Sci-Fi and Fantasy Shelved as General Fiction

Genres always have blurry lines between them. Here is a list of fifty books that contain sci-fi or fantasy elements that are often shelved with general fiction - sometimes because they're considered classics, sometimes because the SFF element is minimal, sometimes because of the writing style, or sometimes just because the author or the publishing house has stated that that's where it belongs! Alternate history, dystopia, and magical realism abound - how many have you read?
