THE TOP TEN BOOKS OF ALL TIME, ACCORDING TO ME 📚

Inspired by @ListPrompts
  1. Boys of My Youth, Joann Beard
    Nonfiction essays. 10/10. Five stars. All thumbs up. Etc.
  2. Dandelion Wine, Ray Bradbury
    Haunting.
  3. My Sister the Nightmare, Janet Bloss
    Probably out of print. Read over and over again as a kid.
  4. I Know This Much Is True, Wally Lamb
    I've only cried while reading fiction like three times. This book was the first one to make me cry.
  5. Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen
    If you read her enough, she changes the way you think your thoughts.
  6. There Is Room For You, Charlotte Bacon
    Second time I cried while reading fiction. Charlotte was my professor and is a fearless writer who tackles a multitude of genres. While working at her college library, she stumbled upon some journals of British women who'd lived in colonial India. Years later, she wrote this.
  7. Words Under the Words, Naomi Shihab Nye
    Gorg.
  8. Carnival Evening, Linda Pastan
    Pastan is the kind of poet/writer who makes you feel like you're writing alongside her as you read.
  9. Contemporary American Poetry, Ed. A Poulin
    Introduced me to contemporary American poetry. True to its word, basically.
  10. Brave New World, Aldous Huxley
    I think about this book A LOT as pot becomes legalized, state by state.
