Burning: Book Club Questions

If you're looking to do a book club meeting using Burning as your book you're in luck! We have some question starters you can use. These try to be more book-specific than ones you may find on a general board. If you have suggestions on questions to add please send them to me on Twitter @CharityMaeWrits or DM me on Facebook or Instagram.

  1. Is this book similar or very different in the and tone to the first book? Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

  2. Why were the flashbacks important? Do you think they could have been skipped? Why or why not?

  3. Did this book change your opinion on Margorim? Why or why not?

  4. Why do you think Burning is the title? What is it in the story that is burning? Is that good or bad?

  5. We get to finally meet our true villain in this book. Who do you think it is? Heklis or Emmerick?

  6. Emmerick is a unique character. What do you think of him? Why is he important?

  7. The process of establishing a new government is always complicated. What did you think of the plans and goals they set in this process? Do you agree or disagree with their approach?

  8. Aleph provides a more innocent look at how everyday people are affected by the war. Why do you think he's key to the plot?

  9. In your opinion, should Cedrick and Elphacena try to legally adopt Aleph? Why or why not? Why do you think they haven't yet?

  10. The theme of family drama continues in this story. How does Elphacena's relationship with her family mirror or differ from Cedrick's?

  11. (Bonus) If you could as the author one question, what would it be? (And guess what, you can! Send me your questions on my Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
