Book Club: What’s Next?



I hope everyone enjoyed our first Book Club on Bossypants! I had lovely time talking with all of you during the Live Book Chat and am already looking forward to our next online meet up…

I haven’t made a decision yet as to what our next book will be. There’s a lot of things I want to read right now, so it’s difficult to pick just one! Needless to say, I have been looking through all of your recommendations in the Forum and have a pretty good idea of what the next book will be…

Before I announce the next book, tell me what you’re reading right now in the comments below.

Also, what book would you like to read for our next Book Club?

I’ll announce the next book on Monday, August 22nd.

    I just finished reading a book. It’s called Lover of Loser by a Dutch writer, Carry Slee.


  • Katelyn Merrill

    I just finished A Tree Grows In Brooklyn by Betty Smith

    I also LOVE Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford. Its such a hopeful novel!

  • Dorothy Angle

    Since both are coming out as movies soon, I would recommend either The Help or One Day. Both are great!

  • Lucie Bartlett

    One Day by David Nicholls. It is a beautifully written modern story of a very contemporary friendship and will have you laughing and crying in equal measure. Plus, the movie is out soon and you MUST read it before you see it!


  • Amanda Meyrick

    I just downloaded “”Sisterhood Everlasting”” It’s the 5th book from the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series. I LOVED the other 4 books, so I know I am going to love this. Maybe the other readers will too!!!

  • Rayharna Wright

    Nothing Last Forever by Sidney Sheldon

  • Lucie Bartlett

    Great minds Dorothy! 😉 x

  • Xo_EyeBee

    I’m currently reading 19 Minutes by Jodi Piccoult. Nicky Sparks and Jodi never let me down! They are 2 of my absolute favs :-)

  • Katherine R Behring

    Two new books are coming out that both seem like they could be really good. 1) Soiel Moon Frye’s “”Happy Chaos”” or 2) Mindy Kaling’s “”Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?””

  • Shannon Maule

    I just read The Happiness Project & just started The Help. I also would love to read One Day because the movie is coming out. Sounds like a lot of us are thinking the same things :) Can’t wait!

  • Judit Farkas

    I’m reading Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.

  • Kellie Norton

    I’ve been reading The Help.. it’s such a great read!! It’s also being made into a movie which is why I wanted to read it. It also takes place in Mississippi where I live now :) I’m excited for the next book, I’m sure it’s going to be a great one!

  • Kayla Brennan

    I’m reading Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen

  • Alysia Jones

    I think we should read a book by Sophie Kinsella or Cathy Kelly, because these books are really interesting and funny. I never used to read books until I started reading the shopahloic series of books written by sophie kinsella, they are so good. I hope this has helped pick which book we are going to read next :) xxx

  • Ally Jackson

    I’m reading “”the help”” and it is so great! I am also starting thirteen reasons why by jay asher!

  • Samantha Delaney

    I just finished “”She’s Come Undone”” by Wally Lamb. I’ve started “”Breakfast at Tiffanys”” by Truman Capote and I also have “”Things Fall Apart”” by Chinua Achebe.

    I may also suggest :

    “”The Good Earth””

    “”The Namesake””

    “”A Thousand Splendid Suns””


    “”Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood””

    “”Twenties Girl””

    I’m a library tech, so books are my life right now.

  • Maria Padilla

    I would have to suggest The Help. :)

  • Sonia Halge-Dang

    Nefertiti by Michelle Moran…shes also written The Heretic Queen and Cleopatra’s Daughter. Reading Cleopatra’s Daughter at the moment. It’s one of those ones that you can’t put down

  • Iris Johnson

    With its impending release in Theaters, I must recommend “”One Day!”” One of the best books I have ever read and I would read it over and over again!

  • Chelsea Adam

    I’m reading “”Last Night at the Lobster”” by Stewart O’Nan, then finishing “”Water for Elephants”” and onto “”The Help.””

  • Marine Boussage

    I’m reading “”Breakfast at Tiffany’s”” by Truman Capote. I’ve been reading “”If I stay”” by Gayle Forman and I really like this book.

  • Valera Ved

    I’m reading “”Listen to your body again and again”” by Lise Bourbeau

  • Cheryl Lewis

    I suggest: “”The Dirty Girls Social Club””, “”The Help””, “”The Namesake”” or “”Something Borrowed””

  • Jessica C.

    What about The Help by Kathryn Stockett? The book inspired Emma Stone’s new movie and it looks funny and inspiring.

  • Christina Harris

    “”Atlas Shrugged”” by Ayn Rand is amazing. Really well written, lots of fantastic character developments, practically no physical descriptions of characters. One of my favorite books!

