5 Tips On How To Host A Book Party ft MyKindaBook


Post by Taislany Gomes • November 27, 2016 • Beauty, Lifestyle, Reviews

Parties are always fun, you get your closest friends together to catch up and play some games to keep the night going. Most people organise a get together to celebrate their birthdays or just because they want to have some friends over. However, I wanted to get props and gifts for my friends just to make it a little more elaborate and give the impression that I am now a grown-up (kinda). I chose a Book Party theme because I feel like most of us get so hooked with our phones that we forget how nice it is to read a good book.book party

How To Host A Book Party

1. Choose a selection of good books.

If like me you’re hosting a Book Party it’s vital to take the time to choose some good books. I got mine from MyKindaBook. They have a vast selection of upcoming YA reads, authors and exclusive content. You can also join MyKindaBook events throughout the year and get to meet other book lovers in real life to discuss books in detail. They are so cool that they even bring the authors along! Keep an eye on forthcoming events at MyKindaBook/BookClub.

Here are the three books that made to my Book Party:book party

– Beautiful Broken Things by Sara Barbard (featured in the Zoella Book Club)

“Best friends Caddy and Rosie are inseparable. Their differences have brought them closer, but as she turns sixteen Caddy begins to wish she could be a bit more like Rosie – confident, funny and interesting. Then Suzanne comes into their lives: beautiful, damaged, exciting and mysterious, and things get a whole lot more complicated. As Suzanne’s past is revealed and her present begins to unravel, Caddy begins to see how much fun a little trouble can be. But the course of both friendship and recovery is rougher than either girl realizes, and Caddy is about to learn that downward spirals have a momentum of their own.”

– Fangil by Rainbow Rowell (also featured in the Zoella Book Club)

“Cath and Wren are identical twins, and until recently they did absolutely everything together. Now they’re off to university and Wren’s decided she doesn’t want to be one half of a pair any more – she wants to dance, meet boys, go to parties and let loose. It’s not so easy for Cath. She’s horribly shy and has always buried herself in the fan fiction she writes, where she always knows exactly what to say and can write a romance far more intense than anything she’s experienced in real life.

Now Cath has to decide whether she’s ready to open her heart to new people and new experiences, and she’s realizing that there’s more to learn about love than she ever thought possible …”

– The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge (winner of the 2016 Costa Book of the Year)

“Faith’s father has been found dead under mysterious circumstances, and as she is searching through his belongings for clues she discovers a strange tree. The tree only grows healthy and bears fruit if you whisper a lie to it. The fruit of the tree, when eaten, will deliver a hidden truth to the person who consumes it. The bigger the lie, the more people who believe it, the bigger the truth that is uncovered.

The girl realizes that she is good at lying and that the tree might hold the key to her father’s murder, so she begins to spread untruths far and wide across her small island community. But as her tales spiral out of control, she discovers that where lies seduce, truths shatter . . .”

2. Get props and goodies for the night in

I got some hand cream, notebooks, pencils, sweets, candles and a highlighter to keep us “popping”. At the end everybody can take the goodies home and remember our Book Party.book party

3. Music!

If there’s one thing any type of party needs it is MUSIC! It’s not a turn up kinda party but, I do like to have some jams on in the background just to keep the evening relaxed and fun. I recommend Ariana Grande and Britney Spears (Slumber Party ft. Tina she) to keep the girly theme.book party

4. Take loads of Selfies!

This should come easy but, make sure to take pictures during the book party. Have a mini photoshoot with your besties. If you have a polaroid even better, try to snap your friends when they are acting silly to get the true essence of the party.book party

5. Have fun!

The most important thing is that both you and your friends have a good time. It’s important to prepare the night in advance so you don’t have to worry about the small things during the party but, if you don’t get everything done in time don’t freak out! It should be a easy going night so don’t take it too serious and make sure to have fun!book party
