BCM’s Top 25

I started with a Top 10 list, then I expanded it to Top 15. Now it’s grown to a Top 25 All-Time Favorites. Some of my earlier picks didn’t make it to the Top 25, but I had to make room for all the great books I’ve read in recent years! Here they are in alphabetical order. All links go to my reviews except one (The Kite Runner). I read The Kite Runner before I started my blog, but I plan to re-read it to give it a proper review. Also, I apologize for the short review of All the Light We Cannot See. It’s such a great book, I need to re-read that too and beef up my review!
