    I haven't read any books from list A, but from List B, I'd definitely recommend The Bonesetter's Daughter by Amy Tan. Of course, you'd probably want to have some interest in Chinese history and culture (and/or some background information) since it would help you have a better understanding (and enjoyment) of the book but it isn't required.

    I;m reading The Kite Runner. Well, I am going to. It is my summer reading assignment so i think teachers will be happy that you read that book. Of course you could read multipule but that is the one i know.

    I haven't read any. I think you should research each online and pick. Just read quick summaries of each book and pick the one that you would enjoy more.
