The Magic Honies Bookclub is beginning its 2nd year with a bang! What better way to kick things off than with an adrenaline fueled thriller. This month's theme is 'thrillers - page turners' and our book of the month is Skin Deep, by Liz Nugent.
Our next meetup will take place at Cleary's Bar in Newcastlewest on Thursday, 24th of October at 8:30 pm. Everyone is welcome at Magic Honies Bookclub meetups and it is not necessary to have read the book of the month. Meetups are informal, fun affairs - a great chance to get to know other readers and non-readers. The meetups begin with some games and activities, followed by discussion, debate, quizzes and prizes. Everyone is encouraged to take part and talk about the chosen book, other books or reading in general. The atmosphere is very positive and mutually supportive.
Our book of the month is Skin Deep by Liz Nugent.
