Are you remotely surprised I chose a Jane Austen novel? “Laugh as much as you choose, but you will not laugh me out of my opinion!” There is no way I could make this list without listing Jane Austen’s best-selling novel of all times: Pride and Prejudice

The Elegance of the Hedgehog, by Muriel Barbery  THE ELEGANCE OF THE HEDGEHOG, BY MURIEL BARBERY Set in a luxury Parisian apartment building and for the most part, written from the point of view of its homely (but secretly brilliant) concierge, this sweet, funny translation does the original French novel (which was a massive bestseller, many times over) justice. It’s a compelling, thought-provoking read that puts forward the thesis that we should all look beyond appearances.
