Are you remotely surprised I chose a Jane Austen novel? “Laugh as much as you choose, but you will not laugh me out of my opinion!” There is no way I could make this list without listing Jane Austen’s best-selling novel of all times: Pride and Prejudice
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. A young boy struggling with the sudden loss of his mother becomes entranced with a small painting that draws him into the mysterious underworld of the art industry. Winner of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
