Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag ten people.
I decided to only list fiction.
1. D.H. Lawrence: Sons and Lovers
2. Tanith Lee: Don’t Bite the Sun
3. Thomas Mann: Faust
4. Ursula le Guin: The Birthday of the World
5. L.M. Montgomery: Anne of Green Gables
6. Doris Lessing: Memoirs of a Survivor
7. Julie O’Faolain : Women in the Wall
8. Margaret Atwood: Surfacing
9. Octavia Butler: Parable of the Sower
10. Chinua Achebe: Things Falls Apart
