This month it’s my turn to host book club, meaning that I’ll be providing dessert for our discussion of Fragile Beasts by Tawni O’Dell (my 5 star review will be forthcoming on this blog), as well as selecting our book for the next two months. Check out the “Book Club” tab above to see a photo of my lovely book club!
I have several possibilities running around my mind for my selection, and wanted to ask your opinion. I usually like to preview books before I select them but of the ones mentioned below, the only one I’ve read is The Hunger Games. What do you think of each book?
The Hunger Games trilogy. Overall I loved this series and want to share it with my friends, but I have a couple of hestitations: 1) if they end up reading the trilogy, I wasn’t happy with the ending of Mockingjay, and 2) we don’t typically read Young Adult books.
Let the Great World Spin by by Colum McCann. I haven’t read this but it was recommended to me by another book club. It takes place in the early 1970’s in New York and is about several different stories that weave together in the end. However, it’s only available as hardcover and my club tends to prefer paperback.
The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. This is a book told from a dog’s point of view. The dog’s name is Enzo, which happens to be the name of the vicious mafia don in my novel, so that should be an interesting challenge for me!
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. A Young Adult book about a girl and a wolf that I’ve been wanting to read (as well as the sequel Linger).
Any thoughts on those books? Or are there any additional books your book club loved that you’d like to recommend?
