One of my all time faves! The Unbearable Lightness of Being – Milan Kundera This book is hard to put down. Kundera looks at relationships and people with a wide lens, capturing all their flaws and the influences in their life that made them that way.
Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte Jane, a melancholy orphan doesn't fit in at her Aunt's house, gets sent to Lowood charity school, and preservers to become a governess. One of my favorite classics, if a little melodramatic at times
