Top Ten Tuesday: Books to Read with My Dream Book Club

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
Having a book club would be so useful so that 1. I can stay on top of my reading, 2. have people I can discuss feeeeeelings with, and 3. to not only have a "support group" of some kind, but to develop great bookish relationships. Below are books that are mostly coming out this year and would be great conversation starters. 

Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway
Why: to admire Robin Benway and to compare against other disappearing and reappearing best friend books.

Why: to recap on our feelings of the first book then talk about all the historical/nazi elements involved and the TENSION.

Paperweight by Meg Haston
Why: to talk about the deep stuff like suicide and eating disorders. 

Why: to ask each other "would you pay to cure heartbreak and erase your memory?" Also, I'm very interested in others' heartbreak stories. 

Things We Know by Heart by Jessi Kirby
 Why: to talk about everything involved with organ donating. It's a fascinating subject for me. 

After Hours by Claire Kennedy
Why: honestly, I just really want to know about everyone's job and dare experiences

The Revenge Playbook by Rachael Allen
Why: we can be typical girls and complain about guys. 

Why: THE CUTENESS. I want to talk about the cuteness! 

Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan
Why: to appreciate one of the best romance trends. Another "let's read this as a group so we can squeal about the cuteness." 

Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
Why: if by some chance I'm not the only one who hasn't read this, we can support each other!

What books would you want to discuss? Do you have a book club? 


  1. I would want to be in your book club to read these. I like that you picked books that would end up with completely different discussions. Fantastic list! I'm going to have to add some of these to my TBR list.

    1. Hey, I'll never turn down making this into reality, ha!

  2. I can't wait to read Emmy & Oliver. I love your list. Cute fun romance books FTW!!!

  3. Aw, I love this list, Summer! So many of these I'm excited to read + they'd make for great discussions! Emmy & Oliver and Things We Know By Heart... I need them NOW.
    Also, I adored Conspiracy! The duology would be fantastic to read with others.
    Great list, lady!

  4. Ooh, Things We Know By Heart sounds really good. I'll have to read that one when it comes out! And I could see having really interesting conversations around that.

  5. Yep, I would TOTALLY be a part of your book club! <3

  6. There are definitely some great books here that I would love to be part of my book group (if I had one, *cries*). I can't wait to start my copies of Things We Know by Heart and Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke. I hope we both end up enjoying these :)

  7. I love good discussion material for book clubs (as long as you throw in an easy, fun book every so often). But sadly, no book club for me. I'm in a small Bible study group where we're reading a book. Does that count? :)
