Noteworthy Books of 2017

The best of the best lists have come in…

…and we’ve compiled them here for you! There’s no shortage of “best of” lists in fiction, nonfiction, history, mystery, cooking, and more. The Top 50, Dazzling Dozen, Notable 100. Lists are everywhere. And with so many books from 2017, it would take all of 2018 to catch up.

At Reading Group Choices, we’ve done a bit of work for you. Below are ten titles we recommended this year that also appeared on another (or two, or many!) top lists. Some have already received attention, while others may have more attention yet to come.

RGC’s Interview with Megan Stielstra

Megan Stielstra makes us want to hang out with her even more by answering our questions about fear, parenting, and her current projects

The December Spotlight Group Is…

December Spotlight:
Rio Grande and Cassino Book Clubs

The December Spotlight Groups are located in Brazil!

This month we’re featuring two book clubs, both in Brazil: the first group is in Rio Grande and meets every other Tuesday. The second is in Cassino (a beach 20 kilometers from the city) and meets every other Saturday.

These groups discuss the book they are reading, read a short story, and socialize a bit with tea, coffee and some snacks. They get together from March (end of their summer) to November (end of their spring) and the books are either chosen by the host or recommended by a member.

A Quiet Moment: Books That Inspire Introspection

Titles To Provoke Your Mind and Heart

While some books deliver us to worlds far from our own and delight us by completely removing us from our own lives, there are still others that invite readers to turn inward and become more present to the current moment. How can we be more observant of improbable moments of grace? What does it mean to believe in something so much you would die for it? How can we be more empathetic? These questions and more are examined by this following list of books with subjects that span aging,
