Some good suggestions here, but I’d feel like I’d be cheating if I strayed from the list now!
Blogger and author Jessie Ansons has set a challenge to read (and, I presume, review) 100 must read books. The list can be found here. Skimming the selection got me thinking about the books that I think are missing from that list.
For example, I would love to see Toni Morrison’s Beloved on that list. Morrison’s text showcases the complex interplay of past, present and future, and the difficult decisions which reverberate across time and space.
I would also like to see the much beloved John Green represented in the list. My vote would be for Paper Towns or The Fault in our Stars, however I would be happy to see any of his works make the list. Green has this uncanny ability to consistently craft engaging adolescent voices and it is for this, as much his story telling ability, that should earn him a place on the list.
