My Top 13 Great American Reads

by | May 20, 2018 | Uncategorized | 3 comments

Last week I shared about The Great American Read PBS. I hope you took the time to check out the list and take the  Quiz. I’ve read 51 out of the 100 books. Some I have never heard of before and some I just have no interest in reading. It will be interesting to see as I watch the PBS series if I change my mind. The first episode is Tuesday, May 22 on PBS.


I’m sharing my top 13 (I couldn’t trim it to top 10.) I don’t know how I will pick my number 1. Let me know how your list compares to mine.

These are in alphabetical order, not in rank.

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain

Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery

The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis

Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean M. Auel

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas

The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown

Gone with the Wind  by Margaret Mitchell

The Help by Kathryn Stockett

Jane Eyre  by Charlotte Brontë

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

Have you read any of these? What are your top 10 from the Great American Read list?IMG_1161
