Welcome to the Reblog Book Club, Tumblr’s official book club! We’re currently reading Saint Mazie by Jami Attenberg. You can get a copy at your local bookstore or library, or order one from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indiebound, or iBooks. wordbookstores even have signed copies!
You can participate in one of two ways:
- Post to your own Tumblr blog and tag the post #reblogbookclub—we’ll reblog it into the main conversation.
- Submit your posts to the book club Tumblr at reblogbookclub.tumblr.com/submit
We’ll begin with non-spoilery posts on June 2nd, which is publication day, and discuss plot developments on the following schedule:
- June 8th–14th: Part One
- June 15th–21st: Part Two
- June 22nd–26th: Part Three
In an article for The Millions, Elizabeth Minkel described Reblog Book Club picks like this: “In the book store they’d be classified as middle grade, YA, and adult, verse and prose; in reality, they’re more like a collection of books about complex female protagonists getting things done.” We can’t think of a more perfect heroine to continue the tradition than bawdy, big-hearted Mazie Phillips, and we’re so excited to introduce her to all of you.
And because this is a book club the Tumblr way, you can express your feelings about the book however you choose—a written review, fan art, gifs, poems, letters… Maybe you have nail art? Maybe you want to post a video blog talking through your ideas, a Gchat with a friend, or a song you think the characters would relate to? It’s all up to you! And, of course, you can reblog other people’s posts to add your own thoughts and responses. Plus, Jami will be answering your Ask Box questions throughout the project. Ready…? Go!

Holy fucking hell.
