Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Think Would Make Great Book Club Picks

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
It would be awesome to be a part of a real life book club! I have so many books I would love to discuss with everyone! Here's my Top Ten!

1. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
Slash the whole TMI series. This book has caused a lot of debate and would be so fun to discuss with others. I was so mad at the end of this book I threw it at the wall! It would have made a wonderful discussion for a book club.

2. Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendra Blake
This book was so creepy and the love story between Anna and Cas was completely unique. I just had a lot to say about this book and would have loved to see what others had to say.

3. Atonement by Ian McEwan
This book was so sad and made me so mad! Some of the parts in this book were hard to stomach. Definitely would cause some great discussions.

4. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
A book about a girl who killed herself, who sent around 13 tapes to people in her life, telling them the part they played in her suicide. A huge tearjerker that is definitely going to have a huge impact on people. It would be great to discuss with people.

5. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
This book was awesome. So I want other people to enjoy the awesomeness that was this book. And talk about it with me. And fall in the with Dimitri with me.

6. Going Bovine by Libba Bray
This book was just so... confusing! And sad. It would be great to see what other people thought.

7. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkins
Do I even need to justify this? Trying to figure what was real and what was fake was enough to spin your head. Getting to discuss it with someone along the way would have awesome. And Noah. Noahhhhhh. Just. So. Amazing.

8. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins


9. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer
If you've read this book, you know why I picked this. It's about a young boy whose father died on 9/11. It's a really tough topic and it would be hard to talk about. Which is exactly why it would be great to discuss at a book club.

10. Still Missing by Chevy Stevens
This book takes place between a woman and her therapist after she escapes the man who kidnapped her. It was heart breaking and disturbing and I couldn't put it down.We read this in my online book club and all of us were just shell shocked. It was amazing.

Alright there's my top ten. What's yours?

My Top Ten...

People are getting some really great lists together for this week's TTT meme! Thirteen Reasons Why has been on a lot of people lists that I see, so now I feel like I need to read it yesterday.

And, of course The Hunger Games is much needed, and I really need to read Anna Dressed in Blood. That's the first book I plan on getting from the library as soon as I go back. Ugh! There are too many great books and I can't possibly read them all soon enough!

Thanks for visiting my blog today. Have a great one!

Great picks, I love your focus on YA lit! I would love to discuss Thirteen Reasons Why in a book club especially. I have to admit I recently tried to read Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close and had such a strong visceral reaction to it I couldn't finish. It was too much for me, but maybe especially because of this I agree that it would be great to discuss!

Giselle said...

Ooh great list I LOVED 13 Reasons Why! And thanks for recommending Still Missing! I had heard of it but never really looked into it. I definitely will not though because it really sounds like a book I'd love!!

Anna said...

Oooh I keep hearing about Anna Dress in Blood -- I really need to pick it up!

Just a Lil Lost said...

Great pick with Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close!! Atonement's also a fantastic read!

Thanks for stopping by :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I just finished Anna Dressed in Blood and I would agree that it would make a great book club book. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer almost made my list but I decided on Before I Fall instead.

Alyssa said...

I LOVE all of your YA picks! I am looking forward to reading Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, I hear it is very deep book. Thanks for stopping by!
