The classics call so it's time for another round of 100 Books to Read in a Lifetime. This month's selection includes:

Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh

Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom

Life of Pi by Yann Martel

On the Road by Jack Kerouac

Rebecca by Dame Daphne Du Maurier

Swallows and Amazons by Arthur Ransome

A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens

I have actually read a few on this list. It's been a while since I read Life of Pi but I remember enjoying it. Five People You Meet in Heaven was thought provoking and a great exploration of how one life can affect so many others. My all time favorite Charles Dickens' novel is A Tale of Two Cities. I have read that multiple times and it definitely deserves to be on this list.

I think I might try Rebecca as I've heard of it but never read it.

Let us know which you've read, what you thought of them, and if you think they deserve to be on this list!

Ann (ann-fracturedfiction) | 439 comments I've only read two from this list: Brideshead (awesome movie) and Cloud Atlas (which I have not yet watched). Both books deserve to be on the list.
I think I might try Rebecca as well (it is, I believe, shorter that A Tale of Two Cities).
Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell
Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
