I am so glad to see The Fountainhead.
And we have more in common!
Stuck forever and ever!
The Giving Tree is one of my all time favorite kids book — great choice!
I’ve only read Are You There God by Blume but I keep hearing about Forever. Maybe I need to pick it up. Here’s mine.
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.
I had The Good Earth on my list, too. The Bluest Eye is near the top of my tbr pile!
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.
I completely forgot THE GOOD EARTH on my list. I love that book.
1984 stayed with me for a long time. Do the kids in school still read it?
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.
I loved The Kite Runner and TTW!
Enjoy your weekend 🙂
