I Want To Be In Your Club!

What are your Top Ten Book Club Picks?  This week The Broke and The Bookish want to know.  I’m not sure if my books are going to work.  I’ve never been part of a book club, so I don’t know what kinds of books are normally chosen.  So, I’ve decided to theme my book club picks.

1.     If the book club read Zombie books:  Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, by Jane Austen and Seth Graeme-Smith.
2.     If the book club read Vampire books:  Dracula, by Bram Stoker or Interview with a Vampire, by Anne Rice.
3.     If the book club read Dystopian books:  The Handmaid’s Tale, by Margaret Atwood.
4.     If the book club read Young Adult fantasy books:  Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone, by J.K. Rowling or The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins.
5.     If the book club read Fantasy books:  The Crystal Shard, by R.A. Salvatore.
6.     If the book club read Classics:  Flush, by Virginia Woolf.
7.     If the book club read Mysteries:  The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, by Stieg Larsson or Murder On The Orient Express, by Agatha Christie.
8.     If the book club read Horror:  The Stand, by Stephen King (even though I haven’t read it yet…)
9.     If the book club read Historical Fiction:  The Wars, by Timothy Findley.
10. If the book club read Paranormal Romance:  Undead and Unwed, by MaryJanice Davidson.

What is your book club going to read?


  1. It would be interesting to see what others in a book group think of Handmaid's Tale. Very powerful story.

    I love modern spins on Jane Austen books, but have yet to read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I hope to read it soon. Great list!

    My Top Ten...

  4. Very creative (and helpful) way of selecting your books!

    I just read & reviewed The Handmaid's Tale about a week ago - loved it!

  5. There's quite a few books on this list that I've looked into reading but haven't read yet. Great list!

    Thanks for visiting my Top Ten.

  6. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I've heard so many great things about The Handmaid's Tale but I just haven't gotten around to picking it up yet.

  7. Deb, Kimberly, The Handmaid's Tale is an amazing novel and I can't encourage enough people to read it.

    Adam, Tanya, i thought I'd give the list a twist this week.

    Steph, Zombies + Austen = fun!

    Manda-Rae, those are all great books, I hope you get to read some of them soon.
