Excellent Book Club Choice

If your group read The Help, this is even better. So many discussable topics and heartbreaking story of slavery in 1800's.

Really wonderful story. Hosseini has a beautiful way of telling multiple stories into one. Heartbreakingly wonderful.

None of Us Liked This

Really odd book set in the depression. Didn't like the character, didn't like the way the story was told, really not interesting.

Twists and Turns will Keep you Reading

Haunting novel told to the dead sister from the sister left living. Good read, but not much to discuss.

Book of Short Stories

I really loved this book, but not everyone in the club did. Because each chapter is a story in itself with interactions around the core character it can be confusing with all the new characters. But the stories are each quite enjoyable.

Rich story of mystery, murder and family.

Great choice for a book club. A definite page-turner.

 
Poorly Written, Graphic, Romantic
Don't Waste Your Time

Really, not one that your book club needs to read. Too many other wonderfully engaging books out there. Save the smut for your own time.

This was a slow read and over filled with information, but all in all I was glad I read it to the end. Very discussable, but may not appeal to all.

Witty account of 2 teenagers dealing with cancer

A really engaging story told from Hazel's perspective. Hazel is charming, adorable, and falls in love with Augustus. Both are suffering from cancer and these two have a romance that stands the test of time. Lots to discuss.

Christmas Trees Lit The Sky

This book is not about Christmas but WWII from the German's perspective which I found really interesting. The Christmas trees in the title were bombs going off. This is a memoir and the author is still living, currently in Iowa. My favorites were the family stories and the recipes included. A really interesting story.

Calling Me Home

All of us loved this book and we had a very rich discussion about this novel. There was a lot to discuss around racism and forbidden love. I highly recommend for book clubs.
