Shitty Book Club

What is Shitty Book Club?

"Shitty Book Club" is a forum in which friends from around the world celebrate "terrible" literature. This can be anything from poorly written, whimsical absurdity, horrible racism, cringy displays of sex or horrible contrived plot.

Most of the time a book is "all of the above"

When is the next Shitty Book Club?

We don't have a fixed schedule. We rotate who chooses the next book each session and that person is responsible for scheduling a call. We usually have a video call for about and hour to review each book. The video call is organised on Google Hangouts.

Next book club meeting...

The Eye of Argon
The Crystal Star: Star Wars Legends
Vonda McIntyre

Princess Leia's children have been kidnapped. Along with Chewbacca and Artoo-Detoo, she follows the kidnappers' trail to a disabled refugee ship, from which children are also missing. Here she learns of a powerful Imperial officer with a twisted plan to restore the Empire. Meanwhile, Han Solo and Luke Skywalker are cut off from Leia by the death of a nearby star, which has caused a disruption in the Force. They have gone to the planet Crseih to investigate a report of a lost group of Jedi. Instead they find a charismatic alien named Waru whose miraculous healing powers have attracted a fanatic following. As Leia follows the path of her children across space, Luke and Han draw closer to the truth behind Waru's sinister cult. Together they will face an explosive showdown that will decide the survival of the New Republic . . . and the universe itself!
