Top Ten Tuesday- Book Club Books

Top Ten Tuesday is a really cool original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they post a new Top Ten List that bloggers join in on answering... and today (January 27th) I'm one of them :)

Today's Topic

Top Ten Books I'd Love To Read With My Book Club

I love my book club!!!  We're the Pittsburgh Chapter of the Forever Young Adult book clubs.  We do so many fun things that don't even involve books (and a lot that does), and I never dreamed a book club could be so awesome.

Books I haven't read but want us all to:
1.  In the Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters- I haven't read much historical fiction and I would like to read more.  Plus when we have read historical books in the past, it seemed to give us a lot to talk about.
2.  My Life After Now by Jessica Verdi- I mean it's a HEAVY subject.  Sounds like the perfect book club book.
3.  Noggin by John Corey Whaley- I like it when we read books with out-there plots.  It usually gives us an array of strong reactions.
4.  I Was Here by Gayle Forman- It's Gayle Forman.
5.  Dr. Bird's Advice for Sad Poets by Evan Roskos- This just screams book club book to me.

Books I already read, but want them to read so we can discuss:
6.  Any Courtney Summers book- Okay so I haven't read All the Rage (yet), but I would love if we could read and discuss ANY of Ms. Summers' books.
7.  Glory O'Brien's History of the Future by A.S. King- Like I said I like it when we read books with out-there, original storylines :)  Plus with this one there is A LOT to discuss.
8.  Brutal Youth by Anthony Breznican- Pittsburgh is the setting for this book, so what better for a Pittsburgh book club??  Also I really really liked it and think people might have very mixed reactions to it.
9.  Another Little Piece by Kate Karyus Quinn- I kind of want people to explain this one to me.
10.  Tease by Amanda Maciel- It's about a lot of heavy issues and I like that it showed bullying from the other side.  I think some people will hate the m/c and some will get her, and I just want to hear everyone's reactions.

Those are my book club books.... what books do you want to read w/ your club??

PS- any Pittsburgh peeps out there that wants to join our amazingly fun book club send me an email or look us up on Facebook- PGHFYA


  1. I Was Here sounds amazing! I'm so excited for that one :) I'm also curious about Courtney Summer's books. Great picks!

  2. Dr. Bird's Advice looks like an interesting book that couple bring interesting conversations. Noggin looks interesting too. I haven't read any of the books on your list but some of them look like my kind of books. Cool list!

  3. Noggin and Shadow of Blackbirds are great books and would be great for discussions. Tease is a great one for discussions too. great list.

  4. I'd like to read Tease just to see how I react to it. i've never read a book about bullying, I have no idea what I would feel reading it :/

  5. Your book club sounds awesome! Tease and All The Rage are fantastic books that would be great to read with a book club!
