Introducing: teatimereads

In Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Alice asks “And what is the use of a book, without pictures or conversations?” Over the years, we’ve come to find out there’s a lot of use in books, regardless of whether they consist of pictures or not. While teatimelit is only two months old, we’ve found a lot of joy in writing formal blog posts with recommendations and thoughts of our own, as well as making friends in the book blogging community and other bookish communities. 

In our earliest group chat days, the three of us would each take turns picking and choosing a book for the group to read and discuss each month. It’s always been a lovely thing, messaging each other our thoughts over a nice cup of tea. Through that book club, we’ve gotten to read books that we wouldn’t have heard about or read on our own, including books that have come to mean a lot to us. In reflecting on our bookish adventures, we decided to revamp our love for our book club, and expand it to be an official thing!

We’re very happy to announce that we’ve decided to create a book club for teatimelit named teatimereads, where we’ll select a diverse read to read each month & discuss it together! We’re incredibly excited for our new adventure, and to see what all the tea party attendees will choose for our first book! If you’d like to join us down the rabbit hole, just click on this link!

Hello & Welcome!

Hi, hello! We’re Caitlyn, Cossette, and Mary, and we’re really excited to be launching teatimelit! We’ve always promoted our love for books on various other platforms, but wanted an opportunity to connect with other book lovers and a chance to highlight issues in literature that other people may not talk about. We have a passion for promoting a wide range of literature, and hope you find a new favourite book while browsing our blog! 

We titled our blog teatimelit as we all love tea and literature. There’s nothing better than sitting down with a good book and a nice cup of tea. We initially became friends over a mutual love for theatre and literature, which resulted in us making our own book club. In our book club, we took turns to choose our book of the month, and would review them for fun in our group chat. So, we figured, why not make a blog for it instead? 

We hope you enjoy your time here, and thank you again for checking out our blog! 

xo,

Caitlyn, Cossette & Mary.
