Is there anything that puts fear into your heart like having to choose a book for bookclub? Here are 29 titles I would recommend for book clubs - books that I think most people will enjoy reading, ones that will spark interesting discussions, and ones that you'll feel good about having forced other people to read. Bringing Up Bebe by Pamela Druckerman - Guaranteed to spark an interesting discussion about culture, parenting and any other number of topics. I've Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella - If you're looking for funny and fluffy, it's hard to beat Sophie Kinsella.
Jefferson's Sons by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley - This middle-grade historical fiction title is so well-done, I can hardly stand it. Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain - This is my pick for this coming year, and I cannot wait to hear what everyone thinks of it, especially because our group is definitely more full of introverts. Make the Bread, Buy the Butter by Jennifer Reese - A quick read with all sorts of funny stories about food, cooking, and raising animals sprinkled with lots of recipes. The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak - A really elegantly written young adult book about an orphan girl in Germany during WWII and the family that takes her in.
The Help by Kathryn Stockett - A bestseller for a reason, our bookclub had a fantastic discussion about three women (two black, one white) in the deep South during the Civil Rights movement. The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan - This one is pretty hefty, but it's so interesting that no one in our group seemed to have too much trouble getting through it.
What the Dog Saw: And Other Adventures by Malcolm Gladwell - This was the first book I read with my bookclub and it was a great night - this book has so much to talk about and so many interesting connections between all the short articles. Moon Over Manifest by Clare Vanderpool - One of my favorite Newbery winners in recent years, this story is told by two different voices - a young girl during the Great Depression and a young boy just before WWI breaks out.
Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother by Amy Chau - This is my pick for my bookclub this year (I'm leading the discussion in December) and I am just really excited to see how everyone feels about this book about Chinese parenting - or at least one woman's take on it - and how it works in America (full review here).
Nutureshock: New Thinking About Children by Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman - Ralphie picked this one for her bookclub last year and I loved the amazing discussion about sleep, racism, praising children, and a whole slew of other parenting topics (full review here). Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand - This book is non-fiction but it's so amazing, it's hard to believe someone didn't make it up.
Wonder by R.J Palacio - A remarkably done middle-grade novel about a boy with severe facial abnormalities who begins attending public school for the first time in middle school.
Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions by Dan Ariely - Along the same lines as Malcolm Gladwell's books, but Ariely is a professor and runs his own research studies. The Best Bad Luck I Ever Had by Kristin Levine - This middle-grade historical fiction title is set in Alabama during WWI. The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls - One of those books that makes your own childhood look really really easy, this is a memoir about growing up in a completely dysfunctional family, where the family keeps moving in the middle of the night and the children eventually realize that the parents are never going to pull themselves together (full review here). Red China Blues by Jan Wong - In college, I read this memoir about a Canadian girl (of Chinese descent) who goes over to China during the Cultural Revolution, on fire with Mao's vision. Room by Emma Donoghue - Horrifying, but ultimately full of hope, this book about a little boy raised by his mother in a single room where she is kept by her kidnapper and their eventual escape, explores what happens when the whole world opens up before you (full review here). The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson -This was one of the best books we read last year in our book group. That Used To Be Us by Thomas Friedman and Mandelbaum - About China's increasing dominance in the financial and educational world, while America struggles to keep up. By the way, our bookclub has tossed around the idea of doing a theme for the year, whether it was books written by women, fiction only, children's lit, etc. As I looked through the list, it seemed like the authors to look for were Suzanne Collins, Stephenie Meyer, Veronica Roth, John Greene, Cassandra Clare, and J.K. I would definitely recommend that students go onto this website to see what interesting new books you can find.
Like the article, have any suggestions, put them in the comment boxes below, we’d love to hear from you. In the last month I continued with my thirst for reading, I continued to focus on the books I already own, but of course I also bought and read some new books.
The sudden thumping of a heart and the skipping of beats, the chill running down the spines and sudden electricity felt in your skin is what happens when you have a goose bump.
Sometimes, when you suddenly come across a song that completely justifies or at least describe the same kind of situation you are in you are bound to feel the electricity running through your body.


There is another type of result that might actually give you the goosebumps and those are any sort of result after a serious medical test.
Excitement, a state of being that is bound to be followed by the bumpy things on your skin. To have an instant goosebump, all that is required is something to happen right in front of your eyes, or even hear about something that has happened in real. Yes, falling in love or some exciting givings can make you feel euphoric.But there are some more feelings that may be the reason for an instant goosebump.
There is seriously nothing as scary and an emotion that can get you to have an instant goosebump like within microseconds.
There is non-fiction, chick-lit, young adult and middle grade titles, history books and parenting books.
Told from the perspective of Sally Hemming's slave children, growing up on Thomas Jefferson's plantation, knowing their father is the white master.
And wow, did we have a fascinating discussion about the food sources in our country, the organic industry, and a multitude of other topics.
Turner - The first thirty pages are a bit slow, but after that this diary-style novel really gets going about Sarah, a teenager growing up in the West, trying to educate herself, and, of course, falling in love. Olympic runner Louis Zamperini's plane is shot down in the Pacific during WWII and after surviving on a tiny inflatable raft for 47 days, he's taken prisoner by the Japanese.
