Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week’s topic is “Ten Books I Bought/Borrowed Because…” so I chose ten books that other people in my book club picked out. These were books that I discussed with my book club and would not have read or purchased otherwise!

1. Lessons From Lucy: The Simple Joys of an Old, Happy Dog by Dave Barry

Read my review here.

2. The Woman in the Window: A Novel by A. J. Finn

3. The Screwtape Letters by C. S. Lewis

4. Hope Never Dies: An Obama Biden Mystery by Andrew Shaffer

My book club tweeted Andrew Shaffer and Joe Biden inviting them to our book club. Andrew showed via Skype!

5. The Day the World Came to Town: 9/11 in Gander, Newfoundland by Jim DeFede

6. The Circle by Dave Eggars

7. Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl

8. All the Light We Cannot See: A Novel by Anthony Doerr

9. Sourdough and Other Stories by Angela Slatter

10. The Goldfinch by Donna Tart

So, there you have it! My book club has read plenty of books, but I dropped money on these ones and finished them. (Our book club is notorious for always having at least one DNF-er in the crowd.) Have you read any of these? Are you in a book club? Let me know below!
