32 Popular Fiction Books for Book Clubs

We have Book Club fever here at Half Price Books! We love these books that draw people together over coffee/wine/dinner to discuss character, plot, themes, and symbolism, and thought it was time to suggest some popular titles. As always, we turned to our 3,000 bibliomaniacs for their opinion on the most-asked-for contemporary* Book Club recommendations, and here's what they reported back.
*Note that this list focuses on recent(ish) fiction
