Join us for another night of great discussion! Check out the comments to see options for December. You may have heard that Reese Witherspoon started her own book club in 2017 simply called Reese’s Book Club. As of October 2020, there are a total of 43 books on the list. Two of those are Young Adult novels so we will exclude those for now. We still have a list of 41 great books to work with! I will nominate 4 books (starting from the beginning of the list) and we will eventually choose two books every month from 2 different genres. You can read one or both and we will discuss. All of the books can pretty much be divided into 5 genres so I will put their classification beside the title. I will post 4 books in the comment section every month. Please vote for your two favorites. Here’s the beginning of the list which will keep us occupied for the next 4 months. These are all the picks from 2017 and 2018: 1. Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman (Contemporary Fiction) 2. The Alice Network by Kate Quinn (Historical Fiction) 3. The Lying Game by Ruth Ware (Mystery/Thriller) 4. Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng (Mystery/Thriller) 5. The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman (Contemporary Fiction) 6. This is The Story of a Happy Marriage by Ann Patchett (Non-fiction/Memoir) 7.
