Seeking book recommendations

My bookclub meets in a couple of weeks to select books for the coming year. This particular group gets a little competitive ~ at the August meeting we each give a pitch for the one or two titles we’d like to see on that year’s list.  Then we vote and a list is compiled.

We each try to pitch outstanding books because at the June meeting we then vote for our favourite book of that year.  The winner’s name and book title go into the illustrious ‘Bookclub Winners’ book.  It’s quite an honour. 😉

Past favourites have included A Good House (Bonnie Burnard), A Gentleman in Moscow (Amor Towles), Plainsong (Kent Haruf), The Hearts Invisible Furies (John Boyne) and A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (Betty Smith).

So, I’d like to pitch a winner. Any recommendations?  We’re a group of men and women. All genres are considered and they can be fiction or non-fiction. Thank you!
