Epic Recs started out as a feature in which Amber and I force each other to read books. Like an impromptu book club, consisting of just the two of us. Or a game of truth or dare without the truth. It’s awesome. Our friendship depends on these books, so there’s no pressure whatsoever. We both like to force people to read books, so it was an excellent excuse to test our book pushing. Right now, it’s a feature that everyone can join. So do you like book pushing or do you just want a fun book club-ish feature to participate in? Join us!
What are we reading this month? Last month I recommended Eleanor & Park to Amber, which she loved, and Amber recommended To Kill a Mockingbird to me, which I’m still reading because I got caught up in exams and then Hart of Dixie. This month, I am making Amber read More Than This by Patrick Ness, which is just an epic mindfuck and I can’t wait to see what she thinks of it. Amber is making me read Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson, because it ruined her life and she likes to ruin mine as well. This should be fun.
How do YOU join in? Well, the first you need to do is team up: find a friend you want to recommend books to. You can do this in pairs, threesomes, or more, depending on how much you think you can handle! It’s totally up to you. If you would love to participate, but have no idea who to participate with, you can also just sign up. We can then assign a partner to you. It might be more fun this way!
Each month, we will publish a post where participants can link up their Epic Recs posts, declaring what they’re planning on reading for the upcoming month, who Epic Rec’d it, and what they recommended in return. We’re also planning some other fun things and giveaways, though you will have to wait for that a little while longer. For now, we just hope you enjoy the book pushing party.
