NonChristian fiction/novels - What have you added to your library over the years?

Rebirth of an old question; in need of refreshing IMO. 

What novels / fiction works have you added to your church library in the past few years?

Which books do you have in your collection which don't have Christian authors (necessarily) or 'Christian related' themes which you have nonetheless included due to their literary value?

Since I'm just beginning (first 6 months) to build a new church library, I'd appreciate your insight on this. I have many donated books to wade through at this point; no budget to work with/purchase new material.

Do appreciate your input.
