What’s Up Next – Book Club

I love following the “book scene” and hearing about new books – and as you can tell by my blog, I love books that I find worth talking about. Mentally provocative, if you will.

Today I was asked for Book Club suggestions by a friend. Here are my tips!

Disclaimer: I haven’t read any of these books, so I’m just going on what I’ve heard, but this is what I would suggest for my book club if we met today. (See you guys in two weeks!)

If your book club loves a thriller:

  • Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough

If your book club loves books about relationships:

  • A Separation by Katie Kitamura

If you want to discuss current events without reading about current events:

  • 1984 by George Orwell
  • It Can’t Happen Here by Sinclair Lewis
  • Plot Against America by Phillip Roth
  • American Street by Ibi Zoboi (BRAND NEW 2/14/2017)

If you want to discuss social policy (I know this is up my book club’s alley):

  • Dreamland by Sam Quinones
  • Evicted by Matthew Desmond
  • Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance

I have about three of these ready to go as soon as I finish Moonglow! If you read any of them, let me know! And Happy Reading!
