Hello everyone, okay so I’ve been a little MIA again. I’m really bad at keeping up with this regular posting malarkey! Anyway, update on reading – I am now part of on an online Instagram book club ‘Mad Hatters Book Club’. We are on our second month of reading together. We have a discussion post each week with questions relating to the book and themes from the book.
This month we are reading Beauty Sleep by Kathryn Evans. We are expanding our discussion into my blog. Also if anybody is interested in joining let me know and drop myself a message on Instagram here: @wishfulbooks.
Welcome to the third discussion on Beauty Sleep, our current #madhattersbookclub read. The story is becoming very interesting and slightly creepy…
‘Should I know her? That’s the weird thing about forgetting everything – it’s strangely calm, like sitting in the eye of a storm, in the empty spot where nothing hurts you. Until the storm touches you.’
❄️ 1. When Laura first wakes she feels like as if she knows miss lily. Why do you think this is?
❄️ 2. I was shocked when they were injected with a virus to ensure they adhered to the exeat rules (and the effect of what happened when they didn’t). But do you think there’s a place for such technology e.g. Prison etc?
❄️ 3. What are your thoughts on boarding school? Is it something you would have considered for yourself or your family? (Hogwarts!)
❄️4. Why have they taken Shem? Are they really experimenting on children?
Feel free to join in with the comments below if you’ve read it and there’s a question to join in if not read it!
