Hello, Buzz Book Club readers! We finished the August book club selection a week ago and took a little break, because my pick this month is an itty bitty book that I'm really excited about! Drum roll please . . . September's book is Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan.
The movie adaptation, starring Michael Cera and Kat Dennings, will be out on Oct. 3, which is right when we will have completed the book. Plus, this has been on my reading list for a long time, so what better excuse to get to it? You can check out the trailer here.
For those of you new to my book club format, here's how it works: I'll announce a new book each month. Every week I'll suggest chapters to complete by the next post (which, in this case, will go up every Friday in September). In these weekly Book Club posts, I'll posit a few discussion-provoking questions for you to respond to in the comments section.
To find out what Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist is all about and to get the first assignment,
The synopsis for Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist reads:
"What happens when two witty, wise, but vulnerable teens meet by accident at a chaotic punk rock club? They fall in love, of course. While both are dealing with the fallout of failed relationships and the infinite hurt that accompanies them, they are questioning everything about themselves, their friends, and their future paths. The passion and intelligence of these characters, along with the authors' intimate knowledge of and complete respect for their audience, make this novel unique. Told in alternating chapters over the course of a single night, the narratives create a fully fleshed-out picture of both teens, informed by their love of music, their devotion to their friends, and their clear-eyed view of the world."
The first assignment: Read from the start of the story until the end of the chapter six. We'll chat about this first section a week from today, Sept. 12.
