  1. Awesome giveaway, don't enter me though because I own or have read all of the books you've listed! It just shows that we have similar taste.

    The literary fiction book I most often recommend is Po-on by the Filipino writer F. Sionil Jose. (I even got four people to read it! A huge success for me: I'm used to having people politely ignore my recommendations.) It is published outside the Philippines with the title Dusk, but don't worry about bad translations. Jose wrote the original in English! =)

    If you will forgive some shameless self-promotion in the name of recommending a book I truly love, here is a post I wrote about its main character last year: Character Connection: Eustaquio "Istak" Salvador.

    From among your favourites, I'd have to go with Rebecca.

    Thanks for this chance! =)

    Thanks.

  4. The literary fiction book that I usually recommend would be The Woman in White.

  5. I'd love the Book Thief!

    You've got several of my recommendations in your list and my all-time favourite is not actually fiction (and it's what I'm giving away, once my post goes live in a couple of hours)... But, something I think is quirky and a great reflection of my home, London is Geoff Ryman's 353 - a tale of one tube journey.

  6. I usually recommend The Poisonwood Bible, or something by Margaret Atwood when it comes to more recent literary fiction.

    Like Melissa above, we must have similar taste in books, but there is one on the list that I haven't read--Cloud Atlas. I would love a chance to win!

  17. I just found your blog from the blog hop but it looks like we have similar tastes in books so I'll have to stop by again!

    I've been recommending The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society to everyone I talk to about books lately but overall the first book I talk to people about is Franny and Zooey.

    Somehow I haven't been able to get my hands on a copy of Pride and Prejudice and I've always meant to read it so I'd love to win that!

  38. The literary book I most recommend really depends on the person asking, but if I think they'll like it and haven't read it, my favorite is Tropic of Cancer by Henry Miller.

    It's embarrassing to admit, but I haven't The Woman in White yet and it is on my Top TBR (when I get personal reading time) so I'd LOVE to win:
    The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins

  40. I tend to recommend either books by Charles Dickens or Jane Austen when asked about literary classics by other people. Lets say Pride and Prejudice for the sake of this giveaway.

    I would love to get The Book Thief by Markus Zusak as it is on my wishlist but I haven't managed to purchase it as yet.

  41. I mostly recommend books from Jane Austen because I like her writing. And mostly it is Pride and Prejudice.

    And I would like to read The Book Thief because I heard so many amazing things about this book that I must read it. :) I have this book on my wishlist for months.

  42. What a fantastic list of books. Some of my favourites are on there! Since I just finished reading Rebecca, and LOVED it. I have to recommend that. Totally need to get my hands on some more Du Maurier.

  43. Lately I have been recommending Tess of the D'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy quite a lot. It is a classic which I have recently reread and enjoyed. The Invisible Bridge by Julie Orringer has been my top contemporary read in the recent past.

    If I win your drawing, I would pick Cloud Atlas, as someone recently recommended it to me.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I think by now 'Cutting for Stone' must be the book I most often recommend.

    As for the list, I would choose The Poisonwood Bible, since I have had the book on my wishlist for birthdays for years but no one ever seems to buy it for me.

    My email address is irisonbooks [at] gmail [dot] com

  45. The book I recommend the most is The Secret History by Donna Tartt. I would like Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea as I seem to be on a Heminway roll this year. I read this book as a teenager but I think I'd like to read this as an adult.

  50. Two of my favourite literary novels are 'The Picture of Dorian Gray' (gothic, witty, awesome) and 'The Secret History' (dark, bookish, awesome). I recommend them every chance I get!

    I think I'd choose 'East of Eden' from the list, since I only have an ancient, brittle paperback of that one right now. Great selection, thanks!

  60. What a great choice of books, Kristi! You know, I've read all but 2 of these? Still, I'd love a copy of East of Eden because that is one of my favorite books, but I don't own it myself. So, I'd be very happy if I won that.

    The book I recommend to people? It depends so much. I've just been blog-hopping at The Book Whisperer who is giving away Blindness by José Saramago - that book scores high on my list of Great Books (as does East of Eden).

  73. My stand-by recommendation is always One Hundred Years of Solitude because it is so original. My recommendation for a current release is Galore by Michael Crummey. It also chronicles life in an isolated community, but without the magical realism. It's more...folksy. It's a very compelling tale.

    I would like to win the Cloud Atlas. I've heard great things!

  101. Thank you for being apart of the giveaway! (: I'm honestly not sure if I've read any literary fiction books, but after reading a comment on the blog and someone suggesting To Kill a Mockingbird, that brought me back to my high school years and what books we read then. I would probably suggest Catcher in the Rye, if that counts. That was one of the few books I loved in high school because a teenager can easily relate to Holden, with the life situations to the cursing, even. I would probably like to win The Book Thief (:

    I make a lot of recommendations, and they usually depend on the tastes of the person I am recommending the book to. I recommend the Princess Bride by William Goldman a lot, because most people have seen the movie and not read the book, which is okay because he wrote the screenplay too. But I enjoy the commentary in the book.

  175. The book I recommend the most happens to be "Pride & Prejudice" by Jane Austen. Especially to my female friends/acquaintances. I believe that author Jane Austen was a feminist, before feminism became a famous movement. Her female protagonists rebel against the norms, and make a niche for themselves in the hearts of male and female readers. Second to that (for those who don't much care for classics), is the recommendation for either "THE GOD OF SMALL THINGS" by Arundhati Roy or "The Poisonwood Bible" by Barbara Kingsolver.

    I'd love for a chance to win/read "The Thirteenth Tale" by Diane Setterfield, since I've read almost all of the others, and it seems like it would be such an interesting book! :)

  176. Gosh, I believe I recommend a lot of books, and have been doing that for sf & fantasy mostly lately ;) I'd say The Song of Everlasting Sorrow by Wang Anyi. It's such a beautiful tale of Shanghai and perfectly captures that so contemporary nostalgic longing of Chinese people for the past (a bit strange when you know that Shanghai has a semi-colonial past).
    I like all the books from your list and have read some of them already. Because I've heard quite a lot of good things about The Book Thief by Markus Zusak lately, I'd love to be entered for that book :)

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  180. AARGH. Forgot to add my recommendation. That's 'Maps for Lost Lovers' by Nadeem Aslam. I picked it up a few years ago because it had a promotional quote by David Mitchell on the cover -- became my instant favourite of the year once I'd read it! Aslam is one of my other fav authors ever since. His imagery is just plain gorgeous. :)

  184. My recommendations change so often. Right now it's Maurice by EM Forster (both book and film are recommended!).

    This is a great list of books. I'd love to be entered for The Book Thief please. :)

  186. What wonderful choices (and so hard to choose from, too!)

    My literary recommendation depends on the reader: For younger readers, The Book Thief and The Giver

    For young adults (especially females): Jane Eyre

    For people who aren't afraid of dark reads: The Road

    The list could go on; there are just way too many good books out there, and each reader will have their own take and taste for them.

    Because I recently read Drood, I've become interested in Wilkie Collins, so I would have to choose The Woman in White (although I still keep waffling between it, The Remains of the Day, and The Thirteenth Tale).

    Thanks so much for the chance to win!
