Top Ten Books I Think Would Make Great Book Club Picks

Let's throw some possibilities out there:











Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

The Stone Angel is a great novel, I've been wanting to re-read it.
The cover of Speak is really interesting. I'm going to have to look that one up.

I've had "Speak" on my wishlist for ages... I really must get around to buying it!

Mrs Q Book Addict said...

I haven't read most of these, but I do agree that "Speak" would be a great book club read.

Ooh, I've never read Brideshead Revisited...I've been loving Downton Abbey so another story about an English house might be perfect!

Maus, Stargirl, Brideshead, Speak, such great choices! I need to check out the suggestions I haven't read.

I've been hearing about Maus for a long time now. I should read that classic graphic novel. Great list, by the way!

I've only read Speak off of this list, but it definitely deserves its spot on here! Great list!

Oh, I love your choice of Stargirl!!!

Ah, Maus. So amazing, and so hard to read at times. Fantastic addition to your list.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, and happy reading!

Maus is so great, but so tough. Fantastic addition to your list.

This is Bookzilla, btw. Neither Blogger nor Blogspot are letting me comment while logged in. Thanks for stopping by my blog, and happy reading!

Those are some nice-looking non-fiction books, Deb! I have Maus and Brideshead Revisited but I haven't read them yet. Thanks for visiting my blog!

I've heard Maus is absolutely excellent. I've been wanting to give it a try since there has yet to be any type of graphic novel in my library. From what they've told me, I understand that the book's symbolism is amazing...

Louise said...

I certainly agree about Speak, lots to talk about there. I haven't heard about Material World, but the cover looks interesting.

I'd have to quibble about Lonesome Dove. Unless your book group meets every two years...
