Every few months I have to bribe book recommendations out of all I encounter for my Book Club. This is always a difficult thing to do because we can't read just any book, because our Book Club is organized through the Church we need fairly "clean" books to read and review. They don't have to be PG or G rated books but maybe on the PG-13 level.
I will read books that I think would be great for book club but often times I have to nix them because they are a bit too violent or have too much sex in them (Mom, please don't be too scandalized).
Anyway, I am throwing myself at your feet, please in the name of all that is holy throw me a bone and give me some recommendations for Book Club. Just to give you an idea here are a few of the books we have read in the last year or so.
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas
The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale
The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls
The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows By JKR
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin
The Secret life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd
A Long way from Chicago by Richard Peck
Here are a the few recommendations I have thus far, please help me add to them.
The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards
The Friday night Knitters club by Kate Jacobs
The Storyteller's Daughter by Cameron Dokey
