  1. http://birdbrainbb.files.wordpress.com/2010/09/417dtnsk1el.jpgWho’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? by Edward Albee – I’ve been wanting to read this forever, but I never seem to remember to buy it.
  2. https://i0.wp.com/ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51thX-KjneL._SL500_AA300_.jpgShanghai Girls by Lisa See – a friend from high school recommended this recently because apparently the fashion in it is awesome! Also it’s a story about sister relationships during tumultuous times.
  3. https://i0.wp.com/upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/9/95/Jesus_son_ver5.jpg/220px-Jesus_son_ver5.jpgJesus’s Son by Denis Johnson – every now and then I listen to the New Yorker Fiction Podcast, which is awesome, and I heard Tobias Wolff read “Emergency” and was like holy crap I need to read a novel by this dude. (It was also referenced recently in my creative writing class).
  4. https://i0.wp.com/images.contentreserve.com/ImageType-100/0293-1/%7BA773495C-E809-47F1-A014-2DCF3B5F922F%7DImg100.jpgSleeping Beauty by Judith Avery – a romance novel version of a super creepy fairy tale? Yes, please.
  5. https://i0.wp.com/www.davidnichollswriter.com/system/application/themes/davidnicholls/images/one_day_big.jpgOne Day by David Nicholls – I keep seeing this around and it’s supposedly a great novel with strong romantic elements.
  6. https://i2.wp.com/i3.bibtopia.com/o/444/029/9780140029444.OL-m.jpgCouples by John Updike – I read about this in GQ recently. This guy wrote an article about why 50 Shades sucked and gave some examples of sexy books with literary merit. Also I remember really liking A Month of Sundays!
  7. http://regularrumination.files.wordpress.com/2009/03/fear-flying-erica-jong-paperback-cover-art.jpgFear of Flying by Erica Jong – this has been on my list since someone suggested it in the comments of my post on Thought Catalog in August.
  8. https://i2.wp.com/www.sylviaday.com/WP/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/seven_new_217.jpgSeven Years to Sin by Sylvia Day – I really liked Day’s novel Bared to You and I’d love to read more of her work.
  9. http://alelivrosrs.files.wordpress.com/2010/07/runaway1.jpgRunaway by Alice Munro – I’m embarrassed to say I’ve never read anything by Munro. This is a collection of her stories that’s sort of like a grab bag of her best.
  10. https://i0.wp.com/d.gr-assets.com/books/1319032910l/10956.jpgThe Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides – He’s only written like 3 novels and I’ve read 2. So bring on the third!!
