Ten Books I’d Love To Read With My Book Club (if I had one)
1. Pointe by Brandy Colbert – this book was amazing and creepy, and it would have been amazing to be able to discuss it with someone else that was reading it at the same time.
2. The Silver Witch by Paula Brackston – this doesn’t come out until April and I am desperate to read it. It’s about a woman named Tilda who escapes to a secluded cottage to overcome the grief she’s stricken with after her husband’s death, and it awakens some sort of power within her. Sounds like it’s right up my alley!
3. The Way We Bared Our Souls by Willa Strayhorn – this is the ultimate book to read with a group or even just another friend.
4. The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah – I’ve read all of her books, but I’ve never really bonded with anyone over them like I did Firefly Lane. This sounds pretty different, but if it’s written by Hannah, it’s definitely got some ‘bonding’ potential – perfect for a book club!
5. Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys – this book! I read it last year and it was absolutely amazing. I would have loved to have read it with someone else.
Honestly, I’m not a huge fan of book clubs – but if I had to choose, I would choose these. I’ve read a couple of them already, but it would have been even better to be able to discuss them while reading.
6. Best Friends Forever by Jennifer Weiner – I am a big Weiner fan, and I can’t believe I missed this one! It’s a tale of two friends who grow up together, move apart, and have to weather love, loss, and life together.
7. Lumiere by Jacqueline Garlick – This looks like a thrilling, original read, and I think it would be a lot of fun to discuss with other people!
8. The Year of Taking Chances by Lucy Diamond – Alright, alright. I have friends theme going on here, apparently. This book is about friends, new developments, and taking chances.
9. Quiet: The Power of Introverts In A World That Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain – I’m an introvert. This is a book about introverts. Not all introverts are silent, anti-social people, and I would imagine my book club would be full of introverts…what better book to discuss than a book about introverts?!
10. Daughter of the Gods by Stephanie Thornton – Set in ancient Egypt, this is a historical novel about Hatshepsut, who takes over at Egypt’s de facto ruler when her husband dies. It has received wonderful reviews and looks fantastic. It would be fun to discuss as a group.
