This post caught my eye and made me both curious to take a look at Amazon’s list of “100 Books to read in a Lifetime” and to make my own personal list of the ten books I have yet to read but would love to in the near future. So here’s my list. They are in no particular order and not the only ones I found interesting, but the ones that interested me the most currently.
1. Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
2. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
3. Me Talk Pretty One by David Sedaris
4. Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie
5. The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien
6. The Road by Cormac McCarthy
7. The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
8. Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl
9. The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson
10. On the Road by Jack Kerouac
My top three recommendations (of what I have read from the list) are The Poisonwood Bible, 1984, and Things Fall Apart.
Make sure to check out the list on Amazon and maybe read a handful.
