One of my fav's is the Black Jewels Trilogy by Anne Bishop. It starts with Daughter of the Blood continues with Heir to the Shadows and ends with Queen of the Darkness.

You have a matriarchal society that has been slowly and completely twisted by those who were supposed to protect. Early on we get a prophecy that one will come to set things to right, dreams made flesh, and there have been many strong dreamers. We follow a trio of males and the young girl who fills the prophecy as she grows into her power.

Two warnings though, near the end of the first book there is a violent rape, and is treated as such. Second, you'll want all three books when you start to read it because they are that addicting and you'll want to know what happens next despite the fact that the book is at an end.

Moby Dick. Herman Melville. No description should be necessary. Long-winded and turgid by today's standards, but very vivid in places.

The Grapes of Wrath. John Steinbeck. Ditto. Possibly the greatest American novel ever.

The Nick Adams Stories. Ernest Hemingway. Published after Papa died, the book arranges his semi-autobiographical short stories more or less in chronological order. This was one of the books that got me started writing.

The Old Man and the Sea, also Hemingway. Incredible read. One man and a fish.

When the Legends Die. Hal Borland. A Ute Indian trying to kill his past.

My Dad's a big fan of Dickens and is always after me to get through A Tale of Two Cities, but it just keeps sitting on my shelf.

Oh, and everyone should read my book, of course. :wink:
