Suggestions for our very first read!!!!


PigtailPrincess

Recommended Posts

 

Hello all and welcome to Pigtails Playpen! It is the forums official Book Club!!!! 

Here we will read and discuss books with our fellow readers! We are really excited to open this up to all. 

For now the rules are simple and hopefully everyone adds to the charm of this place rather than taking away. Everyone has different views but we can all respect one another.

For now we are considering our first read and I thought what better way than to ask all of you for suggestions! A couple guidelines though. 

For now it will be a short story. This is for several very good reasons. Mainly it means it will be more inclusive. We will not be reading a book for months so new people or others who just found us will only have to wait a while to join in. This will also hold people's attention because I know some of us can lose focus. 

Besides being a short story just try to consider the title and remember it should appeal to a lot of different people.

So let's hear your suggestions! I also have a list I am collecting so I will pop in and suggest too. After we compile a list I will pick 3 or so with the most interest and we will hold a vote. 

So start suggesting and be looking out for more posts! Also follow the club if you havent already.

Yours Truly, 

Pigtail 

Alright start chiming in with your short story book suggestions! Can't wait to hear them all!

Thank you FATHERMAN for your suggestions. I am still not sure if we are aiming for a kink original or another form of short stories for the first book bit I will definitely add this to the list.

 

My first suggestion is one I havnt read called The Lottery!!! I didn't research too much because I didn't want to spoil it.

Keep the suggestions coming! Don't be shy.

Oh, The Lottery is excellent. Shirley Jackson if I am not mistaken. If you ever want to a nice gothic short story, I would love to recommend Polaris, The Cats of Ulthar, or The Outsider by H.P. Lovecraft. Very good stories. Polaris and The Outsider make me a little melancholy though.

FATHERMAN - Thank you again! Love all the suggestions. A little melancholy is ok. When we all vote on a book I will choose 3-5 titles from suggestions, and try to make them all different. Then I will type up a little blurb on them so people know what they are getting into. Hopefully this will allow everyone to participate. Just another plus of short stories. We can get alot more variety.

Thank you so much Echo! I am excited for this suggestion. May have to read either way.

I'm a Redwall fan. The author is Brian Jacques and one of his short stories I love is The Great Redwall Feast. I remember when my family got a copy with the cassette tape of him reading it. Jacques does all the voices and it's like a story time that puts me in littlespace :)

Oh I didn't know Redwall had short stories. When you said it I was thinking of how long the other books in the series are. Thank you so much for the suggestion. I will look into it for consideration.

Alright all I have loved getting suggestions! We got some good ones. The suggestion pole will close Saturday at midnight so I can gather a few selections for a vote. Soooo ... get all those suggestions in. Even if ypu have already suggested a book, there is no limit. 

After the suggestions close up the vote will happen. After that it's on to reading!!!

I have another suggestion!

Ohhhh The Lottery…. It’s been ages since I’ve read it, yet I still get a chill when I think of it. Permanently imprinted on my brain!!!

Haha, that’s okay! There’s so much to read it’d be impossible for someone to have read everything, even well-known writers! I do highly recommend giving her works a read if you find the time. 😊
