Suggestive Request

I received $100 in bookstore gift cards for my birthday. (Yummy!) I have been working on my wish list for the big shopping trip. I have lots of books in my want-to-read notes but would like some fresh ideas.

So dear LJ friends, please suggest one fiction and one non-fiction book to me. I can't promise that I will buy all the recommendations (I can only make the $ go so far) but each and every one will be put on my master list.

Oooh, that's a GREAT birthday gift! :D
I can't think of any non-fiction books off the top of my head, but here are two fiction books I really enjoyed:

I remember you really liking Joyce Carol Oates. One of my favorite books by her is Blonde, a fictionalized account about Marilyn Monroe....it's rather long (500 or so pages I believe) but it reads quickly.

If you'd like something smaller, my absolute favorite book in the whole wide world is The Death of Vishnu. This ought to be required reading for EVERYBODY. It's beautiful. I can't even describe the plot, it's so intricate....it's one of the only books that ever made me cry.

I hadn't heard about Blonde. That one sounds very intriguing. And I just checked out The Death of Vishnu description. I think I will like that one, too.

Thanks Ann!
