Just realised that I have to choose the next book for my book club and I've got brain-block. We read a variety of fiction - nothing too heavy though. Any good, maybe unexpected, ideas?

Sarah Waters - The Paying Guests is amazing, but it's quite new so not sure if the paperback is out. If not, do another Sarah Waters wink

Do you want a paperback? There have been a lot of interesting new releases recently. I would recommend Nina Stibbe's book Man at the Helm as a nice book club read but doubt if it's out in paperback yet.

I also think We are all completely beside ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler would be an interesting one to discuss, though it's had a very mixed reception on here!

I recently read the Kate Atkinson novel- time after time? Or something similar i think. Highly recommend it.

Thanks all. I had already read lots of the suggestions so you were on the right lines. In the end I chose We are all completely beside ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler.
