The Next Books of Book Club

Book Club is my most favorite.

It all started a few months ago when a friend suggested that we start a book club....and quickly grew to be one of my favorite nights of every month. I love being surrounded by a group of smart, articulate, passionate, feminist, hilarious, outspoken women all in one place. Plus, there's snacks! This is how real friendships are forged, people! Book Club, for the last few months, has been one of my "safe places" where I can go to discuss anything large or difficult weighing on my mind. It's kiiiind of like group therapy :) (But seriously.)

We just got together last week and picked out our books for the next few months -- thought I'd share to see if any of you have read them, or are looking for suggestions! One thing I particularly love about Book Club (other than the excellent people and snacks) is that we read such a variety of literature....fiction, nonfiction, fantasy, history,  scientific, long, short....it runs the gamut! Some months I love the books more than others -- that's a given with all the variety on the table -- but I always love hearing what other people have to say about the books, even if it's not one I personally loved.

Here's what we've got coming up:


NOVEMBERUnbroken
(I've already read this one and I'm obsessed. Have you seen the trailer for the upcoming movie? CHILLS. ERRRY. TIME.)

DECEMBERA Christmas Carol
(I've admittedly never read this one!) (But I love the muppet version. Does that count?)


FEBRUARYGilead

(My suggestion! BECAUSE I LOVE THIS BOOK)

APRILBad Pharma


(So sue me, I couldn't fit all 7 books in the image.) (Sorry, Christmas Carol.)

Book club is one of my favorite nights of the month as well. :)

I recommend you read Nothing to Envy (about North Korea... it's fascinating and horrifying at the same time) and The Light Between Oceans....that one has some beautiful writing.

I love Unbroken as well, read it like 3 years ago. Thanks for the link to the trailer, I hadn't seen that yet!

Yes! I love book suggestions! I just requested all the ones I haven't read from my library.

Devil in the White City - loved it! I should dig that out again. My book club just finished I Am Hutterite, which I found very interesting.

I've heard good things about a lot of your picks. I think I might need Book Club in my life. ;)
