Books we will NEVER read for book club

Please - feel free to add.

50 Shades of Grey - based on principle
Twilight - see above
Harry Potter - everyone has already read this, and I really don't feel like reading a kids book.

Nothing to add except I wholeheartedly agree with the above statement.

But if you DO decide to add 50 Shades of Grey, they were selling them at Costco. Which I find disturbing on many, many levels.

So I will own up to reading the twilight books, ( I was in high school... and bored) and I figured when thirty of my friends were raving about 50 Shades of Grey I would give it a try. And agree that no one should ever discuss these books other than warn others to stay away.

However young adult books are sometimes a good read. I like to see what people are peddling at the youth, what I may want to have my future children read. I also like some of the themes and the characters more than adult books, I feel they can get away with more imagination than some adult books. Like Scott Westerfield's take on vampires. The book is called Peeps, I would recommend anyone with a free afternoon to read it. It's not bad. He also has some awesome steampunk novels.
