What Should I Bring to a Book Club Meeting?

1 The Women by Kristin Hannah

Joining the Army Nurse Corps becomes an impulsive choice for nursing student Frankie McGrath when her brother deploys to Vietnam. Amidst the chaos of war, Frankie finds herself overwhelmed. But even more, disconcerting is the experience of returning home to a country divided and disillusioned by politics. Kristin Hannah’s novels are always beloved by book clubs, making her a definite inclusion on my list of top book club books in 2024.

2 Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

You’ll find Where the Crawdads Sing to be an extraordinary portrayal of the natural world, a poignant tale of growth, and a gripping story that involves a potential murder. It serves as a reminder that our childhood experiences shape us and that nature harbors both captivating and unsettling secrets. This book has recently topped the New York Times Best Seller list and has also been selected by Reese Witherspoon for her Book Club.

How do I choose my next book club book? Based on your preferences and topics that you would be interested in discussing. By the way, you know that you don’t necessarily need a paper book with you. You can replace it using the novels app. A large library of fiction is available on FictionMe.net and your choice is almost unlimited. You can install novel apps on iPhone, iPad, and Android. There is a wide selection of fiction, as well as novels in any genre, including not the most famous ones. You might even find a new favorite author you haven’t heard of in your book club.


3 Mid-Flight by Lisa Wilkes

Are you searching for a captivating story with a plethora of engaging topics to discuss? Look no further than Mid-Flight. Set shortly, this novel takes place shortly after a meteor crashes and unleashes a dangerous pathogen. As the president succumbs to power-driven madness and caters to antidote-resistant citizens, tensions rise.

Andrea Marks-Joseph, in her STARRED review, commends the author for gracefully and wisely addressing these challenging subjects, showing a genuine understanding of human nature. But that’s not all! The romance in Mid-Flight is truly exceptional. The relationship between Lexi and Jason is one of the most captivating I have come across. It doesn’t feel contrived, like something out of pure daydream fiction. Instead, it feels and real, as if it’s a couple I know and root for, ready to take on the establishment.

4 The Midnight Library: A GMA Book Club Pick by Matt Haig

There is a library somewhere beyond the edge of the universe. It holds an infinite number of books, each telling the story of a different reality. One book portrays your current life, while another portrays an alternate life stemming from any different choice you could have made. Curiosity about the path not taken is natural. What if you had the opportunity to visit the library and witness these other lives firsthand? Would any of them truly surpass your own?

5 Native Love Jams Tashia Hart

You’ll love this delightful enemies-to-lovers romance perfect for those who enjoy discussing love while indulging in delicious food. It’s a lighthearted, spicy, and sweet treat that unfolds during the first Indigenous Food Days festival.

6 The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah

You actually chose this one for an online buddy read that you hosted but ended up failing spectacularly and reading it AFTER the discussion that went on without you — and that was the worst because there is a reason this book is a popular book club read. There’s so much to discuss in this book about a young girl and her family, led by her father who hasn’t been right since Vietnam, who moves to the middle of nowhere Alaska. It’s a harsh life, especially when you’re ill-equipped and dealing with your explosive father, and this one will break your heart.
