BookaDay - Day 11

The Help - Kathryn Stockett 11/22/63 - Stephen King Goodnight, Beautiful - Dorothy Koomson

Best books for book group discussion

 

The Help - Kathryn Stockett  - race, class, personal agency, white-savior complex, who gets to tell whose stories?  Plus bad-ass Minnie.

 

11/22/63 - Stephen King - Time travel and changing a past event to "make things better" in he future.  All wrapped up in great Stephen King storytelling.

 

Goodnight, Beautiful - Dorothy Koomson - A woman becomes the surrogate of her best friend (a guy that she is secretly in love with) and his wife.  Only they back out well into the pregnancy.  All kinds of feels in this one. Guaranteed to engender discussions full of righteous anger by some, but measured contemplation by others.
