What is it?
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 More Than This by Patrick Ness to Amber, because it’s mindfuck-tastic. She still hasn’t read it, but that’s okay, because she’s OCD. Amber rec’d Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson to me, which I read and loved. It was tragically beautiful and made me both very depressed and sort of happy about it. (*inserts Ron Weasley quote here*) This month, Amber is making me read Burn for Burn by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian, because the sequel is fabulous. I am making Amber read Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas, because it ruined my life.
How do you join?
There are two ways to join us: 1) You find a friend you want to recommend books to yourself. You can do this in pairs, threesomes, or more, depending on how much you think you can handle! It’s totally up to you. 2) You sign up and we’ll assign you a partner. It might be more fun this way, but please be aware that we are not responsible if partnerships don’t work out. If you participated last month and would like to get a new partner this month, please tell your current partner yourself. We are not a dating service, and we don’t do the breaking up. But you are welcome to sign up for a new partner once all that is done.\
What are the rules?
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. Once you have a partner (see above), you can decide whether to participate one month only, or just keep it a regular feature. You are welcome to deny recs, as long as you and your partner are okay with it. This is totally up to you. Amber and I like forcing books on each other, so we don’t really deny them, but hey, it’s your party.
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.
