A book review is a description of the book including your opinions, interpretations, ideas, and critiques.
A book summary, sometimes called a synopsis, it recaps all the main ideas and does not include outside commentary.
A book club is a reading group who read and talk about books based on a topic or an agreed-upon reading list.
The book club can meet monthly. That will give members enough time to read the book, think about key ideas, and prepare for the meeting.
