Everyone generally has a list of books that they either save to read when they’re older, or that they re-read later on for a different perspective. I wasn’t able to truly appreciate Fitzgerald’sThe Great Gatsby, C.S. Lewis’Space Trilogy, or even Kerouac’sOn the Roaduntil at least my late teens. It wasn’t because I hadn’t already read much more complicated books, but more so because my point of view on these particular themes changed as I grew and matured. So I’m very excited to have found a neat list on buzzfeed.com which lists 65 Books You Need to Read in Your 20s.
With an interesting collection which ranges from great classics to contemporary literature, this list is sure to keep you busy for a while! I plan on starting my own 65 Book Challenge and finishing all the books on the list. I’ll be sure to post some good reviews once I finish each one! The first on the list is The Emperor's Children by Claire Messud which I will be starting today. Whether you are ten or one-hundred, you can feel free to join me in the challenge or even simply leave comments about which of the books on the list you’ve read and what you liked/ didn’t like about them. Now this is what I call a literary adventure! :D
