My favorite Sidney Sheldon novels

Sidney Sheldon(1917-2007), the favorite of many. Even before I could realize the author was He and not She I had a become a great fan of his Books. 
He is one such writers who puts flesh and blood into the characters. It feels as if the characters are performing for you and around you. The intriguing story line unfolds slowly and captivates you into its magical world. Each and every story is so original, full of captivating and fascinating plots and thrilling finishes. I found his novels are mostly woman oriented ( at least the ones I have read are). 

The first novel I read was 'The Sky is Falling', gifted by my brother long time back. I got some free time couple of weeks back and my obvious choice was Sidney. Finished two of his beautiful novels in just three days!!. So, I thought why not I put together the list of the novels I have 'already read' and 'to be read'. I know it is very difficult to pick one Favorite book for the Sheldon fans, every read falls into the Favorite category. Still you can mention the book you loved reading the most.

Please add on to the list if I have missed any.
