A bit disappointed that this kit didn't include an author review, but still. I appreciated all the extra bits and bobs. That recipe looks fire, and I'm gonna try it! 👀

"Beautiful World, Where Are You" by Sally Rooney
Sally Rooney's "Beautiful World, Where Are You" is an introspective and richly layered novel that explores the complexities of relationships and the existential questions of modern life. Through the intertwined lives of Alice, Felix, Eileen, and Simon, Rooney delves into the intricacies of human connection, desire, and the search for meaning. Her sharp, nuanced writing captures the subtle tensions and profound emotions of her characters, making their struggles and triumphs deeply relatable. This novel is a thoughtful and compelling exploration of what it means to navigate love and friendship in a world that often feels overwhelming.

Sally Rooney books can be very deep and hard to read so this book club kit is perfect to go along. It gives you trigger warnings and resources to use based on the topics that are discussed. It also gives you q&as to help you understand more of the book. I love the recommendations on what to read next.

I love a book club guide even if I am just using it for myself. It helps me reflect on the reading and decipher my thoughts on the book. I really enjoyed Beautiful World, Where Are You and this book club guide allowed me to think back and gain a new perspective on the characters and the plot.

This is such a great Book Club Kit! It includes book club questions, a recipe that goes along with the book, and a list of book suggestions for later.

I appreciate the publisher and NetGalley for allowing me to read this book club kit in exchange for an honest review.

AHHHHHH!!! I love Sally Rooney and I started my book club about a year ago. The main reason I requested this book club kit is to see the type of questions to ask my book club, as well as possible next reads to recommend (which this guide included). I LOVED the added recipe to this kit, that was such a nice touch. I was very impressed by this guide and wish there were a few more for my book club to use. Unfortunately, my book club recently moved to Zoom, since a bunch of us moved cities but there are so many elements to this kit that are helpful to connect all readers. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

Thank you We Are Bookish and NetGalley for this kit. All opinions are my own.

I loved this book, and adore this book club kit. The interview with the publisher provided a really intriguing behind-the-scenes peek at the literary industry, the content warnings were sensitively written, and the questions in the discussion guide were evocative and a step beyond many "usual" book club questions. I really enjoyed reflecting on the story and characters and working through the questions in my own head. The bookmarks and recipes are fun, and the Sally Rooney trivia is a great addition (though I wish I had done better haha)

Thanks NetGalley and We Are Bookish for creating this great kit!

I was asked to review this book by NetGalley - I so love Sally Rooney and this book does not disapoint. we follow Alice, Felix, Eileen, and Simon through the ups and downs of life including their friendships and relationships with each other.
The author explores success and how someone funds hope on a world where it feels like there is no hope.
The author writes well and the reader is immersered in her story telling although I am a little late to the table - this will be a good read this summer for those who have not dipped their toes.

Fantastic kit for use in book club meetings. We struggle with discussing the book (we usually say a few worked about it and then start chatting about anything in general) and this will help us to stay on track.

I loved this book club kit! I think it was a great idea to include discussion questions as well as trivia. I love the designs of the bookmarks and the fruit crumble sounds amazing so I was so excited to see the recipe for it!
Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the book club kit.

Great book kit! Loved the details inside, I was pleasantly surprised that one of the books I wanted to read was recommended at the "What to Read Next" section.

I can't wait to try the recipe!

As always, I find the Book Club Kits offered by NetGalley to be extremely fun, and “Beautiful World, Where Are You,” did not disappoint! Starting off with the Q&A with the publisher… I loved this because it was different from typical author Q&A’s. I found each question and answer to be insightful, but entertaining. Additionally, I love the fun “extras” included in the book kits, such as: bookmarks, recipes, and recommendations on what to read next. I think the content included in this book club kit really elevates the reader and book club experience!

Love this kit for a book club. Sally Rooney has the most interesting characters with such rich and deep stories. This guide would make a book club and its discussion so interesting. Thanks for access to this book club kit. Can’t wait to use it and recommend.

Not only did this book club kit include discussion questions, but there was trivia, printable bookmarks, and a recipe for fruit crumble (I wish there was a picture with the recipe). I did not like that there were so many pages filled with other book advertisements, especially because they didn't seem related or relevant to the book (e.g., if you liked this book, then you'll like XYZ).
