Great list! I've read Frankenstein. It's a bit different than the popular culture. I'm a big fan of the Women's Murder Club series. There, again, a lot different than the series. Some of the others are very intriguing. I'll have to check back with this list occasionally for inspiration.

My entry for this week has the same theme! I have John Grisham's book on my list. Kite Runner is one of my favorite books ever. I hope you enjoy it! I'm going to add Maximum Ride #4 to my list for this year.

I think I would enjoy pretty much all of those, except the Bible. I shall definitely be buying Grisham's one soon.
