The “Inner Senshi Book Club” is an online book club where five book lovers of different backgrounds and tastes across the world take turns at selecting and hosting a book each month. Individually, we are (in alphabetical order): Aimee, Angel, Meghan, Samantha L, and Samantha R. Together, we present you a whole range of books, complete with our responses to a rotating list of set questions.
A new book is selected on the 15th of each month, and our thoughts are posted roughly four to five weeks later. We hope you can join us in our reading shenanigans! (The book club derives its name from the five soldiers of love and justice from the Japanese manga and anime series, Sailormoon. We are just as kickass, and if all goes to plan, twice as well-read.)
This month, our book choice is: Flowers From the Storm – Laura Kinsale (as chosen by me!)
Samantha L wants you to consider:
Which person–real or fictional–do you think will consider this book one of their favourites? Why do you think this is?
Samantha R is interested in knowing:
Did you have a favourite character in the book? If so, what was it about this character that drew you to them? Or in reverse, were there any characters that you particularly disliked, and why?
Meghan is wondering:
If you could rewrite any part of the book, what would you change?
I would like you to ponder:
Was it easy or difficult to identify with the narrator and why?
Aimee’ s question for you is:
How believable were the character relationships in the book?
This month’s host, Angel, has two bonus questions to choose from:
For those who might have missed our introduction post last month, our book club will begin reading Flowers from the Storm today until September 15. Our answers to last month’s questions, as well as our review of Cat’s Eye by Margaret Atwood will be up this week, so stay tuned to our blogs for the discussion posts!
