Sandy Eichelberger I'd also suggest The Alice Network by Kate Quinn, The Orphan Keeper by Camron Wright and Beneath a Scarlet Sky by Mark T. Sullivan


message 19: by Betsy (new)

Betsy I think this would have been much more interesting if you had also told us which GR groups had selected which books. I'm often looking for interesting new groups.


message 20: by Ilene (new)

Ilene I love this list! I've read 12 of these and all received either 4 or 5 stars from me! Guess I'll be adding the rest to my TBR shelf.

My understanding is that members make certain lists. GR HQ does not then put out info on new groups. This would be your oppy to explore!!

Those are both excellent books! Enjoy!


message 28: by Deb (new)

Deb Baker Our book club has read many of these.
Great Alone was very disappointing..seemed like a different author compared to The Nightingale.
Eleanor Oliphant was a fun read.
I would add..Beartown, This Is Has It Always Is and
Behold The Dreamers!


message 29: by Mary (new)

Mary Sanders I just finished reading Martha Grimes new book, "The Knowledge" and found it a great read for summer. Thoroughly enjoyed the story and of course, her character, Richard Jury.

Bump ' All the Light We cannot see' to the top of your TBR list - it is truly wonderful


message 32: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer We have read several of these books in my book club, and are reading The Hate You Give soon. Love books that bring new perspectives to discuss and share.


message 33: by Stephanie (new)

Stephanie Fitzgerald I just finished “ Love, Hate, and Other Filters”, and really enjoyed it. I think it would be excellent for book club discussions.
