Ender's Shadow (The Shadow Series)
2.  Ender's Shadow (The Shadow Series) by Orson Scott Card

Chasing Shakespeares: A Novel

Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West
4.  Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire

Son of a Witch
5.  Son of a Witch by Gregory Maguire

$18.89   Used & New from: $0.01
3.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (458 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

The Time Traveler's Wife
7.  The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

Outlander
9.  Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
The list author says:
