Reading Group Choices' Favorites




Readinggroupchoices.com just announced which books were voted the favorite books of 2014 by their reading group members. If you are looking for suggestions for your book club/reading group, why not go with books that are available in digital format? That way all of your book club members can take them out at the same time, and no one has to remember to return them. Try the Reading Group Choices top picks “The Paris Architect” and “The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry” for your next book club meeting.

Praise for The Paris Architect:

“How far would you go to help a stranger? What would you risk? Would you trade your life for another's in the name of what is right? Belfoure explores these questions and others in this debut novel set in Paris during the Nazi occupation. Heart, reluctant heroism, and art blend together in this spine-chilling page-turner.”
-Publishers Weekly

“A beautiful and elegant account of an ordinary man's unexpected and reluctant descent into heroism during the second world war."
-Malcolm Gladwell


Praise for The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry:

The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry has a little bit of mystery and a little bit of romance, but is at its core a love story: love of books, love of family, love of community. It is as enchanting a book as you will read this year.”

[A] sweet yet soulful tale of love, loss, the power of friendship—and books. Like sunshine on a breezy spring day, you won’t want it to end.”
