Books for a Bucket List

In no particular order (but I’ll try to separate by genre and country); I will be adding titles here.
Some are old favourites, some new delights; some are obscure, others fairly popular.
I will list authors first, then some titles of books they’ve written.

    1. Madeleine L’Engle was one of my favorite authors as a child, I then introduced them to my boys and now they are looking forward to their children being old enough to enjoy them, they really are that good.
