Book List

Here is my complete list of books to read. Well, not exactly complete. The list only has 39 titles, if anyone ever reads this blog feel free to suggest something I might read! To be clear, most novels that are considered ‘classics’ that aren’t on this list I have either read before or have reasons for not wanting to read them.

So….and in no particular order….really this is not the order I am reading them in….trust me….
