It's good that classics is broad though, because now we have something to easily fall back on when we can't think of a theme.

Lol, we should have an asian themed week someday with stuff like "Joy luck club" and "Memoirs of a Geisha."

Murder mystery sounds good too. I wanna read some Agatha Christie <3



Oh, and children's classics like Alice in wonderland <3

Whose books? You weren't very specific.


There's so many books I wanna list here for suggestion fallbacks, but not enough themes I can think of.

So far we've got:
Classics
Children's classics
Murder Mystery
Shakespeare
Asian
Animal Stories
Trashy Romance

Suggested (chop suey) of authors that is hopefully diversified enough:

Emily Bronte: Wuthering Heights
Haruki Murakami: Dance, Dance, Dance
Amy Tan: Joy Luck Club
Paulo Coelho: The Alchemist (a must!)
Danielle Stee-- *gets shot* j/k
Gabriel Garcia Marquez: One Hundred Years of Solitude
Jeffrey Eugenides: The Virgin Suicides
Robert Jordan: Wheel of Time - Eye of the World
Anne Rice: Sleeping Beau-- *gets shot again* Okay, okay, The Vampire Lestat
Ian Fleming: any of the James Bond books (wut)
Khaled Hosseini: The Kite Runner


Uhm... Let's see... We need a romance novel for the lulz... Nora Roberts writes non-lascivious romance novels(???) o:

Oooh I voted for Great Expectations. Loved the book, but half of my class were like "uggh what is this". Maybe because we were reading it before the 9th grade and no one understood it >_>

Woot 7th social gorup \o/
I haven't read any modern books so I can only say what other people said were good Q_Q
Harry Potter *is shot*

Mmm I'll contribute some after I visit a book store tomorrow D8
