My Top 10 Books for an Unapologetically American Reading List

By RU Twisted Most “must read” reading lists are, to put it bluntly, as boring as a Lifetime movie. Yeah, we all get it—Huckleberry Finn and The Great Gatsby are “classics” so we’re all supposed to read them. This is a little different. The goal is to list a few books that I, as Editor-in-Chief…
