GatheringReaders Raising Readers Spotlight

[GatheringReaders] Virtual Discussion on Marcus Sedgwick’s Midwinterblood

Myra here.


Welcome GatheringReaders! It is that time of the month once again when my book club participants meet virtually for an online discussion about our Book of the Month this September: Midwinterblood by Marcus Sedgwick.


I only have a few questions here for you. Please feel free to just jump in and share your thoughts if you have read, or are currently reading the book, regardless of whether you’re in GatheringReaders or not. Do write your responses in the Comments Section.

  1. Have you finished reading the book? The book is divided into seven parts – which was your favorite story among all the stories?
  2. What did you think about Eric and Merle’s love story? How is it different from other love stories you may have read before?
  3. What did you expect from the story before you read it? Did the book live up to your expectations?

That’s it! Easy-peasy right! Looking forward to reading your responses.

For GatheringReaders participants, see you all on Sunday, 28 September, 11-12 nn at the Jurong West Public Library. I am also giving you an assignment, yes, an assignment.

Assignment for GatheringReaders Participants: Please think of a song that would be a perfect fit for your favourite story in Midwinterblood. Be ready to share this song on Sunday next week (either a youtube clip, a Spotify track, or an MP3). You can also send a Youtube link to my email address: gatheringbooks (at) yahoo (dot) com.

If you’ve read the book and would like to be part of our discussion, please feel free to write your thoughts in the Comments section below.
