  1. OMG! I totally forgot about The Bluest Eye. You’re right it has the saddest ending ever. I think that’s one of the reasons why it’s so memorable.

  2. Think we have four of them in common. So yes, have to say the obvious : I like your list :))

    Catcher in the Rye and Fountainhead are my all-time favorites.

  3. I really like The Grapes of Wrath, To Kill a Mockingbird and Forever almost made my list, it’s one I definitely won’t forget. I also enjoyed The Little House on the Prairie series.
