Books to Read During Your 20s

I was on Pinterest last night and saw a pin that linked to an article on Buzzfeed about the 65 books you should read in your 20s.  I thought I would see how many books on the list I've read since my 20s will be over in less than 100 days.

I want to say sadly, but I don't know if that's accurate, but I'e only read four of the books on the list:

  • Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
  • On the Road by Jack Kerouac
  • Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain
  • He's Just Not That Into You by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo

I can also say that I've read parts of two more but have never read the full novels:

  • Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison
  • The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway
I can't say that I feel my 20s were lessened by not having read all the books on the list, normally I don't take lists like this into account.  I number of the books are on my To Be Read list I just haven't gotten around to reading them with all the other books I've read during my 20s!


  1. What does it say about me that I've never heard of 50% of these, much less read them in my twenties?

  2. I hadn't heard of many of them either.
