Loved the book synopses and recommendations in this magazine. I also loved that there were lots of discussion questions included. Overall a nice guide of many genres.

Ok, so I'm late to the game but HOW COOL ARE THESE BROCHURES?? Admittedly, even though I have high aspirations of starting a book club- I probably won't anytime soon. I even added some of these books to my TBR as I've never heard about them. (Go figure, the FB or IG algorithm buries books unless it's a popular author)

This is cool in general, I don't feel it necessarily HAS to be catered to a book club (but the popular conversation questions are a bonus!). I would like these monthly (or even weekly) to see what's new and upcoming. Yes, I know I can add my email to the never-ending mailing lists for an author or publisher but honestly- they are sooooo overrun with marketing and links/promo that it's nice just to have a document that is concise and to the point- Title, Author, ISBN, Publisher, Format, Hook (and a note that if you like {insert title here} or are a fan of {insert author(s)} here that this book may appeal to you), and then a brief description of the book. 
I would actually use these to add to my WL or my TBR or even to discuss with friends to see if it's on their radar and we could buddy-read. 

Suggestions to improve would be adding genre, publish date and page count as that will assist people being able to scan through and determine what book will be suited for their next book club read! 

Will definitely keep an eye out for these!! A++

These booklets are the PERFECT way to pick your next book club. Details on each book in various genres is a must have. As someone who has run several book clubs, this is the perfect addition to find out about upcoming releases.

Interesting idea, not very nice looking but does the job and could be an inspiration for booksellers, librarians or teachers wanting to create a similar guide with books of their choosing to discuss with clients, members or students.

Avid readers and less-passionate ones will find their next great book(s) to read in BOOK CLUB BROCHURE VOL 21 from Penguin Random House. Whatever your favorite type of story, you will find new treasures in the remarkable array of titles with thoughtful descriptions and questions for book clubs. As member of a long running book club eager to read and discuss books as well as our lives, I imagine that other readers and book club members will find their own gems in the guide, along with prompts and suggestions to elevate and deepen conversation. I received an advance reader copy of this book and the opinions expressed are my own, unbiased thoughts.

This is a fantastic Brochure. I will definitely lookout for more of them. Every page includes a book recommendation. Books are well-chosen and across all genres. Each book recommendation includes a description of the content, some advisory about the book for the reader, and a collection of discussion questions. This is a phenomenal tool for book choosing of a book club and also guiding through the discussions after reading the book for the next meeting.

Thank you to @netgalley and the publisher for this free eARC.
I find this publication really helpful for both the inspiration on the next reads and also nice question to get the discussion started. 
You don't necessarily need to be in a book club, you can use these templates for booktube or bookstagram. 
I would like to get this every month!!!

I was so pleased that I chose to download this book....so informational and readable and delightful...........if you are in multiple boo clubs, this will be a necessary addition to your bookshelf or coffee table or nightstand.  If you are only in one, tell your book friends to buy it and use its information  in your meeting discussion.   sherryk

This is a book club brochure aimed to prepare readers for book clubs. There are discussion questions provided as well as a summary of the book.

This is a great resource for use when planning 2022 book club books (or those still scheduling 2021 books).  There are multiple genres represented and thought-provoking questions for use during your meeting.  While we had already used some of the books, there are multiple options to use going forward.

I’ve been reading constantly for over 10 years. I’ve spent a lot of time trying to find a good books. So this was a goldmine. This volume was very helpful.  It’s a super short summary of each book, compared with like minded authors and a few questions to help decide whether you want it for a book club. 
A great way to discover new books. 
Thanks Penguin Random House Library Resources via Netgalley.

So many books I can't wait to read coming out soon! Too many to even list... I'm looking forward to requesting the next seasonal one of these

I love these book club brochures. They’re so informative and give a great inside look about the relevant books.

This is quite a useful guide, especially for book groups, but pretty ephemeral and didn’t in my view amount to much. It offers some suggestions of what to read with a brief summary of the book and some pretty banal discussion questions and that’s about it. A brochure. This is no 21 but all the others are available for download on the Penguin Random House Library marketing site although as far as I could see this isn’t made explicit, which is a shame. All in all, a bit of a non-event.

A wonderful guide to help me find my next great read.  I loved the layout and book descriptions. I recommend serious readers to pick up this fiction brochure before choosing their next bookclub pick.

This is a great resource for book club leaders and people who are just looking to see what's new. Each book listed includes a brief summary, read-alikes, and discussion questions. There are also brief picks based on different genres and formats.

I think I was expecting something different. I was looking to start a book club or add to an existing one. Most of the books I have never even heard of, which in itself is fine, but these are supposed to be highlighted books for a club. I believe I read many different genres and authors. These books most in book club were not interested in. The ones well known, we already read or know much about. 

This was pure promotion only. 6 or 7 questions of exploration of the book were not much. 

I think more needs to be added. 

Thank You NetGalley for a copy of this Brochure.
