Something I noticed while putting this list together is how book covers have evolved through the years! A lot of the books I have read that are over 10 years old have very beige covers…
You will notice that I did not include a lot of classics on this list, but it wouldn’t be an honest list if I did not include Pride and Prejudice.
The Secret History was the first dark academia novel I ever read, so it will always have a special place in my heart. These characters are awful and pretentious and I hate that I love them!
Never Let Me Go is my favourite book of all time, though there are a few other Ishiguro books I could have included on this list. The Remains of the Day, for example.
I have a feeling that The Kite Runner will be on a lot of lists this week, for good reason! This is a book that has withstood the test of time and I think is a modern classic.
Practical Magic is my favourite witchy series and I have so much nostalgia for both the book and the movie!
Quiet is nonfiction and it completely changed my outlook on my introversion. It was a game-changer for me!
The Language of Flowers is one of those books I do not talk about nearly enough! I remember it being popular when it came out but the hype has definitely died down. It is a book I have recommended to a lot of people in my real life.
The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating is one of the most beautiful and moving memoirs I have ever read. The author tells her story of being bedridden and how a snail kept her company. It is wonderful!
84, Charing Cross Road is a must-read for book lovers! I love reading the letters that were shared between a woman in New York and a bookseller in the UK.
Can you believe that The Song of Achilles came out over ten years ago? This book has incredible staying power!
