Books, WIPs, + Sips

A virtual book club hosted by Hooks, Books, & Wanderlust

Welcome! Come on in and grab a seat. I hope you brought your current WIP and favorite drink!

I’m so excited that you’re here and you want to find out more about this little virtual book club of ours! The Books, WIPs, + Sips Book Club (BWSBC for short) is a virtual book club that I started in March of 2020 as a fun way of getting to know members of our yarn community while chatting about books and working on WIPs! It’s the happy marriage of a book club with sip and stitch!

Once a quarter, a different member from the fiber community will join me as a guest host. You’ll have the opportunity to get to know them a bit before we dive into the book discussion, all while enjoying a bevy and working on one of your WIPs.

How It Works

Each new book pick and meeting date is announced in the first half of each book club discussion. Besides above, here’s where you can find the current book pick info:

  • My email newsletter – Sign up and select “Books, WIPs, + Sips” as one of your interests, you’ll get early guest announcement notice, reminders and replay links, ICYMI
  • On Instagram
    • In my profile, below my picture, next to “BWSBC”
    • In my Instagram Videos Books, WIPs, + Sips Series, in the caption of the most recent video
  • On YouTube, in my Books, WIPs, + Sips Playlist, View Full Playlist, in the description of the most recent video

Each quarter, I will post my spoiler-free review of the book here on my blog along with the details of the next discussion in plenty of time to read the book still if you haven’t already. Guest hosts will be announced publicly when my review goes live. In the past, we’ve had Marly Bird and Chantal of Knitatude, and regulars like Kalley of Kneedles & Life, Leyla of Leylalicious, and Amber of Yarnvibes! Want to find out who’s hosting with me sooner? Sign up for my email newsletter and you’ll be the first to know!

While we fully intend to discuss titles under the premise that everyone has read them, if you haven’t read the book being discussed, you can still join us at the beginning for a spoiler-free discussion. I’ll always give you an advanced warning before we get into the spoiler part of the discussion. I certainly don’t want to ruin anything for you!

Replays are posted on my Instagram and YouTube channel, so you don’t have to worry about missing a thing!

By far the best way to make sure you don’t miss anything is to sign up for my email newsletter! You’ll also get the earliest peek at our featured guest host for the evening before everyone else! I will announce the next title and my guest host for the evening in the monthly newsletter at the beginning of each quarter. I will also send out a reminder and a link to my spoiler-free review two months before our meeting, a reminder when it’s one week away, as well as a final reminder the morning of book club. And if you miss it, I’ll send out a link to the replay so you don’t miss a thing!

Be sure to sign up for my newsletter and select Books and Books, WIPs, + Sips as one of your interests so you don’t miss a thing!
