- Mark Twain, Mississippi Writings
- Charles Dickens, Great Expectations
- Ian McEwan, Saturday
- Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse five
- Ernest Hemmingway, For Whom the Bells Toll
- Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
- Albert Camus, The Stranger
So far this is my list. I want to venture back to the classics and hopefully expand my literary compass. Feel free to recommend books that you have read and particularly like.
