The Goldfinch has been on my reading list for quite a while. Generally, I like to read or at least be informed about Pulitzer Prize winners and usually they are good picks for book club discussions. Although, I will say the last few I’ve read have been hard to read and I’ve taken a step back from the list in recent years. However, when I saw that The Goldfinch was being made into a major motion picture, I decided it was time to read it.

Here’s the deal about Hollywood that doesn’t always apply to acclaimed literary fiction–they (usually) produce movies with a good plot. Literary fiction doesn’t have to have much of a plot to still win awards. The writing and character development are more important.

So, I figured that The Goldfinch would be a good merger of quality writing, character development, and plot.

If your book club needs a good laugh or a feel good book, The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion is the book for you. From page one, I loved the narrator’s voice and couldn’t stop smiling. As someone who works in a business office during the day, I have met so many Don’s that I can’t count them. Too bad they weren’t as funny or redeemable.

This book really was a breath of fresh air to me. I’ll be interested to know if you felt the same. Even though it is a rom-com essentially, I had no trouble finding more than enough book club questions and a recipe (ummm, margaritas anyone?) to compliment the book.

If you loved The Rosie Project, you’ll be glad to know that there are two other books in the series–The Rosie Effect and, just recently released, The Rosie Result. Both promise hilarity. Sometimes reading a good-feel book is just what the doctor ordered.

The Rosie Project is also being made into a movie soon and I can’t wait to see it!

After reading When Calls the Heart by Janette Oke, I decided to revisit an old friend: Love Comes Softly. It’s another classic by Janette Oke. I read this book as a teenager and loved it. When Hallmark made a movie out of it, I was even happier. What can I say? I love a good, clean romance, especially a historical.

If your book club hasn’t read Love Comes Softly, I recommend it as a reprieve from the heavier options that book clubs often read, especially if your book club is open to inspirational titles. Below, I’ve created a recipe for coffee punch and book club questions to help facilitate your meeting. And, who doesn’t love coffee and ice cream?
