Book Club Update: The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

I am pleased as punch to officially announce that the next Migraine Monologues Book Club book will be, as careful readers will have no doubt guessed, The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon.

Yesterday, I was lucky enough to sit down with the Author herself and hear how her migraines inspired central elements of the book. It was so refreshing and exhilarating to meet such a talented figure who has proudly embraced living with migraine and used the condition in such a creative, exciting and successful way. We should all take a leaf out of Samantha's book (and, um, also read the incredible one she's actually written)! I'll be posting the interview shortly.

Samantha has, very kindly, agreed to take part in the next book club chat!!!  This will either be in person in a venue in Central London or, 'out of body', via Google hangout. I'm just ironing out dates/details but will let you know as soon as I can. So, in the meantime get reading or listening (the book is available via Audible).

Below is more information/links about this New York Times hit list, dazzling book that whisks you away to Scion London 2059.

Keep your eyes peeled for updates and the interview with Samantha.

  1. What I love about this book is that there is not a word in this book that's uncalled for. I don't believe in ghosts, that's reality. But this book can take you far away from that, as far away as your silver cord allows it to (Don't worry you'll understand once you've read it). The chapters are quite small and very visual, and at the end of each, you'll be drawn into the next, meaning you can't put it down once you've started. The language feels natural and hence easily understood. About the protagonist, I can only say that, you'll learn from her the true meaning of courage and grit. At the beginning, you may find it hard to keep track of the terms, but don't worry, they are used repeatedly, and so, by the end of the book, you'll be an expert on all types of clairvoyants and related terms. Good luck and welcome to the world of spirits:)
