The first book assigned for this book club is "Marked" (House of Night, Book 1) by P. C. Cast and Kristin Cast...Sam and I chose this book because of everyone's recent love of vampire romance novels and the fact that we wanted an easy read for our first book club assignment...Please have this book read by June 13th...The first Hostess Brunch will be held on Saturday June 13th at 10:30am (location to be determined later). Some of you may not be able to participate in the brunches, but we would still love to hear your thoughts and gossip on this blog!! Please post your comments and questions here!!
Enter the Dark, Magical World of the House of Night, a world very much like our own, except here vampyres have always existed. Sixteen-year-old Zoey Redbird has just been Marked as a fledgling vampyre and joins the House of Night, a school where she will train to become an adult vampyre. That is, if she makes it through the Change-and not all of those who are Marked do. It sucks to begin a new life, especially away from her friends, and on top of that, Zoey is no average fledgling. She has been chosen as special by the vampyre Goddess Nyx. Zoey discovers she has amazing powers, but along with her powers come bloodlust and an unfortunate ability to Imprint her human ex-boyfriend. To add to her stress, she is not the only fledgling at the House of Night with special powers: When she discovers that the leader of the Dark Daughters, the school’s most elite group, is misusing her Goddess-given gifts, Zoey must look deep within herself for the courage to embrace her destiny-with a little help from her new vampyre friends.
