Ten Novels

One of my resolutions for this year was to read ten novels, at least some of them contemporary and literary. So far I've read:

  • Heart of Darkness, by Conrad
  • A Bend in the River, by Naipaul
  • Things Fall Apart, Achebe
  • Infinite Jest, Wallace
  • The Great Gatsby, by Fitzgerald
  • Dracula, by Stoker
  • Hunger Games, by Collins
Any nominees for the rest?  I have a few queued up that I'm not too enthusiastic about (Age of Innocence by Wharton, Frankenstein (Shelley) and another Naipaul.)  Maybe something modern but not too obnoxious.
