- A Tree Grows in Brooklyn - A story of fate and dysfunction in New York.
- The Time Traveler's Wife - This book came wrapped with a package of tissues tied to the top, which pretty much says it all.

- The Handmaiden's Tale - Set in bleak future where women have few rights.
- One for the Money - Clever stories featuring a female bounty hunter.
