#catchingup on #riotgrams #day24 & #day29 - #greatbookclubreads & #recentacquisitions

Plan on starting this one soon, as I've heard good things and it seems like it'll be a quick read.

JennaR3 Just finished this last night. It was good! 2y

My favorite book to recommend as a #greatbookclubreads (hashtags make for awkward grammar). The writing is great and there's so much to discuss. Fortunately/Unfortunately everyone has read it now so I don't really recommend it much anymore. #riotgrams

Day 24: #Riotgrams #Catchup #GreatBookClubReads

I've never actually been in a book club, but I imagine these to be popular choices?

I'm not, nor have I ever, been in a book club, however! Oprah usually makes a damn good pick. I read the most recent a few months before it was official and it was fabulous and based in NYC and exactly what I needed at the time shortly after I was balled over by Adiche's Americanah 👌🏻#greatbookclubreads #riotgram

I still can't believe I haven't managed to read The Underground Railroad!!! 🙄 It's only been sitting there for a year.........

Tamra Me too, but I usually like to let them age awhile in the stacks. Delayed gratification I guess! 😆 2y
cariashley Same, I really need to read Underground Railroad, it‘s been sitting on my shelf for months! 2y
RebL That was my same comment on Underground Railroad. Oprah can‘t tell me what to read, I just happen to like most of her book club picks. Lol. 2y

Cathythoughts I like the sound of Behold The Dream...... also have The Underground Railroad stacked & waiting to be read. 2y
mrozzz @Tamra that's excellent justification. I agree!! 2y
mrozzz @cariashley we should get a group together and do a buddy read to incentivize ourselves 😆 2y
mrozzz @RebL oh DEFINITELY. If she makes a pick and I haven't already read it I have a VERY hard time picking it up myself. 2y
mrozzz @Cathythoughts yes I thought Behold the Dreamers was a solid read. It's an immigrant story which is why I compared to Americanah. Have you read that one? 2y
Cathythoughts Americanah ? No , I haven‘t. Must take a closer look at it 👍 2y

📚📚📚🤓👍 #GreatBookclubReads #RiotGrams #ForTheLoveOfBooks #Favorites #BookClubPick #LibrarianLife

Some of these you may already know, but hopefully you're not familiar with all of them.

But of one thing I can assure you, ALL of these will provide a very rich reading experience for your book club & much to discuss & debate!

BellaBookNook I remember reading Defending Jacob in my bookclub whoa!!! 2y
erzascarletbookgasm Good picks! 👍 2y

#Day24 #GreatBookClubReads

I‘m currently in a book club for #TheFamiliar, so of course I‘d have to say The Familiar is great for a book club. There are so many things that I didn‘t pick up on when I read them on my own, so reading them with a group and getting to hear other people‘s thoughts and interpretations of things has really enhanced the reading experience so much for me.

#Riotgrams #day24 #GreatBookClubReads All of these books would make for great discussions in a book club. There's a diverse range here including magical realism, mystery, romance, SciFi & literary but each one is easy to read and would appeal to a wide range of people. Plus you could make up a lot of bulletpoint questions to talk about regarding the theme, outcomes & motivations of each character.

Mdargusch I think Little Fires has some great topics to discuss. 2y

emilyhaldi @PandaPanda you should move it up on your tbr!! It‘s so beautiful ❤️ 2y
emilyhaldi @L_auren I am a major fan of F&F but my book club was very polarized. You either love it or you hate it!! 2y
L_auren @emilyhaldi So true!! #blessed that we all agreed on that one. It was recommended to me by a friend who said “I hated this but you‘ll love it” 😂 2y
Cathythoughts Fates and Furies is very very good 👍I‘m a fan (edited) 2y
