Non-tagged, shamelessly stolen, now it's your turn, interesting book list

I stole this from my friend Ty's blog. Call me crazy, but I like stuff like this. If you'd like to play along, leave me a comment when you've done your own list!

* Bold the ones you’ve read.* Italicize the ones you want to read.* Leave in normal text the ones that don’t interest you.* Put in ALL CAPS those you haven’t heard of.* Put a couple of asterisks by the ones you recommend, anywhere from 1-3 depending on how much you recommend them.

oh fun fun fun - I'm playing!

You really never heard of the Mists of Avalon? She wrote two others, the Forest House and Lady of Avalon which should be read first. It's all about the story of King Arthur from the women's perspective. You'll love it.
