My Favorite Novels
Now that I have completed my Quest to Read the 100 Greatest Novels of All Time, it is time for me to update my Personal Canon.
I can’t bring myself to call something that is personal to me, a “canon”. It’s contradictory. I know I should just accept the idiomatic meaning, but I can’t. It’s me – it isn’t you, so let’s just move on.
And call this my Personal Favorites – the most compelling novels I’ve read, novels that inspire exalted thought, poignant emotion, or both.
My Favorite novels (in order, beginning with most favored). My threshold is 4 ½ or 5 Stars. I’ll add to this list when I read new works meeting that threshold.
