Ten Books I'd Love to Read With My Book Club/ If I Had A Book Club

Top Ten Tuesdays is a weekly feature created at The Broke and The Bookish.

I mean, there's the one that I'm part of on Twitter (and that has been lovely so far), but I don't have a one in real life... I've never been able to find people with tastes similar enough to mine for something like that to work. Hence the slash in the title.

1. Nation by Terry Pratchett. I have nobody to talk to about this one, and I feel like it bares discussion. (I tried to explain it to one of my friends and she looked at me blankly and said "So everybody in the village dies? Sounds like your kind of book." Which is, of course, patently untrue- almost everyone in the village does die, but that isn't why I read it.)

2. The Raven Boys (and, actually, the rest of The Raven Cycle) by Maggie Stiefvater. I actually have one friend (not the same as above) who has read and liked it, but she isn't as intense as most of the online community.

3. All Our Yesterdays by . I was reading it at school and I think I bothered my roommate about it while I was reading it... she had no other option but to listen to me randomly say random things about the book. I think it would be something that would be interesting to discuss.

4. Sorrow's Knot by Erin Bow. This is one of those books that I really liked, and I feel like it would be great to talk about.

5.  A Mad, Wicked Folly by Sarah Biggs Waller. It just sort of feels like a book club book.

6.  Vessel by Sarah Beth Durst. I think this would be interesting to read with a group.

7. Nobody by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. I don't know why I like the concept, but I really enjoyed the concept.

8. Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson. Again, I feel like this series would be interesting to discuss, especially as things build up.

9. The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black. Possibly I am a Holly Black kick... there's this strange feeling of sort of almost... slow decay to it that I found interesting.

10. Seraphina by Rachel Hartman. It might be on my mind because I just read Shadow Scale, but I think this would be sort of fun to discuss.

Now I want to start a book club.


  1. I've heard a lot of good things about A Mad Wicked Folly. I desperately need to read Steelheart! I bought the sequel and have yet to read book one. It sounds awesome. I feel awful that I haven't read The Raven Boys yet. People are very intense about it, I'd like to see what the fuss is about. I love Maggie's other books. I've been meaning to read All Our Yesterdays for a while. Great list, they all seem like perfect book club picks.

    1. A Mad Wicked Folly was one of my favourite debuts of last year. Some people are very intense about The Raven Cycle, and I do feel that it is a great book, though possibly not for everyone. All Our Yesterdays I mainly remember for the ending (which I obviously won't spoil), I'll probably end up rereading it this year.
