Top Ten Books I’d Like to Read with My Book Club

This week’s entry into the ongoing feature over at The Broke and the Bookish : Top Ten Tuesday.

1-3.  Peaches For Father Francis by Joanne Harris. I just finished this and would love to discuss it with someone! It’s book 3 of the Chocolat series, coming behind Chocolat, and The Girl with No Shadow, which I also enjoyed.

4-5. The Aviator’s Wife by Melanie Benjamin. This is an “in demand” book for book groups, and having read and loved Anne Morrow Lindbergh’s Gift From The Sea, I’d like to learn more about Mrs. Lindbergh, even if this is billed as an historical fiction.

6.  I read 11/22/63, Stephen King’s alternate history of the Kennedy assassination, a few months ago for my book club, but was unable to attend the discussion. So, yea, I’d like to find a group to discuss this with!

7. Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri. I’ve been to Florence, read Dan Brown’s Inferno, (note no number to discuss this title…) but would like to get to the root of the story and be able to read and discuss with others this Magnum Opus.

8. The House at Sugar Beach: In Search of a Lost Childhood by Helene Cooper. I’m always fascinated by these autobiographical accounts of such traumatic magnitude. I’d like to write my own autobiography but I can’t think of anything so dramatic to recount from my pretty-much idyllic life.

9. The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton. A foundling, an old book of dark fairy tales, a secret garden, an aristocratic family history, a love denied, and a mystery…what’s not to love??

10. The Whistling Season by Ivan Doig. Quirky characters, a peek into the life of vanished American Frontier, great writing–I can hardly wait!
