Oliver Twist and David Copperfield by Dickens
L'Assommoir and Au Bonheur des Dames by Zola
Ensemble c'est tout by Anna Gavalda

Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov.

Also, I love Haruki Murakami. All of his books are wonderfully simplistic and complex - easy to read, but thought provoking.

Its totally a weird topic and a bit disturbing at points. But it also has some hysterical moments, and it covers a true event

Disco Bloodbath by James St. James

Also I LOVE anything by Anais Nin.
