The Great Gatsby and Catcher in the Rye were mentioned, so I'll go with The Stranger by Albert Camus and On The Road by Jack Keruac.

I'm not going to be as deep as everyone else, but I think the Harry Potter books are a must read. Definitely agree on The Dairy of Anne Frank and Memoirs of a Geisha, those two are great.

Also, L'Éléphant bleu [The Blue Elephant] by Ysabelle Lacant and Beacon at Alexandria by Gillian Bradshaw. And ack, there are others I can't seem to think of right now. I'll come back to this thread often I think. Thanks for starting it

Definetly Catcher in the Rye, if you haven't read that book sometime before graduating highschool, you are just missing out.
I also like a Million Little Pieces by James Frey, The Lovely Bones, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,On the Road, and The Story of my Life by Jay McInerny.

I forgot to mention The Hours by Michael Cunningham. Depressing, but definitely worth it.

I love Paulinna Simons. The Bronze Horseman was my favorite (in the US the sequal was called Tatiana and Alexander) I haven't read The Girl in Times Square. I don't know if it's been released in the US yet. Have you read Tully? That's a good one too. I think 11 Hours was the only book of hers that I didn't like.
