Coral Gables Love Geeky Book Club

Coral Gables Geek Themed Book Club

Why Coral Gables Love Geeky Book Club

As a book worm I yearn to discuss all my recent reads with fellow book lovers. When something amazing, funny or infuriating happens, you just have to talk about it! I like to read different kinds of books, but geeky books are my jam! I can’t get enough of geeky books of all genres: sci-fi (yes!), fantasy (sip!), paranormal romance (hell yeah!). If you like to read geek books and live in the Miami area, you are welcome to join our shenanigans! It’s so much fun and you couldn’t ask for a nicer and more welcoming group of people. Huzzah!

What is CGL Geeky Book Club

We meet once a month at the amazing independent bookstore in Coral Gables, Books & Books. We are a very laid back book club. We discuss the book, what we liked, what we didn’t like, and anything we want to talk about. Then, we simply chat and hangout with fellow geeks while enjoying dinner or a cup of tea at the cafe.

Coral Gables Love Geeky Book Club January Pick: Jackaby by William Ritter

What We’ve Read So Far

We’ve had two book club meetups so far and we read Jackaby by William Ritter and Soulless by Gail Carriger. Everyone loved both books. So if you haven’t read them, we definitely recommend them.

Jackaby is like a paranormal Sherlock Holmes. The main character is a wizard that solves paranormal crimes. His side kicks are an independent, strong headed, young girl; a ghost; and a duck. You will encounter many mythical creatures along the way, and will be swept up in the whimsical world of Jackaby and his ugly hat. This book might not meet the criteria to be categorized as young adult, but it’s definitely teenager friendly.

Coral Gables Love Geeky Book Club December Pick: Soulless by Gail CarrigerSoulless has a little bit of steampunk, vampires, werewolves, other paranormal creatures, and romance. Soulless is part of a series called The Parasol Protectorate and it’s one of my favorite book series of all time. Soulless is an adult book with sexy scenes – so definitely not kid friendly.
