CRLiterature Book Club Journal Header by inknalcohol


Hello! I hope you're enjoying LOVE IS THE DRUG as much as I am! What's not to love about a devastating plague and a government conspiracy plot?


Johnsonloveisthedrug by PinkyMcCoversong


Let's get into the mood with some spooky shots of DC:


The Grotto by theworldisavampire  Hope and Glory by futurowoman  soldier gazes back by futurowoman  Heavenly Light by aponom

 Capitol 5 by mikeypetrucciMetro by whitebengal13


And now for the discussion questions!


  • 1. How do you feel about the setting? Do you think it adds more tension to the story to have it set in the nation's capitol? How would it be different if this were set in a small town?
  • 2. It's not hard to imagine what it must feel like for Bird to be so under pressure from her parents to be a certain way, act a certain way, go to a certain college, have a certain future. How are you anticipating that Bird's feelings about her parents's wishes will change as mysteries unravel, and as she undergoes personal traumas of her own?


  • 3. Race plays a major role in LOVE IS THE DRUG, and in most of Alaya Dawn Johnson's work. I'm finding it striking how much LITD is paralleling current events, intentionally or not. How does this make you feel, while you're following Bird and the other characters in the book navigate their world?


  • 4. How about you ask some questions? I want to hear what you want to talk about this month, at mid-point. 

Audience participation?


For extra points, imagine that the v flu infected your town. What would you do? Write a short scene (500-1000 words) about this.

Remember, our prize this month is awesome:



Johnsonthesummerprince by PinkyMcCoversong

The top participant this month will receive a hardcover copy of Alaya Dawn Johnson's last book, THE SUMMER PRINCE, thanks to Arthur A. Levine Books/Scholastic. To win the prize, contribute awesome stuff to the discussion, and participate in the activities!

And, while we're on prizes, the big winner of the box o' books for January-June is AGMeade! YAY! AGMeade, get in touch with me, and I'll send you your winnings.

Now. DISCUSS!

It would be nice to know of the rules. I would strongly suggest posting some rules about what gets accepted and what doesn't. That way I don't waste my 5 submission a week limit on something that can't get in.
