Top 10 Tuesday: Book Club Books

top 10 tuesday graphic 3

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

I am a huge fan of book clubs. A group of people coming together to read and discuss a novel? Sign me up. None of my close friends share my love of reading (sigh) and so that’s why I’ve joined the online community of book-lovers, to share my bookish thoughts and all the bottled-up feels. 😉

Without further ado, these are the books I’d love to read with my imaginary/fictional book club.


1. Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling

2. Just Listen by Sarah Dessen

3. The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin

4. And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie – WHODUNNIT?

5. Divergent by Veronica Roth

Books 1-5 feature powerful themes. These themes would make for really great discussions.


6. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

7. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See

8. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

9. The Help by Kathryn Stockett

10. Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen

Books 6-10 pull at the heart-strings. *Disclaimer: if you do not have a friend to discuss these books with, you might possibly be emotionally damaged for life.

(My mother is very familiar with these novels, though she’s never read them, because I gave her blow-by-blow accounts through my tears.)


Have you read these novels? Would you like to become a member of my imaginary book club? I’ll probably let you join.

      You are an official member of my book club, Danica. 🙂 I’ll definitely check out your TTT – don’t apologize for getting ahead! You’re the trendsetter for next week’s topic. Thanks for commenting!

    I LOL’d at the last part of this post because 1. I don’t have any friends that read so yes, I’m emotionally damaged from having all of these feels tearing up my insides, and 2. my mom is the one poor soul that ever hears about these said feels, and is probably worried for my sanity. Glad I’m not the only person who does this! I’ll join your imaginary book club 🙂

      Welcome to the club! I’m so glad you can relate. My mother is concerned for both my sanity AND hers – sometimes I move her to tears, and then we’re both sobbing about fictional characters! And she sometimes mentions these books as if she’s actually read them, and then I’ll remind her that it was actually just me. 😉 I’ll be your new book-loving friend, as we both seem to be sorely lacking in this category. Thanks for commenting, Mariah!
