I am in the process of putting together a “real life” book club. I am doing it with a few girls who work at a local coffee shop and will be posting a flier and also hosting it there. This is being done for two reasons, A, I like to read and B, it could be an opportunity to meet new and potentially like-minded people. I’m currently in a group through my library, and while 90% of the time I enjoy the books, but almost all the members are 20 to 30 years my senior and the environment is a little sterile. Because the beginnings of this club is almost all through advertisement and word of mouth I’m unsure of the age group.
Now we come to the purpose of this post, I’m starting to compile a list of titles. They could be YA or adult but the general consensus is that it be fiction, and probably under 600 pages, that seems manageable to read in a month. Maybe it would be best to start with books I am already familiar with and enjoyed?
Here are three that I have come up with:
- The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
- The Kitchen Boy by Robert Alexander
- Loving Frank by Nancy Horan
So what do you think yay or nay? Any suggestions or ideas would be great!
