So I'm supposed to make a book club announcement today, but I don't have a book picked. I was thinking it was a good time to do something more main stream / popular. Do you guys have any suggestions or ideas? I'm open for anything.

Here are a few that other people have given me:

The Dead Lands by Benjamin Percy
Gutshot: Stories by Amelia Gray
Get in Trouble by Kelly Link
The Martian by Andy Weir

Thanks everybody!

Oh man, I think One Kick and Ugly Girls would make great discussions. Nice!

I LOVED The Dead Lands. Big fan of AG. KL is great. CC I read the first few, haven't kept up, but she's good. I did enjoy UG by LH.

Tough call.

I'm a huge Ben Percy fan, so I guess that would be my pick.

I'm going with One Kick by Chelsea Cain.

I love her writing - the Gretchen and Archie books are the shit.
