Top Ten Tuesday: I'd Love to Read with my Book Club

hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

I recently started a bookclub and we're reading our third book.  This is the perfect way to think about books for future months!

Some Memoirs
1. The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls - One dysfunctional family should make for an interesting memoir of redemption, love and loyalty.  This one could be a good discussion.

2. Devil in the White City by Erik Larson - This isn't exactly a memoir but it is a true story that sounds incredibly interesting.  It would definitely spark a good discussion with the right group of people.


Some Graphics Novels
3. The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick - After the movie, I realized that I needed to read this book, but I never got around to it.  Maybe with a book club mandate this would help things.  Also, I'd love to hear what other people think of this book.

4. Saga by Brian K. Vaughan - Recently, I had several people tell me that this was the graphic novel to start and so I think it would be cool to have the book club start this new adventure together.


Some Young Adult
5. Okay For Now by Gary D. Schmidt - Schmidt has a unique writing style that tends shed light on heavy topics in a way that could lead to some really good discussion.  I'm interested in reading this one.

6. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline - The concept of this book looks really good, and I'm interested in knowing what other people think about this book as well.


Some Fiction
7. Atonement by Ian McEwan - I've been dying to see this movie, but I won't do it until I read the book.  Maybe we could make this one a book/movie feature.

8. Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan - I think this book would bring some interesting discussion.  Plus, it's always more fun when you read a book with other people.  And I really want to read this book.


Some Classics
9. Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier - This book seems like it would be a great discussion book, plus my friend Leigh has been telling me to read this one for years.

10. A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess - This is one of those classics that seem to be waiting for a group of people to discuss it and I want my book club to be one of those groups.

  4. I really want to get my mitts on Saga. Not many people think of using Graphic Novels for a book club. That one looks really interesting.

    1. There's so much to explore in a Graphic Novel, I say why not use it as a book club book! :)

  5. I've been curious about Ready Player One. It seems like it's one I should have read by now. Also Okay for Now does sound like it would be good for starting discussions. Thanks for stopping by my list :)
