So, you're considering joining our group? Fantastic!! Our goal at Fluff, Fantasy, and Cocktails, an all female -identifying reading group, is to have a wonderful time together sipping on cocktails after reading some great books. Will all the books turn out to be great? Maybe, maybe not. But if you attend events with the intention of having fun, and a welcoming attitude, then it won't matter if the book was a 3-star vs a 5-star read. If you think it's a 3-star read, don't finish it, and attend the event anyway. ;)
We'll be reading books in the Fantasy genre including paranormal, mystery, romance, etc. We'll also read some "Fluffy" books - super light and easy reading, which may also be “dark”.
I hope that you decide to join us and help us grow into a vibrant reading community interlaced with wonderful activities that will be fun, that make you cry or blush, and occasionally cause your best friend to give you the side eye cuz you're giggling loudly, cursing that alpha male who thinks that he knows it all, or whooping it up for that female who saves the day (or human race)!
We'll also have occasional outings with NO book attached. Just for fun, because we can. Whoop Whoop!
On to the business of it all: This is an Adults-only group for those of us identifying as women. ALL members must be 18+ since some of the books may have adult content, but not all of them will. I'll do my best to indicate which do so that you can stay away from those events if you prefer. If you're not 21 yet, feel free to join us at appropriate outings and enjoy a non-alcoholic cocktail. RSVPs will always be done as individuals so that all attendee names will appear in the list. The only people who will show up as having guests are the organizers since some events may be cross posted. Also, ALL members must have a profile picture of THEMSELVES clearly showing their full face, and they must list their REAL first name and at least a last initial. Any trickery trying to get past this will lead to removal from the group. In my other groups, I've had some people trying to advertise porn with pictures of models, so I've decided to take a hard line on this. If you see it, please let me know.
