    I love your list, although i haven’t heard of a lot if books you suggested. Anyway you should definetly read Revolutionary Road, it’s one of my favorites. Veronika decides to die is very good too, and i’m the middle if The Lovely Bones right now, seems interesting.
    Have you tried the Dan Browns? they’re pretty awesome too! =)
