Ali's Book Club: Revamp and February's Book






I'm super excited about this post and the revamp of the book club.  It's been awhile since our last book discussion and I for one can't wait for the next.  The Goodreads group has been set up and Februray's book has been added, but for those that aren't part of the group yet, we will be reading...





Alienated by Melissa Landers


Two years ago, the aliens made contact. Now Cara Sweeney is going to be sharing a bathroom with one of them.

Handpicked to host the first-ever L’eihr exchange student, Cara thinks her future is set. Not only does she get a free ride to her dream college, she’ll have inside information about the mysterious L’eihrs that every journalist would kill for. Cara’s blog following is about to skyrocket.

Still, Cara isn’t sure what to think when she meets Aelyx. Humans and L’eihrs have nearly identical DNA, but cold, infuriatingly brilliant Aelyx couldn’t seem more alien. She’s certain about one thing, though: no human boy is this good-looking.

But when Cara's classmates get swept up by anti-L'eihr paranoia, Midtown High School suddenly isn't safe anymore. Threatening notes appear in Cara's locker, and a police officer has to escort her and Aelyx to class.

Cara finds support in the last person she expected. She realizes that Aelyx isn’t just her only friend; she's fallen hard for him. But Aelyx has been hiding the truth about the purpose of his exchange, and its potentially deadly consequences. Soon Cara will be in for the fight of her life—not just for herself and the boy she loves, but for the future of her planet.



To Join In The Fun 

To join in, mainly you need to be part of the Goodreads group that I linked above.  After that make sure you get you a copy of Alienated, either buy a copy or get one from your local library.  We will start reading on February 1st and during the whole month will be discussing the book and our  thoughts as we go on the group. 

You can also join the Facebook group and share your progress as you read. 

Then on March 12th at 8 PM EST, we will be having a live discussion about the book.  I would love it if you could join us and read this fantastic book with us.   I will let everyone know more about the live discussion when it gets closer to the date.  Not sure if we are going to do a live google discussion or Skype.  Last time we did Skype and it didn't work very well.   

Anyway, I love book clubs and I can't wait to read Alienated with all of you!!
