More about literature: Reading list

On the Book festival and Fair, wich I attended last weekend, I realised, that there are lots of books, I've planned to read, and they still await! I considered myself-well read, however not in contemporary, or modern stories!Here are a few writers, whose books I plan to read.

Vladimír Nabokov's Lolita, wich I've stopped halfway. 
Virginia Woolf
Silvia Plath
Oscar Wilde re-read things.
Roda Roda 
Ken Follet
Kurt Vonnegut
Robert Merle's historical books
Aldous Huxley
Classical russian writers: Turgenev, Cehov, Tolstoy, Dostoyevskiy, Puskin, Bunin, Bulgakov, Gogol
Guy de Maupaussant.
Henrik Ibsen
Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Earnest Hemingway
Chuck Palahniuk not only Fight Club.
Franz Kafka
Thomas Mann
Jan Neruda
Hermann Hesse
 Dino Buzzati
Marian Keyes (if I start to get depressed from all that high lliterature...)

And this: 
Source is on it, very clever! :)

If you have any other recommendation, please mention in the comments!
Also, I found my (prettier) writer doppelganger: Sofi Oksanen. Hell, even her voice resembles to mine. I plan to read every single thing she wrote. :)

Clever and talented and pretty Sofi Oksanen...

....and...well. Me. :D

(I know that only our glasses look the same. Still. It's good to believe, that I can reach Sofi Oksanen-coolness level one day.)

Excellent resolution! It makes me happy to recognize a fair number of names on that list and even enjoy a good number of them!

Keep us updated with how your reading goes and any particularly good stories or authors. Be they unknown or not.

Thank you!

So far no progress, I think I should start with the russian ones. :)
