Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This weeks theme is: Top Ten Books II Think Would Make Great Book Club Picks. I may co-run a book club, this may be cheating a little, but I don’t care! I’m going to try to pick books that would work for girls and boys.
- Anya’s Ghost by Vera Brosgol – This is a fantastic GN. Seriously, it deserves all the buzz it’s been getting. My BG will be doing this in a couple of months and I can’t wait to see what they think
- Divergent by Veronica Roth – I LOVE this book to pieces. Lots of action and fast paced. The kids have loved this one each time I’ve done it.
- Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan – This one has a lot of ethical issues that could really be brought up. My group this month was split, but mainly because they wanted more action. It is slower paced, but I think it’s well worth it. I can’t wait to see where she takes it.
- Deadly Cool by Gemma Halliday - This is our choice for book group next month and I’m a little nervous. I adore the sass and snark in this one, but I worry the boys may not like it.
- The Fault in Our Stars by John Green - It’s John Green do I really need to say anything more? (But this one will make you laugh, cheer, & sob)
- Graceling by Kristin Cashore – This is one of my favorite series, plus I think there’s enough action to keep male and females interested. And c’mon how can you not love Katsa and Po?!
- Eighth Grade Bites by Heather Brewer – My teens EAT this one up. The all love Vlad and he is rarely on my shelves.
- Cryer’s Cross by Lisa McMann – This one the right amount of spook and suspense that I think teens will love.
- Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher – Jay Asher, enough said.
- Au Revoir, Cray European Chick by Joe Schreiber – This one may be more boyish, but GOODNESS. This is a great book for reluctant readers as it’s fast paced and FULL of action.
Be sure to let me know what your picks are for this week.
