Book Club Favorites

Book Club Favorites - Find a Book You Will Love!



Our Book Club reads between 8 and 12 books every year, and has been meeting for the past 5 years.


At the end of each year we hold a Christmas Book Club and hold our very own mini oscars party. We award several awards but the most prestigious of all the awards, is best book.

Below you will find the winners of our best book for each of the years we have been together as a book club.

Usually the book wins  for being particularly memorable - after all it has to stand out from the other 8-11 books it is competing against. It usually has a great story and has lead to an interesting discussion.


So here is our list of absolute favorites:




A really great story and a chance to see Nazi Germany from a very different view point. A heart warming yet harrowing tale


The Book Thief

and for a full overview of the story: The Book Club Thief Summary



Hardly an uplifting topic - the great depression, but honestly, don't let that put you off - a wonderful story with descriptive writing


The Grapes Of Wrath

For a summary of the story, go to Grapes of Wrath Synopsis


Our book club is not usually into SCI FI Books but when this one came along, we made an exception - and how glad we were.This book makes you appreciate all the things we take for granted.


The Day Of The Triffids





Steinbeck seems to be a book club favorite. This book however is less depressing than Grapes of Wrath. The plot is really interesting, as are the well developed characters.


John Steinbeck East of Eden

For Questions go to

East of Eden Steinbeck



A thrilling book that will have you questioning - Nature or Nurture?

With so many awful teenagers going on gun rampages, killing innocent school kids, you'll always be recalling this book. It will also  give you a healthy debate - Can you really blame the parents?


We Need To Talk About Kevin

Voted Best Book for 2013 by our group, this is a tender story about friendship of two couples over a life time.


Absolutely beautifully written with some moving scenes and a look at friendships over time


Crossing to Safety
