Classics and Then Some
The list includes a bunch of classics such as One Hundred Years of Solitude, A Wrinkle in Time, and War & Peace. But Miranda includes a lot of books that aren’t as popular or well known. Most lists include a mix of both and Miranda’s list is no different.
I am curious about many of Miranda’s selections and will be giving them a read in the future. You can tell he enjoys reading and isn’t afraid to pick up any book from the shelf if it piques his interest. This is his reading list from 2020 and I would love to see what he is reading nowadays.
