form, thanks!

It’s there! You just have to scroll down with the mouse in the form. I’ll try to go make the form dimensions larger so you can see the whole thing without scrolling. 🙂

All signed up! I actually started rereading SSAD the other day so that my memory will be fresh for ADSAL, so I’ll be ready for the discussions Qs. 🙂

Hi!! I signed up!! 😀 Omg, I cannot wait. August can’t come fast enough. AND CONGRATS!! <3

The prospect of August just got a little brighter (: I haven’t been very good at keeping track of all my blog subscriptions lately, but I’m so happy I saw this. I’ve re-read SS&D so many times this year waiting on the sequel, which I *just* finished this week and am now dying for the third book. …Which also means, since the next book isn’t out, I’m obviously going to re-read both books anyway! I’m signed up and ready. (And congrats for SS&D getting picked for the Epic Reads book club!)

Congrats, Susan! So happy to have the excuse to read SS&D again 😀 I love Eleanor and Daniel for life <3

Hey! I love reading, but I haven’t read any of your books as of yet. I’ve heard many good things about them though, so I plan on reading them soon. I also wanted to know if I can enter the giveaways by e-mailing you the answers because I don’t have any social media site accounts. Please reply. Also, I’ll need an e-mail to send you the answers. P.S. I promise I won’t send you anything in your e-mail except for the answers to the question for that week. 🙂
