November 1: Top Ten Books To Read If Your Book Club Likes _______________ (if your book club likes historical fiction, inspiring stories, YA books, non-fiction, controversial books to debate about, or pick a specific book)
Book club books are tough! So I’m picking a couple genres: mystery, non-fiction, and thoughtful books.
1. Malice; Keigo Higashino. A complex and twisty mystery.
2. A Serpent’s Tooth; Craig Johnson. You can start wherever in this series, good if your book club likes the tv show Longmire.
3. Better Late Than Never; Jenn McKinlay. This is book 7 of a series, but it’s the first I read and it worked fine. A great read for cozy mystery fans–with librarians and plenty of bookish references.
4. One Child; Mei Fong. About the one child policy in China, and the unintended consequences.
5. An African In Greenland; Tété-Michel Kpomassie. From one culture to another.
6. Salt Sugar Fat; Michael Moss. Want to never look at processed food the same way again? Read this book.
7. Love from Boy; Donal Sturrock. Letters of author Roald Dahl to his mother, a great read if there are a bunch of fans in your book club.
8. Hag-Seed; Margaret Atwood. A re-telling of The Tempest. Definitely would lead to a discussion about revenge.
9. Dark Matter; Blake Crouch. Something difficult to explain without spoilers–but interesting science fiction.
10. Under a Painted Sky; Stacey Lee. Historical fiction–you could talk about the past, and the way the world has changed.
