My New List of Great Books

A Listmania! list by Natanya Auerbach (Redmond, WA, United States)
The list author says: "Over the past couple years I have to some degree changed the genres of books I read, but I figure I should keep up my other list of more "teen" books, so I'm making a new list."
The Handmaid's Tale (Everyman's Library)
1.  The Handmaid's Tale (Everyman's Library) by Margaret Atwood
The list author says:
  "Very compelling and interesting book, both to read and analyze. I used it for my Extended Essay for the International Baccalaureate program and really enjoyed analyzing it."
$19.08   Used & New from: $4.69
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,209 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Brave New World
2.  Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
The list author says:
  "I've read it a few times, and while I do not like it as much as I originally did, I do think that it is a good book and worth reading."
$8.46   Used & New from: $2.46
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,331 customer reviews) | 5 customer discussions

Water for Elephants: A Novel
3.  Water for Elephants: A Novel by Sara Gruen
The list author says:
  "Fun, quick, and interesting book. I also learned a lot of random circus facts from it!"
$8.53   Used & New from: $0.01
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5,864 customer reviews) | 47 customer discussions

The Time Traveler's Wife
4.  The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
The list author says:
  "Wonderful book. It's a little slow at the beginning, but once you get past that, it is definitely worth the wait."
$8.44   Used & New from: $0.01
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2,536 customer reviews) | 65 customer discussions

Flowers for Algernon
5.  Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes
The list author says:
  "When I read this a few years ago, I stayed up practically all night reading. It sends you on a roller coaster of emotions as only an amazing book can do."
$7.32   Used & New from: $3.00
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (781 customer reviews)

Norwegian Wood
6.  Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami
The list author says:
  "I love Japanese literature, and Haruki Murakami is a fantastic author. I have only read this novel and Kafka on the Shore, but I plan on reading the rest of his novels. They're quirky and fantastical, but insightful."
$8.48   Used & New from: $3.00
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (347 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Kitchen (A Black cat book)
7.  Kitchen (A Black cat book) by Banana Yoshimoto
The list author says:
  "Wonderful book. I read it for school, but subsequently read a couple other Yoshimoto books. They are very easy and quick reads, but she deals well with very difficult and heavy topics."
$11.83   Used & New from: $3.71
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (130 customer reviews)

Disgrace: A Novel
8.  Disgrace: A Novel by J. M. Coetzee
The list author says:
  "This book is...wow. It's intense, but amazing."
$13.63   Used & New from: $2.70
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (434 customer reviews)

Oryx and Crake
9.  Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood
The list author says:
  "I have an unhealthy obsession with Atwood. However, I actually didn't like Oryx & Crake very much the first time I read it. The second time around, however, I loved it. It is bizarre, and there are a lot of details that you can miss, but I think it's worth it."
$9.01   Used & New from: $1.45
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (651 customer reviews) | 4 customer discussions

The History of Love
10.  The History of Love by Nicole Krauss
The list author says:
  "This is such a beautiful novel. It's one of those unexplainable books that you just have to read. It's sad, yet uplifting at the same time."
$8.66   Used & New from: $0.01
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (524 customer reviews) | 44 customer discussions

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
11.  The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon
The list author says:
  "Quick read, but very good. The novel is told from the point of view of an autistic boy, and it is interesting to read a novel from a less common perspective."
$8.44   Used & New from: $0.01
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2,226 customer reviews) | 15 customer discussions

Le Petit Prince (French Language Edition)
12.  Le Petit Prince (French Language Edition) by Antoine de Saint-Exupery
The list author says:
  "I read it (rather, stumbled through it) in French class, and plan to read it again once I have more confidence in my French skills. But nevertheless, I loved it and will never forget it."
$6.22   Used & New from: $0.97
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (218 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

The Perks of Being a Wallflower
13.  The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
The list author says:
  "I read this a few years ago and remember it being very good."
$10.90   Used & New from: $0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5,747 customer reviews)

The Last Lecture
14.  The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch
The list author says:
  "Fantastic book, with so many great words of wisdom."
$21.99   Used & New from: $0.01
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,821 customer reviews) | 9 customer discussions

Life of Pi
15.  Life of Pi by Yann Martel
The list author says:
  "A boy, a tiger, the Pacific Ocean. What more do you need? After a zillion people recommended this book to me, I finally got around to reading it, and it's wonderful."
$9.01   Used & New from: $0.01
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5,467 customer reviews) | 7 customer discussions

Uglies (Uglies Trilogy, Book 1)
16.  Uglies (Uglies Trilogy, Book 1) by Scott Westerfeld

  "This is on my older list too, since it's a YA book, but I still like this series. Scott Westerfeld's books are quick, addicting reads, but still interesting."
Used & New from: $0.01
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (858 customer reviews) | 7 customer discussions
