more vampire books?

Michele and I have contemplated adding books to our monthly book club for some time now, but the timing just never really worked for me. Things seem to be as settled as they'll ever be (with 2 kids in elementary school, a husband in the military and a 5 month old puppy) so starting this month I will add a couple of side reads to our book club. What does that mean?

Essentially the format for our main featured selection will stay the same and throughout the month I will do author spotlights, Q&A's, and conclude with discussion questions. A side read will be a book that is so anticipated that I simply couldn't stop myself from bringing a little extra attention to it. I'll probably do 2 books a month to start with. So once the read is posted we can share opinions, favorite parts etc- no formal discussion questions or anything. Just a bunch of readers talking about really good books.

Does this sound like something you might be interested in? What other features would you like to see at Bite Club?

If you have any upcoming vampire books that you want to know more about or want to talk about, email me at

Sounds like a great idea. I find my life gets to crazy and by the time I get to read the book, it's when the discussing is over.

I know all about the crazy life. Reading often takes a backseat to a million other things these days- mainly all things kid related. If you get the chance... I try to post a weekend shout out to talk about what we are reading, or what we plan to read- you could always use that to discuss any comments you might have had about the book club books. Or if you leave comments on the discussion posts after the chat days, I will get the alert via email and can comment back. Just a thought:)
