This list will be very revealing and potentially embarrassing. (For the record, I gave up feeling embarrassed over the things I like a long time ago, so maybe more like, secondhand embarrassing? You might cringe, but I won't.)
  1. Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen
    The quintessential, tbh. If I could spend the rest of my life reading/learning about/writing about Jane Austen, I absolutely would.
  2. Harry Potter, by JK Rowling
    The entire series, at least three times each. Planning a reread this year after my coworker borrows my copies. She's never read them. Can you imagine?!
  3. Outlander series, by Diana Gabaldon
    I even went to Scotland last year as a result.
  4. A Song of Ice and Fire, George RR Martin
    I would expand my reading list if I stopped picking up 1000+ page books, but I guess I just like to watch the world burn.
  5. Every @sarahdessen novel except Saint Anything, which I've only read once but is in my shopping cart via Tattered Cover
    I'm 27 and I still find something new in her books. My copy of The Truth About Forever is a well loved wreck.
  6. The Virgin Suicides, by Jeffrey Eugenides
    One of my go to novels to analyze in undergrad...if you know the text, why rock the boat?
  7. The Dubliners, by James Joyce
    Again, I took a lot of Modernism courses.
