Yes, you read that correctly, my friends. My husband has embarked on a reading challenge of his own. Probably more inspired by his reading friends than his reading wife, he has started on a list of the top 100 novels of the 20th century. I’m honestly not sure where the original list began, but he did do a bit of tweaking to include a more diverse author line-up, as well as a few children’s books. He is reading through the list a little differently than myself, as my husband does march to the beat of his own drum. I’m not even going to try and explain how he is dividing his list, just trust me, it’s different.
Anyway, I wanted to pass along a little bit of his reading experience from the last few months, all via his Twitter tweets. Enjoy!
Main character in “On The Road” just passed through Flagstaff and the Arizona mountains. Like us!! Wicki-wicki-WHAT!?!?
Just read Charlotte’s Web for the first time. My heart = broken.
Thus far in my 1900’s novels, “It” and “Haunting of Hill House” have been the only horror stories, but had the best character development.
Just finished Lovecraft’s “At the Mountains of Madness”. There may have been a total of 10 words that had less than 3 syllables.
Finished Call Of The Wild. It’s basically my biography if it was toned down a little.
I may be biased due to my degree in psychology, but One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest is one of the best books I’ve ever read.
Just finished The Great Gatsby. I pretty much wrote the same thing in 5th grade, so F. Scott needs to back up off.
Just finished Blood Meridian. Now onto The Satanic Verses. #upliftingbooks
Sorry, ladies, I know you want him, but he’s already taken. If you don’t believe me, here’s the proof.
