Each week, The Broke and Bookish host a Top Ten Tuesday based on a certain bookish topic. Other bloggers are able to participate and post their own top ten list based on the topic.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is a Ten Books I’d Love to Read With My Book Club (If I Had A Book Club). I sadly don’t have a book club (people at my college sadly stay far, far, far away from books), but for this Top Ten Tuesday, I pretended to have a book club for a second or two to do this topic.
So here’s my list in no particular order:
2. If I Lie by Corrine Jackson: If I Lie will spark tons of deep conversations and probably inspire an entire book club to tears. I remember recommending (-ahem- forcing) my sister to read If I Lie, warning that hey, you will cry (she didn’t believe me) and ended up watching her trying to hide her tears from me. This book will stay with you for a long time.
3. Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry: Pushing the Limits will inspire so much talking: Noah’s hardships, Echo’s physical and mental scars, the friendships, and let’s not forget to mention, the endless tears the book caused. Hell, every time I read this one particular part of the book, I still cry.
4. What’s Left of Me by Kat Zhang: I feel like What’s Left of Me will inspire a lot of talking. What will it be like to have two souls living in one body in our society today? That question alone will lead to hours of talking and discussion.
5. Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson: First of all, I FREAKING LOVE THIS BOOK. I will probably say that to my non-existent book club and then proceed to force EVERYONE in it to read it. I can talk about Since You’ve Been Gone for hours: Emily, Frank Porter, and all the friendships.
7. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas: The book club can talk about how epic Throne of Glass is because let’s face it, how is it not epic? I also expect arguments over who has Chaol as a book boyfriend and who has Dorian as a book boyfriend and whether or not people want to share.
9. Stolen by Lucy Christopher: This book is probably my number one most recommended book club book. The ending just killed me and I’m pretty sure the ending will also kill everyone else in the book club too. It will spark years of discussion – I read Stolen two years ago and I’m still thinking about it.
10. Identical by Ellen Hopkins: Identical is probably my number two most recommended book club book. The plot twist in Identical probably scarred me for life; I’m still reeling from that twist. Someone read Identical already so I can moan over it with you!
And now, I want to know, what are your top ten books you’ll love to read with your book club, if you have one?
