Well, Castle fans, it’s our first Monday of hiatus. And after that finale, it seems like it will be a very long summer, huh? But here at TheTelevixen, we have a plan to help you get through the dark Mondays before season five: The Castle book club! Each Monday from June through August, we’ll have a new discussion post up about one of the Castle books. Read along, then come by and talk about it! We don’t want to give you too much homework – it is summer, after all! – so we’re splitting the Nikki Heat novels into chunks of about 100 pages a week. The Derrick Storm graphic novel and novellas will each get a week as well. Since there’s one extra week, we’ll take a break between Nikki Heat and Derrick Storm to watch The Thin Man, one of the movies that Andrew Marlowe cites as part of his inspiration for season five.
Here’s our schedule, so hit the library or bookstore and join us back here on June 4 for the first installment!
