These are somewhat listed in order of my favorites, but about halfway through, it goes a bit out of wack. These are just the top 20 books that I’ve read more than once and have stuck with me and will always stick with me.
I didn’t include any Shakespeare because those aren’t books. But if I had done top 20 written works, Shakespeare would have taken up majority of space, just for the record.
Find more of my book history and reviews of some of these books on my book blog, Book Blurbs by Rachel.
