Sue Monk Kidd's Book List

Recommended reading from the author of The Secret Life of Bees

Lost Horizon: A Novel by James Hilton (Harper Perennial, 2004)
Sue Monk Kidd: “I read it over and over again. It was a like a spell, and you didn’t want the spell to be broken. It was this exotic, otherworldly story.”

Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë (Penguin Books, 2007)
Sue Monk Kidd: “I was in love with the Brontë sisters . . . My favorite was Wuthering Heights, which I read and reread. It was all dark and brooding. I must’ve seen my 14-year-old self in it.”

The Awakening by Kate Chopin (Avon, 1982)
Sue Monk Kidd: “I can look back and say [The Awakening] affected me deeply as a writer.”

Walden, or, Life in the Woods by Henry David Thoreau (Castle Books, 2007)
Sue Monk Kidd: "It is a very narrative memoir to me. I think a young writer has to find those works that particularly speak to them."
