Top Ten Tuesday is hosted at The Broke and the Bookish
This week’s topic: Ten Books I’d Love (for my Co-bloggers) to Read
With My Bookclub
If we’re here, on this site, spending untold hours nerding out over books, books, and more books, then it is safe to say that we do not have a book club, per se. We have a blog–a damn good blog. That is like a club. A secret club. We’re our own damn secret book club.
Anyways, so what books would we love to see our co-bloggers reading? Bekka and I share our top ten picks of books that we are going to force-feed our members with, because we love them.
1. The Greyfriar by Clay and Susan Griffith – READ THIS OMG I’M GOING TO START HOLDING PETS HOSTAGE SOON IF YOU DON’T READ THIS SERIES.
2. Midwinterblood by Marcus Sedgwick. Looking right at you, Kara. Like, directly into your soul. If Pixie hasn’t read it yet, then she’s next.
3. Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley. I suggest this because I love them, and I love this book, so I want to thrown them all into a blender and make a love shake.
4. The Martian by Andy Weir. This book is so much FUN. I can’t keep good things to myself! I have to share! Let me share the wonderful joy that is this book!
5. The Year of Shadows by Claire Legrand. *stares* How could I have not bought my co-bloggers a copy of this? I smell a possible read-along in the future…
3. The Program by Suzanne Young. This is such a polarizing book; I fell on the side of loving it. It’s a really, really depressing story and it raises some unsettling questions about mental health awareness and treatment.
4. 17 & Gone by Nova Ren Suma. I love books with endings that are open to interpretation. The ending of 17 & Gone has a great revelation at the end that makes you look at the events in the book in a whole different light.
5. Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas. This book has shocked nearly every reader. The story takes the reader on a roller coaster of highs and lows, you’re basically reeling the entire time, right up until the end. I want to watch with totally not evil glee as my co-bloggers go through the pain.
What books would YOU love to see us read? Do you have anything that you are just dying for us to review?
