I just started a book club. The first meeting was today. We read Modern Romance. It was a great book to discuss. Suggest a book that you love or think is worthy of a discussion. No genre is off limits.
  1. All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
    Not sure if this will be a good book to discuss or not, but it was on a few of our to-read lists, so this is the January book.
  2. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
    Read this cover to cover in one day - it's that addicting and thrilling!

  3. Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng
    This is a great book and we had an excellent discussion about it.

  4. Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff
    Just finished reading this with my book club - discussion next Wednesday and I can't wait

  5. The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P. By Adele Waldman
    So interesting, The novel gives a fascinating look inside the main character's head as he starts one relationship and looks back on old ones. Perhaps the only books I've loved so much while also sort of hating the protagonist. So many feelings and an interesting look at today's dating scene. Would be a great follow up to Modern Romance!!

  10. One More Thing By B.J Novak

    This is a really good opportunity to read B.J Novak's One More Thing. It's a collection of short stories. Thought provoking and surprisingly sensitive, these pieces are not only comedic but insightful. To add, these stories are filled with memorable characters that make it all the better. This is perfect for a book club because it even includes discussion questions. My friends and I discussed about our favourite stories and answered the discussion questions. Highly recommend this.

  11. The Boy Next Door by Irene Sabatini
    I bought this book for only $3 a couple summers ago and loved it! It's about a young girls life in post independent Zimbabwe. She gets involved with a young white man and their story unfolds during a war that's trying to separate her people from his. It's a very good read. Informative yet enjoyable.

  12. Kitchens of the Great Midwest
    I loved it! But probably because the main character is named Eva and was born in Minnesota. And my name is Eva and was born in Minnesota. But it is a good book. Plus there are some recipes in it so you can make food!

  13. In the woods - Tara French
    I read this in a couple days—it's suspenseful and surprising and would definitely be a good book for discussion!

  14. Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman
    A hilarious look at good vs. evil, and the end of the world.
    Suggested by @13spencer
  15. Travels with Charley - John Steinbeck
    Steinbeck travels the US with his French poodle Charley. His insights are profound and moving, his stories of people and places engaging. So much room for discussion.
    Suggested by @sarahkieffer
  16. Citizen, Claudia Rankine. It's often listed under poetry, but is more like short essays, and is easily one of the most important books written this year.
    Suggested by @iguanodonna
  17. The First Bad Man by Miranda July
    If your book club is fearless and not too buttoned up! Intense, honest and weird. I wish I had read this with a group of friends for the purpose of discussing over drinks.
    Suggested by @ladyprofessor
  18. Bennington Girls Are Easy
    A pretty solid choice for lots of group discussions especially if your book club is all girls. It would be interesting to see how the group interprets the two main characters. I liked this book way more than I thought I would (I think you would too even though you and I differ on the books we like sometimes)
