A Hundred Summers discussion questions

A Hundred Summers discussion questionsI’m a big fan of last month’s book club pick, A Hundred Summers by Beatriz Williams. It was a nice change of pace from the heavier, more psychological books we’ve been reading, but it wasn’t all lightness and fluff.

At its core, A Hundred Summers is a love story. But it’s also one about friendship and betrayal and secrets and lies. Jumping back and forth between 1931 and 1938, we watch Lily Dane fall in love while we simultaneously watch her deal with heartbreak.

A couple of twists and turns leave readers wondering what exactly happened and what is actually happening. Some of our book club girls saw what was coming. I, for one, was totally duped.

Here are some of the questions we’ll be discussing in our Facebook group (spoilers ahead!):

Every Fifteen Minutes discussion questions

I won’t lie to you. I did not love Lisa Scottoline’s Every Fifteen Minutes. There were definitely points when I was completely engrossed and totally sucked in, trying to figure out what was going on. But more often than not, I was left feeling a little meh. Just looking at the cover right now, I find myself annoyed….Continue Reading “Paperback Posse | Every Fifteen Minutes Discussion Questions”

The Good Girl discussion questions

The Good Girl discussion questionsWe have been very into psychological thrillers in our little book club lately, and that is certainly true for August’s book, The Good Girl.

And man did this one suck you in and then spit you right out.

I had a feeling something good was coming when you guys started posting in our FB group when you got to the end and the general consensus was very much like this comment: “I just finished – holy shit whoa!!”

Let’s just say, no one seems to have seen the ending coming and everyone seems to have been very satisfied with it.

But let’s stop talking around all of the twists and turns and jump right into them…

Please note: there are MAJOR spoilers ahead that will ruin the book for you if you haven’t finished it yet. Proceed with caution. 😉

Luckiest Girl Alive discussion questions

It feels like it’s been so long since I read this book. It was one of those that grab you tightly and pull you in so that you absolutely need to know what happens. You know, the kind that you stay up way past your bedtime reading.

Needless to say, I finished this one early in the month and have actually gotten through a book and a half since then—which is major for me considering the girls are on summer vacation and I’ve felt like I’m getting nothing done lately.

The overall consensus in our virtual book club is that this is a good one. The girls who weighed in all seemed to be just as sucked into the story as I was. My biggest issue was the ending. With all of the drama and twists and turns, I expected a serious wallop at the end. But I was left feeling a little meh.

The Vacationers by Emma Straub

It’s book talk time!

Personally, I think The Vacationers was the perfect way to start off the summer—it’s light and beachy, but still juicy enough to sink our teeth into a little. Like I mentioned at the beginning of the month, this book helped me get back into a reading groove last summer and I thought it would be great for anyone who had fallen off the book wagon a bit.

I can’t wait to hear what you guys thought! Let’s start with some discussion questions…
