I get so stressed when I have to make this decision, so I'm letting you do it for me.

It's my pick at book group tonight, which of these should I nominate?

Flowers for Algernon

Burial Rites

The Light Between the Oceans

Please don't add to my anguish by suggesting others. It's hard enough getting it down to three.

The Light Between Oceans. Great story. I loved

Can you say a little bit about each one, say you can't choose between them and let the group vote?

I don't know anything about Burial Rites, but either of the other two I would be keen to read.

I have only read The light between oceans out of those but enjoyed it.

Flowers for Algernon.. loads to talk about.
Haven't finishes the Light between.. just couldn't get into it but may try again.
The other one looks good but haven't read it.

I liked burial rights best out of those three. Hauntingly beautiful.

Flowers for Algernon is the only one I've read, so I vote that!

Light between oceans gave us lots to talk about so I would go for that(and it made me cry)

I've only read The Light Between Oceans, but I really enjoyed it (although the end made my cry).

Which one did you choose in the end?
I'm halfway through Burial Rites... it is a great read , I love it!

Oh, and I saw that it's going to be a movie with Jennifer Lawrence.
