That wasn't my book list, I would have had many more female authors, more people of color and more controversy.
These need to be added:
Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neal Hurston (best love story ever)
Monkey Wrench Gang by Abbey
The Jungle by Sinclair
Wuthering Heights by Bronte
House of Spirits by Isabella Allende
All the Barbara Kingsolver Books
That's all I can think of for now, feel free to comment with your favorite books. Anything to get us reading!
