This is a meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. They tell us what to write our top ten list for, and we do! This week…
TOP TEN BOOKS I’D LIKE TO READ WITH MY BOOK CLUB (IF I HAD ONE)
I think I’d want mostly controversial books, so I could see what people think of them compared to me. So some of these I’ve read, but I’d re-read them just to discuss them. The best ones I can think of:
- We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. I found it decidedly average, but so many people liked it! What do you all see in it?
- Fallen by Lauren Kate. I DESPISED this, but lots of people love it
- The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown. I saw the movie and it was really confusing, so I think I need someone to help me through the book
- Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher. This one talks about such serious topics, I think I’d need to read it with other people just to say sane
- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Another book I’d need help getting through, with the way it’s written
- A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin. Or any of the series, but this is the one I’m up to. It’s so freaking massive, I’d like persuasion to carry on with it
- Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. Same with Pride and Prejudice, and to an extent Storm of Swords
- London Belongs To Me by Norman Collins. I didn’t manage to finish this, I’d like encouragement
- The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank. Seriously one of the most boring books I’ve ever suffered through. But it’s meant to be all inspirational and stuff, so maybe I was just too young at the time?
- Water For Elephants by Sara Gruen. Okay, I cheated a little with this one. I went on Goodreads listopia and found best book club books, and this was recommended. The movie was one of the best I’ve ever seen, I may as well read it with this fictional club!
And while we’re on the topic, if anyone wanted to read one of these with me, let me know! Or anything on my Goodreads to-be-read shelf.
