My Top 10 Favorite Novels (from age 22 – 52)

DSCN4865The novels on this list beg for numerous readings. I fell in love with the characters, found myself quoting from the novels, or I never get tired of talking about the themes in the novels.

  2. House of Spirits, Isabel Allende, first read in 1988
  3. The Pilgrimage, Paulo Coelho, first read in the 1990s
  4. The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho, first read in the 1990s
  5. How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents, Julia Alvarez, mid-1990s
  6. Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Truman Capote, first read in the mid-1980s
  7. Elegance of a Hedgehog, Muriel Barbery, first read in 2008 (?)