  • Lara Parker

    THE HUNGER GAMES!!!!!!! Then, In March, you can all go see the movie. It’s a win-win. Plus it’s an awesome series. CHEERS

  • Melissa Batchelor

    I am reading “”The Red Tent””. An amazing read:)

  • Sara-Elizabeth Heller

    Ahead of the film version, I just finished re-reading One Day by David Nicholls. It’s an amazing book and one that a lot of people seem to read really quickly.

    Also good is anything by Nick Hornby or Madeleine Wickham (Sophie Kinsella’s real name).

  • Ella Adelt

    Close Your Eyes – Amanda Eyre Ward

  • Jessica Kutok

    The Help was absolutely amazing.

    It’s highly recommended.

    You can actually read my review on it here:

  • Sarah Davison

    I think The Room’ by Emma Donoghue would be a really good read for your book club. It’s a heart wrenching story about a woman and her child who have been held in captivity by a man; the story of their life in captivity and their eventual release. The story is amazing and is a really good choice for book clubs. In fact it was the TV book club 2011 winner. Hope you consider it!

  • Kylea Zmoos

    there are so many good books that people have mention.

    I would have to say “”the Help””- just started “”Sisterhood Everlasting””-page turner if you liked the teen series. “”The Hunger Games series”” seriously so good, couldnt stop reading. “”Water for Elephants”” was really good as well. {i guess i have a think for books that are turned into movies : ) }

  • Shannon Rourke

    I agree the post for “”One Day””. It tugs at every emotion- love it!

  • Juicy

    “”One Day”” by David Nicholls…. i know the movie for it coming out soon but this was really one of the best books I’ve ever read. It’ll have you laughing out loud one moment then crying the next.

  • cheryl denise

    secrets of a model dorm – fun and sassy read! :)“”>a peek of chic

  • Marieke K. Diest van

    What about To Kill a Mockingbird from Harper Lee.

  • Megan Doddington

    thirteen reasons why by Jay Asher, i haven’t read it but no someone who has and said it’s amazing!

  • MJS

    The Secret Life of Bees.

  • Jill Caffie

    I have started to read “”unbearable Lightness”” by Portia De Rossi.

  • Edna Hernandez

    Upon a very animated recommendation, This Is Not the Story You Think It Is‘ by Laura Munson, is next on my list

  • Kristin Eriksen

    “”The Catcher In The Rye”” by J.D. Salinger.

  • Elizabeth Kennelly

    The Help by Kathryn Stockett – I recently started reading this and it is quickly proving to be both entertaining and heartfelt. I’m having a hard time putting it down!

  • Jenny Sweeney

    I am currently reading “”Open House”” by a UK author called “”Jill Mansell”” She is my favourite author and I would recommend her books to anybody. You can really relate to all her characters and whichever book I am reading I never want it to end – they are so hard to put down! She has written dozens of bestsellers within the UK and they are aimed at all age groups (my nan borrows them of me when Im finished and she loves them!) She is based in Bristol (southwest of the UK) and bases most of her books around the surrounding Cotswold countryside villages which make for very idylic settings. I think her style of writing would appeal to a lot of international readers as well as UK based.

  • Melissa Panici

    Actually right now I am finishing up Bossy Pants because I was trying to catch up and I’m almost done! (too bad I missed the book chat:() Can’t wait to start the next one!! I will have to think longer about what book to suggest next!:)

  • MBP

    Little Bee by Chris Cleave. It’s about a Nigerian refugee girl. It’s a dark story at times, but I’m halfway through and it thoroughly enjoy it. It even has a reading group guide inside!

    Enjoy whatever you choose!

  • Donnalynn Vallellanes

    The Dragonfly Prophecy by Jacquelyn Russo… Great book, I can’t put it down!!

  • Meg M.

    I would have to say either, “”One Day”” by David Nicholls which you won’t be able to put down, or “”Sisterhood Everlasting”” which is another phenomenal read written by the author Ann Brashares.

  • pjanks

    Sarah’s Key

  • Lisa Osgood

    Water for Elephants is a great book. Another amazing book is Room by Emma Donoghue.

    I would also have to throw in the suggestion of Someday This Pain Will Be Useful To You by Peter Cameron. Its a great book for kids going to high school, or young adults going onto college/career plans. Every one could relate at this time of the year!

  • morgan salerno

    Vixen by Jillian Larkin !! Especially since you said you would want to live in the 1920’s :) Great story, intresting characters, and lots of twists and turns that keep the story intresting :) Best part it’s a series although the next book hasn’t come out yet. :)

    Heres the youtube link to the video for the book :)

Therse one that really struck me. A mom interviews the killer of her son & they become close. SO many different storys & life lessons in this one book. Look it up, i am 100% sure ALL your readers will love this.

    XOXO Kendall<3

  • Karine Hankinson

    I just finished The Help, it was one of those books that you just cannot put down. It makes you think about the dynamics of society and the relationships we form with one another. I can’t say enough good things about this book.

