Book Club Questions for BULLET

posted in: Various Musings | 0

Some readers love being able to talk about books but sometimes don’t know where to start or how to share what they’re thinking with others. That’s why some publishers will list questions at the back of an author’s book, but I decided to share these kind of questions on my blog. My plan is to eventually have questions for all of my books, so stay tuned.

So I haven’t done this for a long time here on my website, but I figured I was overdue. My Facebook group, Jade’s Bullet Babes, decided to do monthly group readings, and I figured I’d supply a few questions to get them started! But then I decided to publish them on my blog as well so that if you have a book club you belong to, you can use these questions to get the discussion started.

Bullet is one of my most discussed books already, so you might be thinking that it’s not necessary to give you questions…but they’re here anyway! I didn’t do too many, but these seemed to be pretty good points of discussion in my group. 🙂 But before we go any further, let me first give you…

 The blurb:

What if you discover the man you want is toxic?

 

She tasted a little bit of heaven with him, and now they’ve gone through hell and back, but can their relationship take anymore?

 

Valerie Quinn is a naïve college freshman when she meets on-the-rise rock star Ethan Richards. He’s an idealistic, handsome, reckless young man, but he’s captured her heart. She doesn’t give up on him and eventually his walls crumble down. By the time Valerie has given herself to him completely, she discovers he’s damaged and may be beyond help. Can she save Ethan and their relationship before he implodes, or will he self-destruct and take her with him?

Oh, and if you haven’t read the book, you might not want to read the questions for fear of spoilers!  But here they are.

The questions:

  • Many readers have noted that one of the themes of Bullet is that of letting go. What characters or situations best represent that concept and how does learning to let go contribute to their growth? Conversely, how does not letting go affect other characters (for example, Ethan struggles with letting go of the negative emotions he feels for his father)?
  • Some readers have complained about the way the story is told with the past and present intermingled. If the story had been told in a completely linear fashion, how would that have changed your experience with the novel and your expectations? Would the twist at the end have been as big a surprise? What would the story lose if it were told in a different way?
  • Some readers have stated that the beginning section (college) of the book lasted too long and tended to drag. Did you feel that way? If so, what particular parts did you find unnecessary? If you felt that nothing should be taken away, how did the beginning affect the rest of the story? What did it do for you as a reader?
  • Out of all the characters in the Bullet universe, which one(s) would you feel closest to, like a friend? Which ones would you avoid?
  • Does any character in the book remind you of yourself?
  • If you could change the ending, what would you do differently?
  • If you could ask Jade one question about this book, what would it be?

I have to tell you, I enjoyed the heck out of reading the responses!  If you haven’t already, I hope you enjoy reading the book.  It is currently free online at all vendors.  You can find a listing of them here.
