August Book Club Picks
📖 COME READ WITH US! 📖 The summer has absolutely flown by! August brings a large publication month and it was truly difficult to pick which books we wanted to read together.
But, at @bookfriendsbookclub we value books that bring us together and will spark deep meaningful discussions; we think these books will do just that. Deep dive discussions and community is what @bookfriendsbookclub is all about! 🥁 Drumroll . . .
🌼 Our first pick this month is Tom Lake by Ann Pachett (Pub day 8/1). This a @barnesandnoble monthly book club pick and rumored to be another celebrity book club pick too! And for good reason . . . It’s Ann Pachett and her writing is just so beautiful and brilliant. Mini Synopsis: Tom Lake is a meditation on youthful love, married love, and the lives parents have led before their children were born. Both hopeful and elegiac, it explores what it means to be happy even when the world is falling apart. Compelling narrative and insights into family dynamics. We will discuss this book on Sunday, Aug. 20th. Times to follow once you join an IG group. 🛒 Our next author is a former Oprah’s Book Club Pick! Give it up for The Heaven & Earth Grocery Store by James McBride (Pub day 8/8). Mini Synopsis: A novel about small-town secrets and the people who keep them. “Funny, tender, knockabout, gritty, and suspenseful, McBride’s microcosmic, socially critiquing, and empathic novel dynamically celebrates difference, kindness, ingenuity, and the force that compels us to move heaven and earth to help each other.” —Booklist We will discuss this book on Sunday, Aug. 27th. Times to follow once you join an IG group.
