Summer beach reads usually mean light romances to me, but I thought it would be fun to mix things up this summer!

I’ve spotted our next book club pick time and time again during my Target runs and something about it just kept calling to me.

Since we haven’t done a YA book in a while, I thought it would be fun to make our July selection Caraval by Stephanie Garber.

    What is Caraval About?

    Check out the full book description for Caraval by Stephanie Garber here:

    “Scarlett has never left the tiny island where she and her beloved sister, Tella, live with their powerful, and cruel, father. Now Scarlett’s father has arranged a marriage for her, and Scarlett thinks her dreams of seeing Caraval, the far-away, once-a-year performance where the audience participates in the show, are over.

    But this year, Scarlett’s long-dreamt of invitation finally arrives. With the help of a mysterious sailor, Tella whisks Scarlett away to the show. Only, as soon as they arrive, Tella is kidnapped by Caraval’s mastermind organizer, Legend. It turns out that this season’s Caraval revolves around Tella, and whoever finds her first is the winner.

    Scarlett has been told that everything that happens during Caraval is only an elaborate performance. But she nevertheless becomes enmeshed in a game of love, heartbreak, and magic with the other players in the game. And whether Caraval is real or not, she must find Tella before the five nights of the game are over, a dangerous domino effect of consequences is set off, and her sister disappears forever.

    Welcome, welcome to Caraval . . . beware of getting swept too far away.”

    Caraval Book Club Questions

    I believe the best book club questions to spark a lively discussion in your group help readers make personal connections to the story.

    You can read about how to write the best book club questions on your own here, but hopefully these will get you started!

    Question 1:

    What did you think of this month’s pick? Would you have chosen it on your own?

    See the online discussion here.

    Question 2:

    Caraval is in development for a movie: What is the thing you are most looking forward to seeing on the big screen from this story?

    See the online discussion here.

    Question 3:

    The core of Caraval is the relationship between the sisters Scarlett & Tella.

    Did you feel their love was equally loyal or did one sister feel stronger ties than the other?

    See the online discussion here.

    Question 4:

    Scarlett is determined to marry the fiance she’s never met as a means to escape her father.

    Would you have stuck to that decision or abandoned the plan once you gained freedom on Julian’s ship?

    See the online discussion here.

    Question 5:

    I see similarities between the intrigue of Caraval and the popularity of today’s Escape Room challenges.

    Do you have an Escape Room business in your town? Have you been to it? Would you be interested in playing the game of Caraval?

    See the online discussion here.

    Question 6:

    Would you rather exchange 2 days of your life or answer any one question honestly?

    See the online discussion here.

    Question 7:

    Is Master Legend a villian?

    See the online discussion here.

    Question 8:

    What did you think of this month’s pick? Would you have chosen it on your own?

    See the online discussion here.

    Question 9:

    Stephanie Garber, the author of Caraval, has said that she was inspired by this song to write the book.

    Do you ever picture a certain song or type of music when reading a book? Do you think this one feels like the story we just finished reading?

    See the online discussion here.

    Question 10:

    The sequel to Caraval will potentially be told from Tella’s point of view. Do you find that intriguing or are you craving more from Scarlett’s point of view?

    See the online discussion here.

    Book Club Party Menu

    For the book club party menu, embrace the light and the dark of Caraval and bake a batch of my black and white cookies to serve with a fizzy rum drink spiked blood orange mojitos.

    You could also make my oh-so-easy and super rich and decadent chocolate flourless torte and drizzle it with bright red strawberry sauce.
