I just stumbled upon this. It’s a pretty good list, I think. I was surprised to see I’ve read a lot of these books, and a handful of them when I was not the “coming of age” age.
There’s also a lot that I want to read— particularly We Have Always Lived in the Castle and Transformations (I read a lot of Sexton when I was an angsty teen, but never this one!). I’m curious about The Complete Claudine too.
The first eight books on the list (except Self-Help and Get in Trouble— never read either of them) were a big deal for me when I was middle-high school. And a bunch of the others, but littleraptor wants to make pumpkin bread now I have to cut this short.
