These Are The 100 ‘Best Books Ever’ According To Goodreads
How many have you read?
If you’re a bibliophile or member of a book club, you’re probably starting to curate your summer reading list. But since you devour books so fast, you might be having a hard time finding good ones that you haven’t already read.
To help, Goodreads has compiled a list of the 100 “best books ever.” The list was compiled based on votes from the general Goodreads community, so keep that in mind as you read through. (We’re guessing your favorite literature professor wouldn’t put “Twilight” above “Jane Eyre.”)
Chances are you voracious readers have already read a good deal of the books on this list. But perhaps it can help point you to a new favorite or remind you to revisit a classic. For some more inspiration, you can check out other Goodreads lists. Ones we especially like for summer: “Light But Not (Too) Dumb” and “Most Anticipated May 2017 New Releases.”
