Are you a book enthusiast? Are you passionate about sharing what you have read with friends? If you answered yes, you might want to consider starting a book club. If you are clueless on how to start a book club you must read Mayra Calvani’s new book, How to Turn Your Book Club into a Spectactular Event.

This book is designed for girls aged nine and up. The book details the how, where, and when you can start a book club. The book is well thought through in order to make it easy for a young person to understand and put the suggestions to practical use.

The book has two sections. Part one explains the steps in starting a book club; part two is dedicated to the different book categories and genres. The author also gives many examples of categories and genres.

This is an ideal book for girls who love to read. They can take their reading to the next level by forming a club designed to discuss what they have read. I can see how forming a club will help enhance learning because one must pay attention to minute details in order to talk about what you have read to others.

Though the book is designed for teens, in my opinion young and old can benefit from reading it. After finishing it, I’m inspired to start a book club of my own. I’m even thinking about starting a book club with my middle and high school students.

The cover art by Kurt Ozinga is very appealing and pleasing to the eyes. Looking at the cover captivated me and made me want to read the book.

I am grateful to the author for providing me with a free copy of her book for review.
