#Discussions with Crossroads: 5 Book Club Questions to start with!

So you started a book club, you have some people, and you are almost done with your first book! Now what?  If your lucky you grabbed a book that has discussion questions in the back of it. But for most books that isnt the case and now you have to come up with questions on your own.  This situation is one that I know first hand.  It puts you on the spot to come up with with questions to chat about the book.  So here are some questions to help you out! 

According to Bustle The perfect book club is made up of three key things: a great reading selection, yummy snacks, and a lively discussion.  Book clubs are social creatures, its a great time to socialize, read books, and meet new friends.  They are a great way for those who love books to come together to chat it up and socialise.  They are the group you want to have an exciting talk over twists, characters, and more.  They are like that English class you took in school, only this time you choose the books to read. 

So how do you deal with members who are shy? Coming up with questions in general? And just making sure that you get to talk about the book at all?

1. What did you think about the book when you first started? 
When we do our reviews we always think about if the book hooked us right at the start or did it take a while to get into. This is a great opener question to a book club! 

2. Was the book plot driven or chracter driven? 
This is another great question to ask.  Some books have a great combo but for most of them its either the story or the characters.  

3. Favorite quotes?  Favortie chapters?
I love sharing quotes, passages, and chapter titles.  These are thing things that make us LOL, Angry Cry, and feel all the feels!  

4. Was anything unique?
So many things are done over and over.  How many times do we have to read that the smile didnt reach someone's eyes?  So was anything one of a kind or was it the same old same old? 

5. Did anyone grow thoughout the story? 
Characters coming into their own.  Did the story grow?
