Some great books on your list. Cider House Rules is John Irving at his best and The Other Boleyn Girl is definitely the best of the series. My favourite by far though is Coming Home by Rosamunde Pilcher. I could recommend you to every one of her books but it seems you have your shelves full as it is.

Happy reading
