SnapDragon lists her tried-and-true, doesn’t-remember-life-without-them books.
My signature move at parties is to ask people to list their favorite things–movies, bands, desserts–without overthinking their response.
“Ready, gut-reaction, go!”
So in fairness, I’ve decided to list my all-time favorite books using this method. No second-guessing. No re-dos. Just what comes to mind as I type this, all in one sitting.
These are the stories that have shaped me; they without a doubt make the cut for Part 1 of My Ultimate Library.
It should also be noted that for Part 1 I am only listing works of fiction.
So. . . Ready, gut-reaction, GO!”
