Happy BLOGMAS Day 21!
I found this idea on someone’s blog, but I unfortunately can’t remember who. I thought it was so clever, and I’m sure you all were dying to know. Since this is the first one I’ve done, I’m going to use books I’ve read.
My Name is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout
This book has a heartbreaking and heartwarming mother/daughter relationship. I know there are a lot of people who love to read about that. This one in particular is a favorite of mine. It’s such a new mother/daughter story that I’ve never read before.
Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
This is another favorite of mine. It has interesting topics to discuss one big one being adoption. There are a lot of big secrets, strong opinions, and butting heads. I would love to reread this one, eventually.
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Evelyn Hugo gives readers a piece of the LGBTQ+ community. I think it’s the perfect amount someone entering that genre. I know it won’t be for everyone, but I love to hear the different opinions.
All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
A Pulitzer Prize Winner (2015). This is a beautiful and polarizing WWII book. There is a character in here that readers either hate or love. It would be interesting to see everyone’s thoughts during a book club. The chapters are very short, and I know that the audio book is a great one to listen to.
This Tender Land by William Kent Krueger
Are you tired of hearing about this book yet? I’m not. I know that this is my favorite book, but I think it would also be a fantastic novel to pick apart during discussion. There are diverse characters, interesting plot points, and some rich Native American history.
If you enjoyed this, then give it a like and follow my blog. Be respectful and happy reading!
