This is intended to be a book reccommendation thread. If you see a book listed on this thread that you are familiar with and you know of another book that someone might like based on their reccommendation, then you reccommend that book. Get it? For example: Someone says that they reccommend Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, then someone else might see that and say "If you like that book you'll love The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield", then someone else might see that and say, "If you like Thirteeth Tale you might enjoy Northanger Abby by Jane Austen," and then Mysteries of Udolpho by Ann Radcliffe, and so on and so forth. (Sorry, I'm a Brit Lit geek)
Anyway, I'll get the ball rolling with a some better known works. Feel free to respond to any of the titles listed above or below.
-The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
-The John Green canon
-Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
-Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
-The Watchmen by Alan Moore
Thanks. I've always wanted to read Udolpho and then Northanger so I can have the proper context. Did you see the movie "Becoming Jane"? Jane Austen actually meets Ann Radcliffe in that movie. I was like, "Ahh! No way! Did that happen???" I'm pretty sure they made that up for the movie, though. Still, that would have been a cool conversation to sit in on.

The Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde, wherein the main character travels into fiction and interacts with characters like Jane Eyre, Miss Havisham and the Cheshire Cat (who due to boundary changes is now the Unitary Authority of Warrington Cat). It sounds like bad fanfiction when written like that, but then that's why I don't write reviews
Re: the Watchmen: The Sandman series by Neil Gaiman
Orson Scott Card: Enchantment
If you like Jane Austen, read Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. Gothic. The Space Trilogy of C.S. Lewis and also Till We Have Faces TheSilmarillion by Tolkien. Trust me, it all clicks after the first 80 pages. Survival of the Sickest; nonfiction, but purely fascinating.
