This is great, I have so many new books to put on my list now!
Other faves of mine:
Gone With The Wind-Margaret Mitchell. I once heard that if you haven't read this book, you cannot call yourself a truly educated person.
Marjorie Morningstar-Herman Wouk. My other Wouk book. All girls should read it.
Presumed Innocent-Scott Turow. The court scenes in this book blow me away
The Daughter of Time-Josephine Tey. Of course!
Also, anything by:
Sharon Kay Penman
Maeve Binchy (light reading)
Barbara Michaels/Elizabeth Peters (light reading)
Alan Moore (yes, graphic novels)
And for non-fiction, I really enjoyed:
What Our Mothers Never Told Us, by Danielle Crittenden
The Extraordinary Endings of Practically Everything and Everybody, by Charles Panati
What Jane Austen Ate and Charles Dickens Knew, which is under my bed right now and I'm too lazy to find it so I'll add the correct author later
The Burden of Bad Ideas, by Heather MacDonald
The Way You Wear Your Hat: Frank Sinatra and the Lost Art of Livin', by Bill Zehme.
And anything by Miss Manners, whose books I have all of.
