Yesterday my group, Booklovers Never Go To Bed Alone - Literary Adventures and I got together over coffee for a Book Chat and discussed what was the best book we each had read in 2014. It was a great discussion and I came away with a great list of books to check into. Some of them I have read and agree they were among my favorite books, some of them I'd heard of but not had a chance to read and some are totally new to me and sound very intriguing. Knowing that most booklovers are always looking for good book recommendations, I thought I'd share this list with you.
Bad Feminist by Roxanne Gay
Caleb's Crossing by Geraldine Brooks
The Dinner by Herman Koch
East of Eden by John Steinbeck
Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng
Hawaii by James Michener
The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom
Living Water by Obery Hendricks
A Perfect Red by Amy Butler Greenfield
We also went on to discuss what we are currently reading and some other book recommendations came up. Those titles are listed here:
