Book Club Books

Around a year ago, some of my fellow reader friends from my time in a bookstore cafe and I decided to start a book club of our very own to get in our talking-about-books fix, and enjoy a monthly pot luck while we are at it.

To pick out next read, we created a google doc with some titles that we thought would be interesting books to read and discuss. We each pick our top 4 or 5 books on the list and the book with the most votes wins the pick! We typically read half the book at a time and meet once a month.

This is where you come in. We are all thinking our list feels a little bit stale. I would absolutely love some prescriptions for new books to put on our list! I’ve listed below the 6 titles we have enjoyed (mostly) so far and a sample of the other books on our list.

Based on these, what do you think my book club should read next?

So far, we have read the following 6 titles:

  1. The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman
  2. Dark Matter by Blake Crouch
  3. The Girls by Emma Cline
  4. Yesternight by Cat Winters
  5. A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman
  6. The Man in the High Castle by P.K. Dick

Some other titles on our list include

  1. Room by Emma Donoghue
  2. The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell
  3. Life after Life by Kate Atkinson
  4. In a Dark Dark Wood by Ruth Ware
  5. The Last Days of Jack Sparks by Jason Arnopp
  6. Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah
  7. The Unseen World by Liz Moore
  8. Before the Fall by Noah Hawley
  9. The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
  10. Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer

As you can see, our list is a smorgasbord of all kinds of books, so we really are up for anything.

My dear readerly friends. I would absolutely love your help with this project! How does your book club pick books? Are there any books you consider to be must reads for a book club? Which book has fostered the best discussion for your book club? I would love to hear any and all book club stories you have down in the comments!

And I hope your reading life is outta this world ☺
