15 books

I came across a list from Verity's The B Files blog of 15 books that will stick with her forever. Here's my list of 15 books I've read that will stay with me always (not in any particular order). The first 15 I can recall in no more than 15 minutes.

1. The Secret History by Donna Tartt
2. The Magus by John Fowles
3. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
4. Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
5. They Were Sisters by Dorothy Whipple
6. A Handful of Dust by Evelyn Waugh
7. Tender is the Night by F. Scott Fitzgerald
8. The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins
9. Of Human Bondage by W. Somerset Maugham
10. In the Woods by Tana French
11. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
12. I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith
13. Le Grand Meaulness by Alain Fournier
14. The Go-Between by L.P. Hartley
15. Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood


  1. hello Mrs B! Nice to see your blog and thanks for linking to me. Rebecca is certainly popular on this list when people post it; I wish I had put I capture on mine though, and I'd forgotten about most of the Persephone titles that I have read! Anyway, look forward to seeing more posts from you.

  2. Hi, Mrs. B!

    I think you're my "literary soulmate" notwithstanding Pride and Prejudice of course.

  3. Oh wow Peter, have you read all these books? I'd love to see your 15 books!

  4. Verity - Thanks! I love your two blogs.
