Ten Novels That I Love
It’d be hard to pick the top fiction books of the past twenty-five years simply because I feel like I haven’t read the best books of the past twenty-five years. I have The Road, Blood Meridian, and No Country for Old Men — all books by Cormac McCarthy — in my current reading pile, as well as American Gods and The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman.
All of them, when I finish reading them, seem like they’d stand a good chance of being in my Novels That Have Impacted Me list. I’ll certainly be adding some of the other books that alto mentioned to my list to read.
I’m going to cheat a little and draw from the last twenty-five years and beyond to list some of the books that I’ve loved reading the most.
