There is no shortage of great book club meeting ideas! These are specifically to plan a successful meeting for your book club review night.
Once your book club has been together for a a certain amount of time (see book club review), it's fun to 'review' how things are going. And no, I don't mean with an actual test!!!
All you really need to plan a successful review meeting is your brain and some creative juices. Start thinking of ideas a few months before you decide to do this. You can allot 15-20 minutes of your regular club meetings for brainstorming together in the months prior to your book club review night.

In short, it's a planned meeting where you spend time reflecting on your book club. Now, let's stretch out that explanation...
We call it the 'book club review' because the purpose is to review where you've been as a reading group, and maybe talk a little about where you are going. It's a chance to celebrate your friendships born from a love of reading!
We suggest that you do this once a calendar year as it gives you the opportunity to look at a full book club cycle (or sometimes two!) as part of your review. The club review can be an extension of your regular meeting (it's fun to plan for a long get-together in December/holiday season!) or it can be a separate meeting where you don't discuss a specific book, but just get together for the purposes of the review night. It's really up to what your group prefers.
Once you have made these few decisions, you can choose from the ideas on this page for what to do during the meeting. Or, you can come up with your own creative way to celebrate your book club!
