The Big Bad Mother-Daughter Book Club Reading List

Okay, that title is kind of a mouthful but I felt like an epic list of must-read books needed an equally epic title.

During our BBQ last Saturday, my mom handed me this self-typed self-printed list of books that we’ll be reading for our mother-daughter book club, and maybe it had something to do with the pitcher of sangria I’d consumed, but at the very end of the night, I sat up in bed reading this list out loud to Joey and was SO GIDDY about it.  It takes a particular kind of nerd to get giddy over a list of books, and that would be the bookworm type of nerd.  GUILTY.

So without further adieu!


I’m only halfway through Flowers for Algernon right now, but I’m already excited for so many of the following books.  Specifically, Catch-22, To Kill a Mockingbird, Anne of Green Gables (Mom, can we watch the movie afterwards??), The Handmaid’s Tale, The Little Prince (we’re reading it in French, right?) and For Whom the Bell Tolls.  You know, because Hemingway is the way to my heart.  I also have a feeling my mom and sister will quit our book club after our first meeting, when they realize I’m way to enthusiastic about all of this.

Have you read anything on this list?

  1. I’ve read a few on the list but mainly in high school on papyrus scrolls. There’s only one that I’m really not looking forward to — maybe 2. One Thousand Years of Really Boring Solitude and Crime and Punishment. I might be sick for those group meetings. I already feel feverish just thinking about them.
