January 2024 BFBC Picks

🎉January Book Picks 🎉

Happy New Year!

We are so excited for you to join us for another new year of reading!

If you don’t know us already, @bookfriendsbookclub is a monthly bookclub hosted by @bigskybooks and @mommaleighellensbooknook.

Each month, we choose one or two historical

fiction or literary fiction books that make for

great discussion. We tend to love family dramas, strong women, and coming of age stories. Sometimes we throw in something seasonal for fun. We host a deep dive bookclub discussion with interactive + thoughtful questions on Discord at the end of each month and author chats via Zoom when available. We hope you will consider joining us each month or pop in whenever you can.

For our 1st pick…

🌀The Storm We Made by Vanessa Chan:

A spellbinding, sweeping debut that features a Malayan mother who becomes an unlikely spy for the invading Japanese forces during WWII—with shocking consequences for her family, and her country. Spanning years of pain and triumph, told from the perspectives of four unforgettable characters, The Storm We Made is a dazzling saga about the horrors of war; the fraught relationships between the colonized and their oppressors, and the ambiguity of right and wrong when survival is at stake. This is a January @gmabookclub and you can find it as a @bookofthemonth add on from last month! @marysueruccibooks@simonandschuster@vanjchan

Next up…

🔥The Book of Fire by Christy Lefteri:

Gorgeously written, sweeping in scope and intimate in tone, The Book of Fire is a masterful work about the search for meaning in the wake of tragedy, as well as the universal ties that bind people together, and to the land that they call home. @randomhouse@lefterichristy
