Top Ten Books That Would Make Great Book Club Picks!
1. The Reading Promise by Alice Ozma–What a great book to read while among other reading fiends. =) This is a great book that allows for the sharing of your own reading experiences, which is always fun to learn about your peers.
2. Life of Pi by Yann Martel–Because who wouldn’t want a nice philosophical discussion during book club? 😉
3. The History of Love by Nicole Krauss–A slightly confusing and multi-interpretted storyline, perfectly set up for book club discussion.
4. Anything written by Jodi Picoult–because her books would spark many interesting discussions on the slightly taboo subjects she chooses to write about.
5. The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger–A beautiful story about life, throwing in the aspect of time travel, which would spark discussion about the what ifs this novel raises.
6. The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh–Love Love Love. Everyone should love this novel. That’s reason enough.
7. Tuesday’s With Morrie by Mitch Albom–Another memoir of sorts. One of those novels with applicable life lessons that can trigger discussion beyond just what is written on the pages.
8. Room by Emma Donoghue–There is just a lot of hefty conversation starters within this text. It opens discussions on sociology, psychology, family, love, etc.
9. The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd–Coming of age story amidst the Civil Rights movement. Lovely story, a lot of discussion points.
10. The Awakening by Kate Chopin–I had to throw a classic in the mix, and this is a piece of American literature that anyone can read and take something amazing away from it, even if they end up hating the novella itself.
Those are my picks Would you pick the same? Have any other ideas? Comment and let me know!
