March Book Club – The Circle – Discussion

It’s video time! For this month’s Hot Key Book Club, we read THE CIRCLE Sara B. Elfgren and Mats Strandberg, translated from Swedish (more info here: and published in the UK by Hammer, part of Random House. And we unanimously agreed that it was awesome, as you’ll see in our video.

The Circle Cover

“The Circle is a story about group dynamics, identity, and finding one’s place in the world. Like all great books, it’s about how people handle the difficult task of becoming human beings, together with other human beings.”
John Ajvide Lindqvist, bestselling author of Let the Right One In

It is totally action packed, with six brilliantly drawn high school girls fighting against an ancient evil. Check out our round up video, and answer our two discussion questions:

– Have you read anything else in translation that is THIS GOOD? If so, I need to read it!
– I also want to know about how you think this compares with Buffy.
