Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week,
they post a different topic, and you get to create your own top ten list. So, this week'stopic is:
Books I Think Would Make Great Book Club Picks
1) Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah - such an amazing book, one that had me laughing and crying. Hannah examines the relationship between two friends, following them from childhood through adulthood. I just think it would make an interesting book to discuss.
2) Commencement by J. Courtney Sullivan - this story follows four friends after they graduate from college. While not the most intense novel that I've ever read, I think that it would be great to read this for a book club because everyone would have their own experiences to draw from for the discussion.
3) The Paris Wife by Paula McLain - a book about Ernest Hemingway's first wife, Hadley. A great book about one of the most famous authors. I could see some interesting conversations coming up about this book!
4) To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee - a classic that deserves to be revisted as an adult. Every person that I've ever talked to about this book has taken away something different.
5) Testimony by Anita Shreve - one of my favorite books! With each chapter told by a different character, you are able to see how a scandal rocks a prep school and affects not only the students and teachers, but parents, custodians, and townspeople.
6) Faith by Jennifer Haigh - this novel centers around a Catholic family in Boston that is rocked by a sex abuse claim against one of the brothers, who happens to be a priest. A great book club choice, one that everyone in the group would have an opinion on.
7) The Help by Kathryn Stockett - I think this one is pretty obvious for a book club choice, but it's still something that I think deserves a spot on this list. Everyone has something to say on this novel and everyone takes away something different.
8) Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte - another classic that everyone should revisit at least once. I love Jane and feel like she was a character far ahead of her time, but I've heard lots of other opinions on this book. Would make for a great books discussion.
Well, that's all that I could come up with for this week. What books would you like to have a book group choice? Let me know!
