Expat Book Club

The Expat Book Club

Welcome to The Expat Book Club

A community for book lovers – wherever you’re from, wherever you’re living, you’re welcome here! Join us on Facebook and Instagram. If you are looking for ideas for your own ‘real life’ book club, check out our Pinterest boards.

Who is The Expat Book Club For?

We set up this group to build a community of women living overseas via a love of reading. It’s a virtual version of the ‘real life’ book clubs we love; however, living overseas can make these tricky to find. The ambition is that the group will be interesting, inspiring – and fun!

The discussion starts with the book…and often veers widely off topic, which is absolutely fine here too!

This group is all about making connections with other women who are living overseas and who love to read. The ambition is that some of our members will connect in real life too, and set up Expat Book Clubs in their area.

How will the group work?

Every month we will have an ‘Expat Book Club Book of the Month’ and throughout the month we will share our thoughts.

On the last Wednesday of each month (specific date will be confirmed each month) we will have a ‘Big Expat Book Club Chat’. We will aim to do this live… However, time zones always make these things tricky, so the video and comments will be posted online so that you can comment later.

The next book will be announced the day after the Big Expat Book Club Chat.

This group is a supportive community where we share our love of books…criticism of the books is encouraged – criticism of each other is not.

If you have a reading recommendation, please share!
