I recommend "Catcher In the Rye" and the "Five People You meet in Heaven."

Sorry, I misunderstood the question Ali...

I thought you were asking for books with a religious connotation-- books of an ethereal nature.

Geeze, what is the big deal. Recommend books you like, it's not rocket science. Don't make something out of nothing.

As already mentioned Catcher in the Rye, and I'm going to recommend Angela's Ashes.

I agree, Catcher in the Rye, To Kill A Mocking Bird, and The Diary of Anne Frank are a must read.

I would also like to recommend a more contemporary novel: The Time Traveler's Wife. I'm too young to be in a relationship, but reading this book made me think this is what it would be like. (Through all the obstacles and heartbreak, etc.)
