Books » Our lists » 2021 book club picks

Twenty one titles to keep your book club humming in 2021.

Some books are solo endeavours – literary tomes best tackled alone (and all in good time). Others are flat-out too embarrassing to share with your book club buddies (we won’t tell anyone). And then there are books that are simply made to be ruminated upon, digested and shared (once a month with a select group of friends and virtual strangers). Here are twenty one titles calling out for their book-club homes.
