The Pulitzer Prize for Fiction – how many have you read?

Barbara Vitelli, a.k.a. Book Club Mom, compiled this list of Pulitzer Prize winners for Fiction two years ago and updated it this year. By 2017, I had read only 10 of them, but since then I’ve added 5 and hope to read more. How many of these novels have you read?

  1. I’ve read several of these and liked some of them. I’m not always “into” what is deemed Pultizer, you know? But I did read and like ALL THE LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE and OLIVE KITTEREDGE and MARCH. I find “contests” so hard because some people think that makes them the “BEST” when in my mind it’s such a subjective thing.
    P.S. You’re books are wonderful!!! 🙂 xo

    1. Thanks again for your thoughtful praise of my books. I just found out my nephew and his wife are expecting a baby (yay!), so I’ll be buying your Molly book for the new arrival. 😊
      I agree about the subjective nature of prizes for works of Literature. Not everyone feels the same about these works. My husband I don’t always agree about books (don’t tell him but I think he’s a bit of a book snob 😉).
