The Historian - Elizabeth Kostova
Sort of a different take on the myth of Dracula and Vlad Tepes, which involves three generations looking for his resting place. Definitely has a bit of a 'gothic horror' feel to it. Very very enjoyable.
Catch 22 - Joseph Heller
Brilliant book. Very witty and clever. Although I don't think I would have read it as many times had I not chosen it as the subject of my dissertation.
