Top Ten Tuesday was started by The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday there’s a different topic. This week’s topic is Top Ten books to read if your book club likes X. I chose to do Top Ten books to read if your book club likes books that tackle hard subjects.
10. I’ll Meet You There – Heather Demetrios. I love all Heather Demetrios’ books but this one stood out for the way it tackled PTSD.
9. The Inside of Out – Jenn Marie Thorne. I think this is one that could cause some debates in a book club. The main character wants to be vocally supportive of her best friend coming out but is so loud her friend’s voice isn’t heard.
8. Rites of Passage – Joy N Hensley. Not only is the main character very badass, this book is great for showing girls are just as capable as boys.
7. Unwind – Neal Shusterman. Not only is this one of my favourite series, it would bring up a lot of good book club questions with how this world works.
6. All We Have Left – Wendy Mills. This one really touched me and I think it would touch a lot of book clubs members as well. Plus I actually know someone using this as a book club book this month;)
5. Symptoms of Being Human – Jeff Garvin. This one is such an important book and deals with a subject a haven’t seen a lot of in books yet.
4. Let’s Get Lost – Adi Alsaid. I know this one has gotten mixed reviews but that seems like even more of a reason to pick it. With 5 different POVs from 5 very different characters, it should be easy to find some points to debate on.
3. Made You Up – Francesca Zappia. There’s so much a book club could get out of this book.
2. Uninvited – Sophie Jordan. How much does DNA play into who a person is and what they will do? This book tackles that.
1. All the Bright Places – Jennifer Niven. This one destroyed me and I’m not sure if a book club would be us talking about this book or sitting around crying and trying to comfort each other.
