April Showers Brings The Rise Of Cthulhu






Can you believe it's March already? Spring is getting ready to jump on us from out of nowhere, and I hope you are enjoying "The Beekeeper's Apprentice". We will start discussing the book March 25th, and the exciting news is the author, Laurie R. King, will be answering GGBC members questions on Twitter!

Be sure to send your questions starting March 24th and use hashtag #GGBC. 

And for April...

We will be reading the works of H.P. Lovecraft. With the April rains comes thoughts of things from deep, dark places. Lovecraft is one of the most influential writers of the horror, suspense genre, and is a fascinating story of his own right. I was thrilled that @CthulhuChick was kind enough to share her website with us and we are going to use her collected works as the jumping off point for our reading. Best news? It is free. Here is the link: Cthulhu Chick ebook. You can read it on your computer, print it, or download to your ereader. She also has a donation button on her page, so you can give a little something if you would like. We will start the madness April 1st, because we are no fools.

Please feel free to pass the word around about Geek Girls Book Club, and don't forget to show your GGBC pride with buttons, stickers, shirts and more from our store. The link is right here on the blog. 

We are getting ever closer to 1,000 members and that is amazing in just a short year. Thank you for all your geeky energy and awesomeness. This club is nothing without excellent folks like you.

  1. Ohhh... it's been too long since I read my Lovecraft. The Call of Cthulhu was a great read, but I found The Shadow Out of Time more mind-numbing. Can guys take part in this, or just geek girls?
