100 best

i'll admit it - i totally didn't read the assigned books in high school. like, EVER. i was totally into Hank the Cowdog in elementary school, but as soon as we started getting Assigned Reading in middle school, i was done. adult me is HORRIFIED at this truth, but there it is.  for real, the only books i finished in my 4 years of high school were The Great Gatsby and Lord of the Flies.

now, as mentioned seconds earlier, adult me is not pleased with this turn of events. i know i missed out on some serious goodness...and i'm going to change that.

thanks to the 100 best novels list, i've discovered (at least) 5 classic books that i genuinely, honestly, want to read. i'm totally drawing from the user's list, because i feel like it's similar to using blogger review suggestions etc.

by Ralph Ellison

by Harper Lee

by H.P. Lovecraft

by Douglas Adams

by William Faulkner

Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.


  1. I from the south so I may be a little biased, but TO KILL A MOCKING BIRD is probably the best book I've ever read. Seriously. If you only read on from that list, make it that one. Harper Lee is my hero. :)

  2. invisible man is some real business too. good pick.

  3. so i've heard. i truly need to get on that. so much to read!

    stupid work.


Hey you! What do you have to say?
