Having a book club would be so useful so that 1. I can stay on top of my reading, 2. have people I can discuss feeeeeelings with, and 3. to not only have a "support group" of some kind, but to develop great bookish relationships. Below are books that are mostly coming out this year and would be great conversation starters.
Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway
Why: to admire Robin Benway and to compare against other disappearing and reappearing best friend books.
Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke by Anne Blankman
Why: to recap on our feelings of the first book then talk about all the historical/nazi elements involved and the TENSION.
Paperweight by Meg Haston
Why: to talk about the deep stuff like suicide and eating disorders.
Why: to ask each other "would you pay to cure heartbreak and erase your memory?" Also, I'm very interested in others' heartbreak stories.
Things We Know by Heart by Jessi Kirby
Why: to talk about everything involved with organ donating. It's a fascinating subject for me.
After Hours by Claire Kennedy
Why: honestly, I just really want to know about everyone's job and dare experiences
The Revenge Playbook by Rachael Allen
Why: we can be typical girls and complain about guys.
Love, Fortunes, and Other Disasters by Kimberly Karalius
Why: THE CUTENESS. I want to talk about the cuteness!
Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan
Why: to appreciate one of the best romance trends. Another "let's read this as a group so we can squeal about the cuteness."
Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
Why: if by some chance I'm not the only one who hasn't read this, we can support each other!
