Personally I think the Pulitzer Prize tends to be a very poor judge of whether a book is worth reading or not. (I haven't looked into how they are chosen, so I don't know why that is.) A much longer list would be "Pulitzer Prize Winning Books I've THOUGHT About Reading."
  1. GONE WITH THE WIND // Margaret Mitchell
    One of my ride or die faves. Very readable, has an amazing plot and amazing characters that are flawed but still likable. Truly a modern epic. Its only downfall is racism 😒
  2. THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA // Ernest Hemingway
    I read this for 11th grade English. It was readable, but I didn't really get it or particularly like it. Spoiler: he catches a big fish and then he dies. Overall, pretty meh.
  3. TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD // Harper Lee
    Probably the one book most deserving of honors. I've read this 3 or 4 times and I plan to keep on reading it until I die.
  4. THE ROAD // Cormac McCarthy
    This is written in an interesting style, and with the plot, this was enough to engage 15 year old me. I remember really liking it when I read it, but I've basically never thought about it since.
  5. ALL THE LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE // Anthony Doerr
    I just finished reading this and I don't get why people like it. I mean, sure, it's a fine book, but one to talk about at all, let alone sing its praises? Not really.
  6. Make your own list telling me your thoughts on Pulitzer Prize winning books that you've read!
    I obviously haven't read that many so maybe I've just gotten a poor sampling and should adjust my opinion on whether it's a noteworthy distinction!
