Hitchhiker’s Guide and other important books

 

the little prince - birds

 

The top ten books that have stuck with me:

1) The Two Princesses of Bamarre by Gail Carson Levine (first book to ever make me cry)

2) The Giver by Lois Lowry (first book to make me really think)

3) My Antonia by Willa Cather (for the love story)

4) The HitchHiker’s Guide to The Galaxy by Douglas Adams (for the puns and the British humor*)

5) Milkweed by Jerry Spinelli

6) Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer

7) Everything is Illuminated (for Alex, for witness)

8) The House of the Spirits by Isabelle Allende

9) The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls

and..

10) The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint Exupery

*and for the babblefish, which is still one of the coolest fictional inventions ever
