One of the categories for A RAD Reading Challenge is a book published the year you were born. While I obviously can’t recommend a book for each and every one of you for the year you were born, I thought it would be fun to look back at the 1990s (the decade I was born in!) and the 80s (just for fun!) to highlight a few books that have stood the test of time!
I’ll share some resources at the bottom of this post that will help you find books published the year you were born, too— be sure to check those out and comment here with what book you’re reading from your birth year!
Here are 20 popular books published in the 80s and 90s:
PS— A few helpful resources for finding books published the year you were born: this article on LitHub, this tool on Goodreads to search for popular books by decade, 50 bestselling books of the 90s, the 200 best novels in English since 1950
