First Book in Book Club (August Posting Challenge)

I listen to the Table of (Mal)Contents podcast most weeks. Honestly, I don't love it, but they are readers and authors with some similar reading interests, and they give good recommendations.

Recently they talked about what book they would start a book club with. The book has to be something that they read in the last year.

I would start a book club with

  • The Case of the Man Who Died Laughing by Tarquin Hall--A mystery book club would be fun. And this is just a great series with a great main character.
  • Boom Town by Sam Anderson--This book combines the history of Oklahoma City with stories about one season in OKC Thunder basketball. Laugh out loud funny at times and beautiful and thought-provoking at others. Would be great for a creative non-fiction or random non-fiction book club.
  • Bad Blood by John Carreyrou--The story of the fall of Theranos. I remember reading about the company when it was doing "ground-breaking" deals. This is amazing and riviting. Maybe for the random non-fiction book club.
