Get ready to add to your TBR List! Browse these Discussion-Worthy Book Club Books that will jump-start your next meeting.

Encouraging a lively discussion at a Book Club meeting can be a challenge. I mean, besides the wine and cheese, the real purpose of the meeting is to talk about the fantastic book you read.

So preparation is essential. You want to pick a discussion-worthy book, so we decided to make it easy and compile this list for you!

Finding the right Book Club Book is easy when you follow these helpful tips.

1. Keep the mood of the club in mind when selecting the book. Is the group on a roll and ready to tackle that long thick book you’ve been talking about for months? Or is the team struggling with the last few books you’ve read, and you need to add some levity to the group?

2. Look for a new author; a book club is about pushing you out of your reading comfort zone. It brings a new dynamic to the group and gives you a fresh writing style to discuss.

 3. Selecting a paperback is always a good idea because not everyone has an e-reader or a large book budget. Remember, it’s important to keep the tone of the club positive and courteous always. Meetings should be a haven for members to share their thoughts openly without judgment. Belonging to a Book Club is a unique kind of friendship.

4. Don’t forget the power of friendship. Celebrate something; It always sends a positive vibe and encourages bonding. There’s always something to celebrate like birthdays, new homes, new babies, promotions or successful business ventures.

5. Select a book that emphasizes the importance of relationships or empowerment, and share your thoughts with the group to spark positive feedback. Alternatively, consider celebrating a lesser-known holiday with a festive spread of food, drinks, and decorations. Both options can provide an opportunity for fun and bonding.

    My book club read Searching for Pilar by Patricia Hunt Holmes, published in April by River Grove Books. The heroine is kidnapped by sex traffickers in Mexico and smuggled to Houston to work in the glitzy mens clubs and then in a cantina bordello. Her brother searches for her until he finds her but then must battle the US legal system. Everyone said they had no idea that world existed in our hometown and we discussed it for two hours. There is a book club reading guide.
