Plenty of folks have lists of the 100 best books of all time, the 100 books you should read, and so on. And beautifully, despite much overlap, they are all different. The glorious subjectivity of art means that no two of these lists should ever be exactly alike. So this is ours, our special snowflake of a list, born out of our passion for books. We kept it to fiction this time. Some of the expected classic novels are there, alongside some more contemporary stories. There is some science fiction, some YA, and above all else, some unforgettable stories.
