"Reading is sexy." -Rory Gilmore's shirt that I want real bad

I had a request from a couple friends for book recommendations, and I thought I'd share a short list with the blogosphere (I'm trying to keep myself distracted because I have no desire to think about ballroom).

Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
Ender's Shadow by Orson Scott Card
The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood by Rebecca Wells
The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri
Unaccustomed Earth by Jhumpa Lahiri
The Bonesetter's Daughter by Amy Tan
The Hundred Secret Senses by Amy Tan
The Opposite of Fate by Amy Tan
(ok, let's just face it, pretty much anything by Amy Tan I'd love love her books)
The Chosen by Chaim Potok
My Name is Asher Lev by Chaim Potok

If you've read any of these, or if you have any other recommendations (I'm always looking for new books), please share your thoughts. :)

I don't know what josh thinks about Frankenstein, but if it's bad, don't listen to him. The literature is beautiful! I'll look through my bookshelf and see what I've read in the past that you might like!
