And finally, here is part 4 of the list of rogue book group choices for when your book club feels like it's stuck in a rut. These selections are from Booklist's live event (sponsored by NoveList) with book group experts, and you can watch the full video of the event here.
The Opposite of Loneliness
by Marina Keegan
by Carolyn Baugh
by Louisa Hall
Your group may spend some time sorting out what has actually happened in this book, which has lots of different perspectives and an interesting timeline. (Plus, it will make folks with an Amazon Alexa think.) This will work especially for groups that liked David Mitchell’s The Cloud Atlas or Emily St. John Mandel’s Station Eleven.
The Wangs vs. the World
by Jade Chang
A funny book—how rogue to discuss a book that is not a bummer! Plus, it’s a road trip novel and an immigrant story with lots of different pieces to discuss. If your group likes books with family issues—think The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney—this will be a fun one.
