Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week you compile a list of ten books which coincide with that week's theme. You can find everything you need to know about joining in here!
This week's theme is 'Ten Books I'd Love To Read With My Book Club/If I Had A Book Club'. Sadly, I don't have a book club; my local library has one that meets each month, but it's at 2:00 on a Wednesday and I work 9-5 Monday-Friday. Oh well!
I was thinking of theming this post, but instead I decided to go for the ten books I'd most love to talk about with other people. I've decided to split my list into books I'd love to reread, and books I haven't read yet. So, without further ado, here are my top ten!
Books I'd Reread
Noughts & Crosses by Malorie Blackman: One of my all time favourite books. There are so many things in this book to discuss, and I'd love to hear what other people had to say about it.
Carmilla by J. Sheridan Le Fanu: Again, this is another favourite and another book in which there's a lot to talk about. This classic is just fascinating.
Feed by Mira Grant: Haha, I think we should just assume that this book is going to pop up on the majority of my TTT posts from now on. Honestly the main reason I'd want to read this for a book club is to make even more people read it because it's amazing and I love it.
The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins: Probably my favourite classic. There. I said it. Again, there's a lot to talk about in this novel. It's quite dense, yes, but if you stick with it it's so worth it.
American Gods by Neil Gaiman: I just think this book would be a lot of fun to read with other people, and, again, there's a lot to talk about here!
Books I'd Read for the First Time
Among Others by Jo Walton: I've heard a lot of wonderful things about this book, and something about it makes me think it'd be a great book club read.
The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood: I need to read this book (I promise I'll get to it this year, Mallory!) and I might read it sooner if I had to read it for a book club. Plus I think there'd be a lot to discuss.
The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón: I think a book about books would be a great choice for a reading group, and I've heard brilliant things about this book! Plus I like book clubs that include books that were not originally written in English.
Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov: I feel like this is a classic I have to read before I die, but I'm not all that interested by it. The premise doesn't put me off (I know that probably sounds weird, but I'm more frightened by supernatural creatures than I am by creepy people) although I'm sure reading it would certainly make me uncomfortable, and I think it'd be a really interesting book to discuss with other people.
Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke: This book is such a beast. My copy's like a brick, I swear to God it should be one of the murder weapons in Cluedo. A book's size usually doesn't put me off, but this one is the exception. A book club might finally make me crack this baby open!
