Book Club Picks from You!

Welcome to my weekly series: Book Club Picks. This week, I decided to turn the tables and ask my readers on Facebook and Twitter for their book club recommendations. I'm always looking for new ideas that I can present to my club when it's my turn to host. I posed this challenge on both social media outlets: NAME ONE BOOK THAT YOU WOULD RECOMMEND TO BOOK CLUBS. Some of the responses were books I've already read with my book club, but there are a few new ones here that I'm excited to share.




Here are the responses from Twitter!


My book club just read The Girl on the Train in July and most of the group liked it. It definitely has some interesting characters and situations to discuss!


We have not read this one, so I'm adding it to my list! Thanks for sharing your review of I Am China.


Great recommendations! My book club has actually read both of those books and I'd definitely recommend them. Here are the links to reviews by The Book Wheel Blog: 
The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry 
Orphans of Race Point



I have not read Fangirl yet. Yes, I know I need to read it! Now it is closer to the top of my list.

And here are the responses from Facebook (see below for links to the reviews):



Check out the reviews shared on Facebook:
The Ones We Trust reviewed by Mom's Small Victories
Unbecoming reviewed by Doing Dewey
Heavy Weather reviewed by Good Girl Gone Redneck
The Blue Bottle Club reviewed by Sandra's Ark

Now it's your turn! Name one book that you would recommend to book clubs.


Please let me know if you have suggestions for topics to cover, or if you would like to write a guest post for my Book Club Picks series. I'd love to hear about your book club or your favorite books for discussion!

Banned Books Week: Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park

This is the end of Banned Books Week and unfortunately, I haven't had a lot of time to write about banned books this year. But I did want to include at least one post about it, so today I wanted to share one of the book series that it seems most people are surprised to find on the list: Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park.

According to Wikipedia:
The Junie B. Jones series came in at #71 on the American Library Association's list of the Top 100 Banned or Challenged Books from 2000-2009. Reasons cited are poor social values taught by the books and Junie B. Jones not being considered a good role model due to her mouthiness and bad spelling/grammar. This is an interesting example of a banned book. Many times there are serious, controversial topics featured in books that are challenged. Things like homosexuality, drugs, vulgar language, etc. You can actually understand why people may not want their children to read those books, and why they may challenge their inclusion in school libra…

Book Review: No Story to Tell by KJ Steele

Victoria has been put down since the day she was born. First by her parents who were disappointed that she survived while her twin brother died. Then by her verbally abusive husband and his low-life friends. But soon an intriguing artist named Elliott arrives in town and starts encouraging Victoria to follow her dream of opening her own dance studio. She also begins to receive phone calls from a mysterious someone who gets her to open up about her past and face her true feelings.

In No Story to Tell, KJ Steele has captured the small-town atmosphere and brought these characters to life. From the victimized Victoria, to her drunk and obnoxious husband Bobby and his drunk and obnoxious friends, to all the side characters who you'd expect to encounter in a town like this ~ all are so realistic in both their actions and their voices. She has written a compelling story of an abused woman who thinks she is trapped in this loveless, miserable existence. But then she finds a spark of hope…

Have you ever felt like someone was watching you? You will after reading Clare Mackintosh's latest release I See You. Told from the perspectives of two women, one who appears to be targeted by a criminal and the other who is the police officer working the case, this psychological thriller will have you looking over your own shoulder by the end.

Zoe is a typical working mother who takes the Underground through London to her office every day. Like most commuters, she has a routine that she follows every day, leaving home at the same time, sitting in the same train car, taking the same route to work from the station. It's habit. But she starts to realize this may not be a good idea after seeing her own photo in an advertisement in the newspaper. Another woman who appears in the advertisement is murdered and Zoe starts to ge…
