If you could recommend 10 books, what would they be?

In no particular order (and this list would probably change daily lol), here's mine:
1. White Oleander
2. The Lovely Bones
3. Detour: My Bipolar Roadtrip in 4D
4. To Kill a Mockingbird
5. The Grapes of Wrath
6. The Five People You Meet in Heaven
7. Angels & Demons
8. The DaVinci Code
9. Digital Fortress
10. The Bell Jar

(I can never decide if book related questions should go in Entertainment, or Hobbies and Crafts.)
