Halfway There!

Alright, I’ve made it to the halfway point. 15 books down, 15 to go. I’ve ranked the books thus far and below is the ranking. Keep in mind that this is incredibly difficult with books all over the board in terms of genre, date published, fiction/nonfiction, etc. How do you compare The Selfish Gene with Beloved? I tried my best based on my overall level of interest in the book which was determined by the content and the writing style. I had trouble with the order of the first four books, I loved them all so much, and this ordering could very well change once I’ve had more time to think about them.

Anyways, I can’t wait to get to the next fifteen books, so time to get reading!

  1. You Shall Know Our Velocity
  2. The Handmaid’s Tale
  3. A Year with Eleanor
  4. Ready Player One
  5. The Selfish Gene
  6. East of Eden
  7. A Little Life
  8. The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao
  9. Something Wicked This Way Comes
  10. Animal Farm
  11. The Picture of Dorian Gray
  12. The Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man
  13. Beloved
  14. Heart of Darkness
  15. On the Road


  1. Kathleen,
    Its Mrs. Allegretti. I’m so glad you are still reading and learning. Our HS book club was one of the great achievements of my teaching career! Wonderful for you!
