1. Native Son – Richard Wright
2. The Catcher in the Rye – J. D. Salinger
3. Zeitoun – Dave Eggers
4. Infinite Jest – David Foster Wallace
5. The Jungle – Upton Sinclair

7. In the Time of the Butterflies – Julia Alvarez
8. The Tragedy of Othello – William Shakespeare
9. Harry Potter (whole series) – J. K. Rowling
10. Leaves of Grass – Walt Whitman
