One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck
Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut
Weird History 101 by John Richard Stephens
Twilight by Stephanie Meyers
New Moon by Stephanie Meyers

I've realized that Garcia Marquez has overtaken Steinbeck as my favorite author. Read all of his books and then get on your knees and thank whatever divine power you believe in for granting you the extreme privilege of existing in a time that you are able to read his works. Should there be an absence of belief in divine power, thank your science.

A Dirty Job is one of Moore's better books, second only to Lamb. Moore is one clever motherfucker.

I read The Trachinian Women and Oedipus Rex. You either like this type of writing or you don't. If you do, you've already read them; if you don't, there's no way I could convince you.

The Good Earth was enjoyable because I'm a fan of multi-generational stories that follow a family or a town.

Slaughterhouse-Five is a classic. Again, you most likely already know if you like Vonnegut.

I suggest skipping Stephens's work and instead look at specific and narrow books of historical incidents that you would like.

Don't judge me for Meyers. I know. I ignored the whole phenom for such a long time, and then the internet blew up. I had to know if she is as bad as I have heard (this happens all of the time, if someone says a book sucks, I have to read it). She is.

There are probably more, but I'm not remembering.
