Default Book of the Moment

Every two months, a thread will be opened for the Book of the Moment. Everyone will have a month to read the book (or longer if necessary) and the discussion will begin the following month. Members can nominate books for future BotMs and will also have a chance to vote on which books gets chosen. We will be reading books from a variety of genres – hopefully, this means that there will be something for everyone!

Announcements will be posted in this thread to let you know when voting is open and which books have been chosen. If you don't want to miss anything, make sure you subscribe to this thread!

How can I get involved with Book of the Moment?
  • You can nominate up to three books for Book of the Moment.
    • Nominations are always open.
    • If a book you nominated is chosen, you can then nominate another.
    • If your books aren't chosen, they will remain as options for future months.
  • Nominations are listed here. Please read through the existing nominations and past BotMs, so the same book isn't nominated twice.
  • Nominations should be sent via PM to Harron Peasley, Lissy Longbottom and natekka with the title ‘Book of the Month Nomination(s)’. You MUST include the title, author, genre and age rating of the books in order for your nominations to be considered, as well as any sensitive topics you books include.
    • Ratings up to Sa16+ are allowed. Check here for more information on our Rating System and Sensitive Topics.
  • You – yes, you! – will have a say in choosing every BotM! Stay tuned to find out how.
If you have any questions, send a PM to Harron Peasley, Lissy Longbottom or natekka.

Grab your copy now! On November 15th, a discussion thread will be opened but, unlike in previous BotMs, it will remain open until the end of December. This should allow everyone enough time to read the book and join in with the discussion.

As always, there are plenty of other discussions to get involved with. Don't forget that you can submit your own bookish discussion, if you want. Find out more on that here. Additionally, if there's a book that you'd love for us to read and discuss together, why not submit a book or two (or three) to be considered in future BotMs?

In the meantime, why not get involved current BotM discussion about Sabaa Tahir's An Ember in the Ashes?

Our June (2020) Book of the Month is...

Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan



Get your hands on a copy now, ready to start reading when June begins! A thread will be posted on June 1st for you all to start discussing your expectations about the book and will remain open until mid-July.

In the meantime, why not get involved current BotM discussion about John Green's Turtles All the Way Down?

Or perhaps there are books that you would love for us to read and discuss together in this book club. Why not submit a book or two (or three) to be considered for future BotMs? And finally, if you haven't already, sign up for The Book Seekers' Reading Challenge 2020 and give yourself an extra reading challenge this year!

August 2020

Firstly, we are sorry that we haven't updated this thread so far with the selection of books for August;
we have been talking over how we aimed to end the "summer" as a book club.

As a team, we know how crazy 2020 has been so far and how often we set our sights on a book and somehow, blinked and the whole month has passed us by with another, new book laid before you.
There have been multiple reasons this year to explain why we have struggled to have as much accessibility to the books we have been reading, and I'm sure we don't need to explain any of these to you all.
However, due to these and various other 2020 circumstances, we would like to issue a fun challenge to our members for the month of August.

We, the Book Seeker moderators,
challenge you to read one of our
previous Book of the Month books
that you haven't read yet.


If you have any questions, PM natekka, Harron Peasley or Stormdancer.