  • Izabella Emerick

    Eat Pray Love <3

  • Lauren Asher

    I recommend Katie Lee’s Groundswell. It’s the perfect mix of romance, glamour, and girl power. I couldn’t put it down! Now I’m dying to take a surfing lesson. I think it would be great for the book club. Thanks!

  • Care

    Katie Lee’s Groundswell is the perfect beach/summer read, so it would make for a timely choice. I read it in one sitting while watching the sun set on the Santa Monic Pier. It is perfect for women who dream of living in NYC. A must read.

  • Enchanted Glamour

    I’m currently reading “”The Time Travellers Wife””. I can’t wait for Nicholas Sparks’ new novel though! It comes out in October :)

    The Time Travellers Wife is an amazing book, I read it before I watched the film.

    My next read is Chocolat…apparently its better than the film

  • Carine Klein

    The color of water by James McBride

  • Deidre Cherry

    I definitely recommend The Help. It is definitely one of the best books I’ve read this year! I also recommend, if you haven’t read it already is Something Borrowed and Something Blue. Great summer reads! I am currently reading The Shack which everyone has said is very powerful and moving. thanks, Happy Reading to all!

  • Bella Kingsley

    The Bell Jar

  • Brittney Gonsalves

    An oldie, but goodie, The Perks of Being a Wallflower. I read it as a high school english assignment and I could not put it down! One of my favorites, as well is Invisible Monsters, by Chuck Palahniuk. Although it does take a special kind of reader to enjoy his books. Eat, Pray, Love is also an awesome book.

  • Zara DeGroot

    I think we should read “”The Help”” by Kathryn Stockett. I have already read it, but it is something I will read over & over. The movie comes out tomorrow, also!

    A Visit from the Goon Squad!

  • Larissa Wilhelm

    I’m reading the The Wild Rose by Jennifer Donnely. I read the other 2 books to this series and I highly recommend them! I would like to read The Help by Kathryn Stockett as well.

  • Samantha Franklin

    I’m reading The Planet Walker by John Francis and it really is an amazing book and the title is self explainatory.

  • Lauren Rundio

    After You’d Gone. About a misfit girl name Alice who falls into a coma. Throughout the book you’re never quite sure if she caused the coma herself by a suicide attempt or not. The ook follows her life up until her coma and tells the story of how her parents and grandparents met. As well as how Alice meets her current love. I’m not finished but I would recommend it thus far.

  • Kayla Queen

    So many people have already said this, but “”The Help”” is one of my new favorite books. It is inspiring and heartbreaking and such a great read. Even if this doesn’t get chosen for the Book Club, definitely read it anyway. It’s so great!

  • Kayla Ann Brock

    Catcher in the Rye is a classic novel from 1952, and it’s amazing, with so much laugh out loud humor, and it really makes you think about how simple the 50’s really were.

  • Isra Khuja

    The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks! Such a nice book, I loved it. :)

  • Sung-Yeh Nordquist

    Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls

  • Rosie Dillon

    A Dog’s Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron. I have never read anything like this book. Out of everything, It’s my new favorite! It’s written and put together so well and the story line is a definate tear jerker but at times cracks you up. :)

  • Tara Shannon

    “”The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks”” by Rebecca Skloot. It’s relatively new, thought-provoking and not too complex, but also not a dumb beach read.

  • Carson K.

    Any of the internet girls series by Lauren Myracle.. she is my favorite author!!!! Also, Voss is an amazing book filled with action and laughs!

  • jennyfer jurado

    “”Little Women”” by Louisa May Alcott, its a classic!

  • Jennifer Burchette

    o I agree with The Help!

  • Olivia Mathieu

    The Help, sounds really good!

  • Apple

    The SisterHood of the Travelling Pants, or The Three Willows (both by Ann Brashares).

  • Brittany Snow

    I think the next book should be something that’s more common/older so that people don’t feel pressured to go out and buy a new book for this discussion. What about Pride and Prejudice? Lolita?

  • Angel LaMae

    The Help …. I’m over halfway through & I highly recommend it!! :)

  • V

    Hey Lauren! I just finished reading a book called Discovering Grace by David Temple. It is an inspiring novel about a family coping with the accidental death of a child. Ultimately it is a story about forgiveness and I think it would make a great pick for your next book club!

  • Andry Paez

  • Mia Carter

    I’m finally reading Jane Eyre – meant to for years but never got around to doing it – and I absolutely love it. It’s one of those books I savor so much that I don’t want to rush through it and I’m reading it as slowly as possible so that it lasts. I love Jane’s character, love the writing style and especially love the gothic elements in the book.

  • Provocative Manners

    We just came out with our first book!
    Provocative Manners: The Sauce of Life. So excited to be on this journey as a new author! Love all your books, Lauren!
