You should read Princess Bride by William Goldman. You dream of a romping adventure with just a hint of humor thrown in. And this tale with the dread pirate Roberts and Rodents of abnormally large size, will not disappoint. Do not be fooled. The book is much better than the movie.
You should read Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin. You're full of honor and good virtues. A heartwrenching drama is the right ticket for you, and Pride and Prejudice, (non-zombie version) is a tale focused on bringing two good hearted people together.
You should read Stardust by Neil Gaiman. You're interested in a fairy tale for adults with all the classic fantasy elements. From the genius mind of Neil Gaiman, author of Sandman and Neverwhere, this is a fantastic journey that you will never forget.
You should read The Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare. This is a timeless story, if the multiple recent movie productions are any indication. If you've ever been misunderstood, this is a play for you.
