Oh where to begin! For short stories, how about "The Lady or the Tiger?" for a twisted love story? Other short stories might be "A Rose for Emily" or "The Wife of His Youth" but I'd also suggest "A&P" so you think outside the box. As a short book, why not "Water for Elephants"?

I would recommend "The Gift of the Magi" from O Henry. In this story we read a bout a poor young married couple who each give up their most prized possessions to buy each a Christmas gift. Students usually get a kick out of the irony.
