A weekly book meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week's theme is the Top Ten Books that would be on my syllabus if I taught Coming of Age 101:Well, I got to chose which imaginary class to teach, and I went with Coming of Age Novels 101 (or Bildungsroman 101, if I wanted to be fancy). School is about to start again all around the country, so it's the perfect time to make up an awesome theoretical class. This class will cover a wide range of novels all centered on the theme of growing up (and no, this has nothing to do with my impending birthday, what are you suggesting?!?). The books were chosen to represent both genders and to showcase both the differences and universal truths inherent in growing up throughout history and across cultures.
What is your Top Ten this week?
