We’re thinking about revamping our book club a bit.

Okay, whatever.

Instead of nominating books and voting, we’re thinking each person could take a turn and suggest a book. It could be an all-time favorite or a loved classic or something you’ve never read before. It could be fiction or non-fiction. Old or new.

Alyson listed some books in light of this and so will I.

My first list is books I loved that I could suggest, but probably won’t because I want to pick something I haven’t read yet. We’ll make it a Friday Fifteen:

1) A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
2) Sugar Daddy by Lisa Kleypas
3) Watership Down by Richard Adams
4) Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card
5) Ender’s Shadow by Orson Scott Card
6) Incantation by Alice Hoffman
7) The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
8) New Moon by Stephanie Meyer
9) Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes
10)Bridges of Madison County by Robert James Waller
11) Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury
12) The Trudeau Vector by Juris Jurjevics
13) The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
14) The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
15) Andromeda Strain by Michael Crichton

The next list contains highly possible suggestions as I want to read all these books:
1) A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah
2) How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff
3) I’d Tell You I Love You But Then I’d Have to Kill You by Ally Carter
4) Ella Minnow Pea: A Novel in Letters by Mark Dunn
5) Saving Miss Oliver's: A Novel of Leadership, Loyalty and Change by Stephen Davenport
6) Charm School by Nelson DeMille
7) Her Majesty’s Dragon by Naomi Novik
8) Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, a Man Who Would Cure the World by Tracy Kidder
9) Sunshine by Robin McKinley
10) Moongazer by Marianne Mancusi
11) An Accidental Goddess by Linnea Sinclair
12) The Host by Stephanie Meyer
