Підлітково-дорослий топ-100 від Amazon

Усе минеться, але моя любов до книжкових топів – вічна. Сьогодні набріла на топ-100 янг адалт, складений амазонівськими редакторами. Думала побачити довгий перелік надсучасних бестселерів. Нє, їх також багацько, але в цілому – це дуже дивний список.

Мабуть, його дивацтва пояснюються просто – підзаголовком “Книжки, що сподобаються і в 14, і в 40”. Нууу, є й таке. Окрім сучасного там купа класичної класики, яку сорокарічні точно читали. Але не вся ця класика – дитячо-підліткова. Гаразд, “Макбет”, припустимо. Але “Правила винокурні” чи The Color Purple (що я його, щиро кажучи, банально боюся читати)? Поза всім тим, топ цікавий. Там чимало такого, що в мої поважні роки вже нуйогонафіг читати, але дещо – точно буду.
