The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd
- I've been meaning to read this book for a long time, but haven't gotten around to it as of yet. I think it would garner a good discussion about relationships and how memory is dealt with.
- This book just sounds awesome and disturbing. A discussing of personal reactions would be interesting...
- A rousing discussing of religion, faith, and love would undoubtably follow the conclusion of this book.
- I think reading this for a book club choice would force me to actually start reading it. I've been meaning to read it for years....
- Huge historical backdrops and following your dreams...what good book discussions are made of.
- Discussing the repercussions of the foster care system,. beauty, and the human spirit would be on the agenda with this book.
- See is a beautiful writer and I believe this book would lead to discussions of lyrical writing, history, and methods of adaptation.
- A choice that would probably inspire discussion of "what if" in a group. It would be interesting to hear what others would want to their last lectures to be.
- Published with much scandal, I would love to read Flaubert's masterpiece and discover what others think about societal contraints and the intricacies of marriage.
- Discussing mental illness, identity, class standing, and how family influences your actions, this would be an ideal choice for any book club.
I love books that make you think, but sometimes you do need to read a little fluff to break up the mental strain. These books are not, by any means, fluff. Perhaps that's why I haven't really picked any of them up. Or...perhaps it's because I keep getting distracted by new releases. Ugh! Must remedy this.
What are some books you'd be interested in reading for a book club?