The first chapter (about 30 pages) is a smidge slow, but after that, it is hard to put down! Dit is anxious for the new post master to arrive, since rumor is that he has a son Dit's age, but when the post master's family arrives, Dit can't decide whether he's more surprised that the family is black or that the promised friend is a girl (full review here). After a horrible car accident, the course of Mia's life is drastically changed and all the plans she’s had for her future are called into question. During the years she spends there, she comes to realize that Mao's ideas for China might not be all that she's hoped. Lockhart - One of my very favorite YA books of all time about a very smart girl at a boarding school who discovers her boyfriend belongs to a secret boys-only society and is determined to get in.
This was a fun book to read in an election year and so interesting I read huge passages of it outloud to Bart. I think that might be a fun idea, since it'd make it at least slightly easier to choose a book. When I looked at this list, I was surprised that Harry Potter did not make it to the top ten, but was number 12 coming after Looking for Alaska by John Green. They are only suggestions, but it shows you the description of the book and then gives you reviews from people who have read it. We have come across this feeling over many times in the span of your lifetime and there will be more to come on our way. It’s kind of weird to think that someone where must have gone through the same feelings as have you. For those, who have been notoriously lazy and did not bother to study that hard, they have this feeling magnified by 10 times. Being selected for an interview and then you have to go into that institution just to make yourself presentable, be it your first day in a school or be it your day at work. You can actually feel the heart thumping in your ear and have the feeling that it might come out of your mouth. Reading a book that is so intense or may be in some uncanny way similar to your life or that of somebody else’s you know of, absolutely freak out. It may be somebody else’s experience but there is nothing like experiencing something by oneself.
They maybe something emotional, sad, or that of sexual in nature but such emotions do cause an eerie emotion in you. This book is deeply romantic, but to call it only a romance would be to sell it far too short (full review here). Follows a young woman who marries a very rich widow and feels like she can't escape the shadow cast by his larger-than-life first wife who died in a boating accident. This book is absolutely fascinating - I even sent my mom a copy for her birthday a couple of years ago (she loved it too).


It tracks the migration of black Americans from the South to the North and West during the 40-70s and their experiences assimilating into new cultures (and the lives they left behind in the South). You'll want to have a relatively calm group, though, because I could imagine discussion getting a little heated if you have people who are extremely polar on either side of the political aisle (I found the book itself to be very even-handed). Other authors whose name popped up were Scott Westerfeld with the book called Uglies, Markus Zusak with The Book Thief, Jay Asher with Thirteen Reasons Why, Laurie Halse Anderson with Speak, Rick Riordan with Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief, James Dasher with Maze Runner, and many more great authors and selections.
There are many genres to choose from including Fiction, Non-fiction, Classic, Manga, Mystery, Thriller, Spirituality, Self-help, Suspense, and many other great options.
These are the worst sort of tests because not only does it involve blood but that too being extracted right out our veins and then it is the waiting part. When you have some big news or even better, when you hear something that might get you excited it is a sure feeling that you might have a wide grin, may be when a little dramatic, small drops of tear and then the feeling like your body is trembling. They have all had the jitters, the butterflies and some have claimed that they almost had an uncanny feeling as to when they were to get married. If we come across something that is brutal in nature, may be from the TV shows that we come across claiming to have happened to somebody’s life in reality, which gets one to have the gory sense of feeling created inside makes the chills to run down and create the sense of a deep emptiness, suggesting that it might have been you. There are so many thing one can be scared of and an encounter  with it brings along the beating of the heart, so fast that it might burst into the cage provided for it. This is the time when you actually feel nervous and with every passing second the heart seems to stop beating and time seems to stop ticking. The sense of reading the life of someone or even if its fiction is has always been about a journey through thick and thin or even at times that of facts. It numbs the mind and prevents it from thinking clearly because it has already been preoccupied with something that depresses you.
It is really interesting to know something through such a platform, right in front of your eyes and your mind read and evaluating every single word.
The mind completely shuts and nothing in the world matters than to be getting over with something that can cause fear in you, so that the uneasiness in your body is gone and so are the goosebumps. I love this post, and I love so many of your books and have added a half-dozen more to my wish list! It falls more into the excitement category, where the goosebumps are something that is absolutely inevitable in nature. This doesn’t happen, what happens when you fall in love is nothing but a chill running down your spine and giving an instant goosebump. So emotions as can be summed up can be said to play a major role in producing the goosebumps that we have every now and then under such circumstances. On the other hand, getting out of love, or as colloquially called a “break-up” may also be the reason for an instant goosebumps. I thought that her insight into French parenting was interesting, although I thought that she acted like it was the correct way in all ways. They definitely do some things right, but I will not stop nursing at 3 months or distance myself from my children. I read it, as everyone raved, but for some reason, there was something about it that bothered me.
WWII during the London Blitz, and the sequel just came out last week, with a third in the works! Before I moved six years ago, one of the book groups I belonged to picked a theme every year. They might choose an area (Asia, Africa, South America, etc) or a topic, or even a range (youth fiction for example). If you change to going with a theme, be flexible and be willing to change back if it doesn't work for your group.
