I figure if you know what I like to read, you may have some good suggestions for my "to read" list!
  1. East of Eden by John Steinbeck
  2. One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  3. Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
  4. Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell
    Yes I know
  5. The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
  6. Anything written by John Steinbeck
  7. Anything written by Haruki Murakami
  8. Harry Potter series by JK Rowling
    This should go without saying, but still
  9. The Princess Bride by William Goldman
  10. The Other Boleyn Girl by Phillippa Gregory
    Yes, I know again
  11. Anything about Anne Boleyn or Tudor England
    I love that shit
  12. Period piece romances in general are great
    But nothing that would be IN the romance section at Barnes & Noble
  13. The Godfather by Mario Puzo
  14. American Psycho by @BretEastonEllis
  15. Memoirs about drug addiction/general life fucking up
  16. The Old Man and the Sea by Earnest Hemingway
  17. Anything with Don Draper/Michael Corleone/Javert/Charles Foster Kane-esque characters
    Complex, blur the lines between good and bad, moral yet corrupt, layers upon layers of character development
  18. Can't stand Fifty Shades of Grey, but I'm liking Outlander so far
    I guess that also falls into the romantic period genre
  19. Confederacy of Dunces
    Suggested by @ChrisK
  20. The silent gondoliers
    Suggested by @ChrisK
  21. Doc by Mary Doria Russell.
    Suggested by @ouizoid
  22. Midnight's Children - Salman Rushdie
    Based on both One Hundred Years of Solitude and Haruki Murakami (different from both but related).
