Dreaming on a Busy Street

I’ve been in a book-reading rut lately, so I’ve decided to tackle Rory Gilmore’s Book List, as compiled by Australian writer Patrick Lenton. And Buzzfeed. It was a little alarming to realize I haven’t read some classics, like Alice in Wonderland and Pride and Prejudice. But I do have somewhat of a head-start. Since the list is in alphabetical and not chronological order, I feel okay about skipping around.

First up: The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay by Michael Chabon

Second: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Third: In Cold Blood by Truman Capote (slight veer to Breakfast at Tiffany’s first)

Fourth: Franny and Zooey by J.D. Salinger

Fifth: Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf

  1. 1984 by George Orwell 
  2. Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
  3. Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
  4. The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay by Michael Chabon
  5. An American Tragedy by Theodore Dreiser
