Forever Endeavor Book Club - Get Your Read On!

Welcome to the first official Forever Endeavor Online Book Club . . . Meeting? 


*waves*  Hi, All!  Please stop laughing at my elementary school attempt at making a banner. (What can I say? Tech stuff isn't my strong suit.)

My goal with this club is to find books that I feel might appeal to the majority of us, since we have quite varied reading interests -- at least, according to my highly scientific poll. That being said, I was unable to find an adult novel written for teens, that was a literary fantasy historical romantic mystery thriller of women's fiction.

Since the overwhelming results of the voting showed a strong preference for both Young Adult books, and stories that fall under the Fantasy category, it shouldn't come as much surprise that our February selection is a YA Paranormal.  And hopefully not something everyone has already read.

So without further ado, I give you  . . . 




Kaylee Cavanaugh doesn't see dead people, but she senses when someone near her is about to die. And when that happens, a force beyond her control compels her to scream bloody murder. Literally.

Kaylee just wants to enjoy having caught the attention of the hottest guy at school. But a normal date is hard to come by when Nash seems to know more about her need to scream than she does. And when classmates start dropping dead, only Kaylee knows who'll be next.


There are a LOT of really good YA paranormals to choose from. The reason I chose this story is because it steps away from the more prevalent vampire/ werewolf / faery mythology and takes us into one of my personal favorite folklores. The Banshee. (or Bean Sidhe, for the Gaelic amongst us)

Confession: I love most thing Irish, so that helped mold my choice a wee bit too.

It's also the first book in a series. So for those who enjoy going on an extended journey with their fictional friends, there appears to be much more where this came from.

To help everyone out, if you need to order and don't have a local bookstore (indie or chain) nearby. . .  here are some links.

For the e-reader crew 





For the paperback crew





**** How long do we have to read?? The discussion post for My Soul To Take will be posted on Friday, February 25th and will be open throughout that weekend ****

Hopefully, this is a selection that others are looking forward to reading as much as I am!

If it's not your cup of tea, that's cool. There'll be a different selection next month, no worries.

If you've already read it . . . Congrats! You get a freebie month to read whatever you want, but please come back to join in the discussion.

To everyone else:  Let's Get Our Read On!!

I'm in!!!!! :D

I love your banner. It's 3D!!!! (Though I'm guessing that's because I'm still half a sleep).

Melissa said...

COuld you let me know how long we have before we're supposed to start reading this book? Like when we are going to discuss it cause depending on that I'll either join or not this month.

Thank you Tracy!

Jen Daiker said...

This is a really cool idea! I'm with Melissa, I'd love a few more details to see when I could snag the book and when to have it read by!

That being said I do like the banner a lot. I think it's cool!!! However if you ever want another banner for anything let me know! I love making them! Most everything on my blog is something I've made!

Summer Frey said...

Was there some sort of novella prequel to that? Because I got it for free on my Kindle, read it and liked it...

Chris Phillips said...

My cup of tea is beer. I'm going to try to read something classic this month so I don't think I'll join in this month, but hopefully I will get in on one soon!

Elena Solodow said...

I'm going to bow out for this month, but I think this is a great idea and I'm hoping to join in the future.

What do you mean elementary school attempt? The banner is very well done!

This book looks really good, and I'd love to read it. :)

I so want to read this. Not sure if I can officially participate, right now though. I will order the book and try. I'm up to my eyeballs in line-edits for others and reading three books for official reviews asked by either a publisher or an author. Either way, can't wait to hear what everyone has to say about the book!

Kindros said...

*raises glass in a toast* To the Irish! :)

Wait, that wasn't what this post was about.... :(

I'll be picking this up shortly. Looking forward to discussion. (I have no idea how a book club works fyi, but I'll do my best.)

Patti said...

I love folklores, so this book fits right in with that. I'll try to find it.

Meredith said...

I loved this one! Can't wait for the discussion!

Colene Murphy said...

Oh! Oh!! I have that one waiting to be read!! Awesome!! Will be ready!

Christopher said...

Not much for YA but it looks like your club is off to a good start. Look forward to seeing more.

Susanne Drazic said...

Cute banner. Good luck with the book club. Will keep an eye out for what the future reads will be.

Carol Riggs said...

This is a great idea, this club! I'm too busy to join in or try to find the books, but I still think it's a super idea. ;o)

Pk Hrezo said...

Oh kick-arse! I'm downloading it to Kindle now. THanks for the links!! Again, this is such a great idea and will keep me on my toes for genre reading. :)
