Lobstergirl Deleted "Lords of Misrule" by Abnett. The correct book is Lord of Misrule by Jaimy Gordon.

Lauren Thank you!

Mitchell Added books from the posted list from the bottom up including Young People's Literature, Western, Science, Science Fiction, Religion and Poetry and most of Philosophy. And that's the end of my 100 votes.

George P. The Friend by Sigrid Nunez won the National Book Award for Fiction in 2018 and wasn't on list, so I added it.
