SLAV Online Book Club List – Thursday February 17 2022 – Romance Reads

Our thanks to those of you able to join us for today’s book club meeting to discuss Romance books. As always, so many of you had so many wonderful contributions to share with us, and it is very appreciated.

This was our first book club meeting for 2022, and we look forward to chatting with you again at our next Online Book Club discussion on Wednesday March 23 to discuss the topic:


School libraries are safe, inclusive spaces that support their communities needs. All readers deserve to see themselves in the books they read. What books contain interesting characters who are also are neurodivergent?

Disclaimer: The lists generated as a result of Book Club discussions are not, by any means, an exhaustive list of all titles or authors for each genre/category discussed. Nor will all titles be suitable for all libraries. We advise staff discretion when referencing these lists, to properly confirm individual title suitability for individual libraries, school and students needs. These are suggested titles only, shared by our members and inclusion on, or exclusion from, a list does not suggest SLAV endorsement or rejection of a title.
